Egypt's military has ousted Morsi - What does this portend for Egyptian democracy?

Yes, the Muslim Brotherhood's Presdient Mohammed Morsi was curbing democratic rights, firstmost, the rights of protestors.

But having the military secure democracy is a risky thing.

Is Egypt inching towards becoming the next Algeria, a state which cancels electoral results if Islamists win?

On the other hand, I share the great feelings of discomfort that liberal Egyptians have expressed over the inching power-grab on the part of Morsi.
