Morsi Cuts Off Ties With Syria

Things are starting to get real between Egypt and Syria. Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi announced at a rally on Saturday that his country is cutting diplomatic ties with Syria and will close the Syrian Embassy in Cairo in protest of President Bashar al-Assad's brutal regime. Morsi even went so far as to ask the international community to implement a no-fly zone over the embattled country. He also called on Hezbollah to retreat from Syria, where it has been fighting on the side of Assad and his government forces, saying "there is no space or place for Hezbollah in Syria."
