This -- the Fox News alert fireworks in Cairo tonight.
Hundreds of thousands of egyptians are celebrating in the streets -- Egypt's military oust president Mohamed Morsi.
And president Morsi denouncing the military -- and his supporters also taking to the streets.
Fox's correspondent hotter -- is live in Cairo with the latest take Connor.
Did you while the sun is beginning to come up quite a new day here in the -- and the party is still going on behind me -- -- -- -- -- endless amounts of fireworks and laser says today's celebration for the last.
I was twelve hour episodes -- -- -- very impressive site but outside of careers where a lot going on in this country right now that isn't.
Celebration now we are hearing reports.
That the Egyptian military is clashing -- most members of the Muslim Brotherhood in different parts around the country at least five people being killed.
We are also hearing reports that several senior members of the Muslim Brotherhood have been arrested.
And if there are warrants were literally hundreds more of -- members of the Muslim Brotherhood.
President Mohamed -- we believe right now is under house arrest right now being detained by the military he has denounce this military do.
But -- they wiley celebrated across much of Egypt right now.
Particularly by the secular egyptians the Christians and either.
Some of Muslim leaders who were simply.
Not happy with the performance of Mohamed -- in the Muslim Brotherhood in terms of running this country the economy has been struggling basic services.
We're really nonexistent here if there was a lot of anger at the Muslim Brotherhood and at president Morrissey.
A lot of celebration right now but there is a looming fear of anger here over this country also the fear of how about violence going forward right now -- there -- these stronghold Muslim Brotherhood.
Population in this country somewhere about 13 of the -- the country really does support the Muslim Brotherhood they are not going to just simply.
Sit down and wait for the next elections that are supposed to be held.
Sometime in the near future.
They are threatening to put -- to give their lives to defend behind -- -- he had to defend Islam and to defend the Muslim Brotherhood.
The fear of violence here really does loom over all of Egypt -- here.
-- quick answer on this how likely do you think it is that the Muslim Brotherhood ends up back in power.
Well listen there's still the dominant figure that -- group here in Egypt the opposition is really get it.
Holding rallies and protests and I guess getting rid of leaders they don't like.
But they've shown no ability to organize it that election campaign level and and so the Muslim brotherhood of their client could probably still field a very strong roster of candidates and could still win a lot of seats in parliament possibly even the president.
If the opposition doesn't get their act together.
But I have a feeling though the military opposition are not gonna allow -- system to be.
Set up where the Muslim Brotherhood and simply just win the parliament can win the presidency.
This really was planned and well organized by the military with the help of the opposition here the last sort of 72 maybe.
Five or six days here.
In dieting Cairo there really is a sensitive military the top -- got together to oust president -- it's comfortably they're just gonna allow the Muslim Brotherhood to come back.
You can't discount the Muslim Brotherhood is very strong here in Egypt in this.
Yes it is -- something told -- -- fireworks would be short lived and they show our thanks so much and please be safe.
All right -- is the largest of all of the Arab countries the ouster of its first democratically elected president what impact the entire region and Israel.
So what is the United States' stake in all of this and what President Obama be doing.
Former US ambassador John Bolton joins me now ambassador Bolton.
This looks a lot like 2011.
We saw protesters in the streets of Cairo hockey Mubarak stepped down.
Are we just replacing Mubarak -- Mubarak.
And it -- what.
Are we do only.
Well you know -- Mubarak earlier today called for the ouster of Mohamed -- so you can bet Mubarak celebrating tonight to.
Is the fact is that that the Muslim Brotherhood had taken its election victory and was using it.
To follow the principle one person one vote one time they wanted to establish an -- -- -- state under Sharia law.
You know you don't get the vote on what God's will is when somebody already knows what God's will was so I think they were moving in the direction of authoritarian.
Society and I think the military was justified in staging this -- now having said that.
Nobody should underestimate the strength of the brotherhood in the parliamentary elections.
That international observers said were free and fair and the brotherhood candidates got close to 50% of the seats.
And even more radical candidates took the islamists -- majority in parliament.
The somewhere between two thirds and three quarters this is a very strong feeling in Egypt.
They will now say you know you people told us we had to have elections we had elections we won and then stage a military coup.
So the prospect for continued conflict violent conflict and bloodshed I think remains high -- -- durable -- the president put out a statement earlier saying that the United States doesn't back political parties it doesn't back individuals but it backs the democratic process.
But it seems like ambassador -- we do -- parties and individuals pro Sharia pro Islamic ones like the Muslim Brotherhood so.
Why we back then that democratic movement and -- ran in 2009.
If that's what the United States' status.
-- because the president's policy is confused and that statement that he issued today was my share that and then even his usual statements.
Look we had mishandled the situation in Egypt for the last two and a half years I don't think the president knows really where he stands or what he wants to do.
The anti Morsi demonstrators for the past several days have.
Criticize the Obama administration for standing with the Muslim Brotherhood which most Americans would find.
I think we shouldn't overstate our influence I do think we've got influence with the military through years of providing extensive assistance and I hope that that was understood by the military and I think yeah although it.
Overturns an elected president.
Really it is in America's interest to see the military.
Try again to put Egypt on the road to represented -- government.
I think you're absolutely right I will say though I do you think it looks really bad for the United States that we back the wrong course.
Ambassador thanks so much.
