The title of a recently released Reuters article is “Blast at Egyptian ARMY building in Delta WOUNDS four soldiers” (Web-site/URL: http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/12/29/us-egypt-explosion-idUSBRE9BS03B20131229).
“A bomb exploded outside an Egyptian army building north of Cairo on Sunday (December 28, 2013), wounding FOUR soldiers, the army(i.e. SCAF) said, in the second bomb attack on security forces in the Nile Delta in less than a week“.
“The bomb partly destroyed the back wall of the military intelligence building in the village of Anshas, 100 km (60 miles) north of the capital (Cairo)”.
“The army described the bombing as a terrorist attack. Its statement referred to “GROUPS OF DARKNESS” and did not name the Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamist group it declared a terrorist organization last week”. SCAF did not explicitly state that the Muslim Brotherhood was behind this latest attack but this is what they are IMPLYING now that the latter has officially been named A TERRORIST GROUP (Web-site/URL: http://www.cnn.com/2013/12/25/world/africa/egypt-muslim-brotherhood-terrorism/index.html?sr=sharebar_twitter).
“In Anshas, some residents were quick to BLAME the Brotherhood for Sunday’s (December 29, 2013) attack”: According to Ahmed Salah, “wearing a dusty tracksuit and standing near the damaged building”, “The Brotherhood want to SCARE people so they DON’T come out for the referendum“ and SCAF DOESN’T “want to scare people?” This is our latest/yet example of “We think they made us mad; they think we made them mad and here we go” (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI). We also have our latest/yet another example of BLAMING & CRITICIZING (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-AJviZ8Itk).
Finally, according to HA Hellyer, “a Cairo-based fellow with the Royal United Services Institute”. “THERE WILL BE MORE (attacks). I DON’T think that any factor has changed that would lessen the attacks, at least in the short term” by BOTH sides, but SCAF is likely to remain STRONGER. “Those that oppose the army and want to see Mursi’s reinstatement GO BEYOND the Muslim Brotherhood – and it is likely some NON–Brotherhood Islamists have turned to violence, including, but NOT EXCLUSIVELY, those within the Ansar Bayt al Maqdis group“. DOES SCAF REALIZE THIS?
We can conclude TWO things here. First, this is the latest TERRORIST ATTACK in Egypt. On top of this, it is the clearest signal yet that THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD wants to stay in the spotlight/stay relevant.
