#1 I was just talking to a young Egyptian couple who were listening to the news, live. They are very happy that the military is standing up for the "people".

#2 Given how low all other agents of government have fallen here, wonder how long before that thought will be starting to catch on here.

Why, there was a crown offered him: and being offered him, he put it by with the back of his hand, thus; and then the people fell a-shouting.


What was the second noise for?


Why, for that too.


They shouted thrice: what was the last cry for?


Why, for that too.


Was the crown offered him thrice?


Ay, marry, was't, and he put it by thrice, every time gentler than other, and at every putting-by mine honest neighbours shouted.

#6 Sadat came from the military IIRC. He didn't do too bad.

I think a benevolent dictator is the most the Egyptians can hope for and IMNSHO they really want one. That whole society (can I say MOST Muslim societies?) want the big daddy figure of a Caliph or Emir to take care of them.

Population as the children of the family seem to be there preferred default position.

#8 As per CNN + FOX NEWS this Guam AM, the MusBros have rejected the Military's ultimatum.

That sound you're hearing is Israel going "OH CRAP"!

POTUS Obama can't ignore this one because of same + Egypt's Oil [also read, OPEC] + Suez Canal. HIS NON-MILITARY OPTIONS IN THE MIDDLE EAST, NORTH AFRICA OR AFRICA, + EAST ASIA ARE GETTING STEADILY LESSOR + LESSOR.
