Egypt's deadly day

CNN's Brian Todd brings us the rawest images and one brutally honest take on what some say is Egypt's deadliest day since the 2011 uprising.

Warning: The images in this piece are graphic, and viewer discretion is advised.

    I suppose you are watching what is going on in Egypt. How do you feel when you see the so called pacifist pro Morsy, shooting at residential buildings and at people with machine guns? These are the people you are standing behind.
    How did you feel when these same people destroyed and burned over 82 churches all over Egypt, burning and looting the houses of the Christians in Upper Egypt.?
    When will you really understand that Egypt is fighting for its life, it's very existence against a cruel,vicious, Faschist Islamic militants, known as the Moslem Brotherhood. When will you react and speak out the truth? Your conscience will one day awake and all the dollars that you are being given to distort the truth, will not quieten it.
    Shame on you for standing by terrorists and terror. Egypt will never die, we are passing through very hard times but believe me, WE will prevail, and the truth will be known to all.
    As for the wishy-washy policies of Mr. Obama, he reminds me of a stanza that Nostradamus said " the man whom you think comes for peace, is the one who will bring war" and this happened.
    What a difference to the time when he first visited Egypt, he was received with open hands and hearts and now he was able to single handed turn 90% of the Egyptians against him and his administration (a feat even the Bush administration could not achieve). How low he fell.
    Last but not least, I always admired you and respected you, but it seems I was naïve in believing that you stand for truth and for the freedom of people especially women.

    Wow ! Look at the results John McCain and Lindsey Graham had over in Egypt. When this geriatric duo get together and travels to a foreign country and try to push their idiotic agendas on the people... Well the people just go into a chaotic trance. I will say this , it is way past time to end giving any money or arms, to any of these Arabic Countries. It's also past time spending money on John McCain and Lindsey Graham travel trips, let them honeymoon on their own dime. What kinda magical places to travel are out there, for the totally absurd and a limp wrist side kick ?
