Whether this turns out to be a 'changing of the old guard' with little alteration in real politics on the ground in Egypt, a rare and possibly unsustainable move toward democracy and away from the Islamic theocratic model, or something that allows the Muslim Brothers to seize control of the country remains to be seen.

I suspect that it will be the first and not the last.

LL, I'm hoping that you've read it correctly. You are my go-to guy for international political machinations.

Egypt hasn't had a real democracy in its history of XXXX thousand years. Why start now?

As long as the military plays such a major role in Egyptian politics, I imagine the revolution will be nothing more than a re-arrangement of the deck chairs, ala Turkey. It still boils down to guns and guys with helmets.
