Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy expressed sorrow for the "lost lives and bloodshed" in recent political unrest in a speech Thursday night and said "the only way is dialogue to reach a consensus to secure the interests of this country."
His speech comes a day after violent protests outside his presidential palace that left six people dead and at least 672 wounded.
What's driving Egypt's unrest?
Addressing "those who oppose me" and his supporters, Morsy condemned violent protests, saying those guilty "will not escape punishment."

This guy reminds me of obama; it's all about "me" and what "I" want. Screw the citizenry!
Jim, You really need to stop drinking the koolaid... you are flat out crazy.
Jim may've overstated matters but Steve, you understate them. Both of you dink the koolaid, just difference flavors.
LOL.....he denounces the violence when he is the very cause of the violence.....what a clown.
Are these new democratically elected leaders ever going to follow democracy?
fascists in Congress, Senate, and White House are no better....
People who've never lived democracy fail to understand democracy. It's like the difference between simply reading about what an orange tastes like and actually eating an orange. Same with Afganistan and Iraq. A lesson I hope we learn.
bob, very well put
Morsi *lived* in the US for several years. I suspect he is really trying to protect a path to democracy... and badly misjudged the way. Politicians can screw up, you know.
You are right on...Sometimes it's hard to convince 49.9% of the people they are wrong...and the 50.1% can't agree on anything either. Democracy is an evolutionary process and certainly not a universal solution to what ails the middle east!
Expresses sorrow is all he can say ?
Seems as if he doesn't care about people dying.
Another genocide dictator in the making ?
Isn't the very violence he is complaining about what got him into the position of power that he now holds? Guess violence was ok when it was for him.
Well, it didnt take long for Quadaffi to reincarnate
Did Barack Obama write that speech for Morsy.
Oh haha you are so not funny.
Smell check isn't a compound word, rather it's two words.
People of Egypt there are no more farrows to rule you future, burn it downs
Egyptians the spirits have returned
People of Egypt you don't need another tyrant and dictator creed by the CIA
toooooooooooolaaaaaate...pack your bags mr without mercy...morsey...and leave!
For a people who talk democracy up so high you would think they live in one today. The US Democracy is now decaying into a military police state. Combine that with an economy that is a complete and utter failure with some 70 millions of people no further ahead and in most cases falling back to 1940s economic streights. THE middle class now means an inciome of 250 k and those already in that bracket are failing and falling like dominoes. Big D or little d make no difference the whole american experience in self rule failed years ago.
As warned long ago by history it is mans inability to control himself that ends up with others controlling him.
American bs of democracy by those within its borders is killing millions of people. All. Done by people they have no voice nor anychoice of but following along like marionettes on parade.
People of Egypt should burn down everything, Morsy decree is evil and he is a tyrant, he is possessed and corrupted by Americanisms
Ummm, he is a Muslim supported by the Muslim Brotherhood. Kind of opposite of Americanism.
