British politicos' misinformed rhetoric removed from reality of modern Egypt

Perhaps there was too little to "flesh out" for this Wikinews article on the planned elections following Morsi's ouster, but the comments attributed to Hague and Blair are ludicrous political rhetoric. According to Wikipedia's articles on presidents of Egypt since a military coup d'état overthrew King Farouk in 1952, Egypt's presidents have been mostly appointed by the military that still has control. Perhaps Hague and Blair might benefit from excellent Wikipedia articles on modern Egypt, starting from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egyptian_Revolution_of_1952. As for former PM Tony Blair's supposed comment that "the intervention by the army was necessary to prevent "chaos"", daresay begs the question of the definition of "chaos".

I hate to quote Fox News, but "we report, you decide".
