Revolution in Egypt?

February 12, 2011

Hardly. Yes, Mubarak is gone but the transfer from a single person who was angling to have his son succeed him after a 30 year reign to a collective military council is hardly a revolution.

The Army is still in control and jobs/prices will change little for a long time to come. The reality is a crowd of 200,000 or so compared to a metro area of 15 million who did not care enough to show up is not a revolution.
