They're coming for our holidays

Earlier today, when the Egyptian military's 48 hour deadline expired (at 10:30am EDT) and nothing seemed to be happening, my first thought was that the military will give him an extra day. That way the coup would happen on July 4th. Then later on the Egypt could appropriate the day as a national holiday commemorating the start of, um, whatever happens next.

It's been less than five hours and the army is on the move. Still, Cairo is 6 hours ahead of the American East Coast when the U.S. is on daylight savings time. If they delay snatching Morsi by just a few hours it will be July 4th in Egypt. I'm telling ya. That's the plan. Because the entire world is just as American-centric as Americans are. You heard it from me first.
