Interestingly, the Government spokepeople themselves said there had been over 17 million people demonstrating against Morsi. Morsi won the elections with 13.5 million votes and passed his new constitution with even fewer votes. So uh. Certainly a coup is not the cleanest way to remove him but the popular anger against him was too enormous to justify keeping him around.

It's a very complex situation, we'll need to see how it develops.
