Mokhtar El Ashry, who heads the Brotherhood's legal committee said, "It is a coup. They are not playing legally. It might take pressure from the streets." [6]

That last sentence by Ashry may be the only tactic left for the Egyptian people to take. Protests in Tehrir Square in Cairo worked in February 2011 as the people took to the streets and brought down Hosni Mubarak as the Egyptian military at the time refused to fire on the Egyptian people protesting, backed the rebellion and ended with Mubarak stepping down.

This time it will be military rulers themselves needing to be overthrown; an all together different prospect.
