Comment: Egyptian masses control the outcome.

(See in situ)

Egyptian masses control the outcome.

He who supplies Egypt's military with money, arms, and directions, controls their engagements. That is generally true, however, there comes a time when money no longer controls -- and that's when 20 million souls materialize in the streets. President Obama, by omitting the 'coup' label, reflects not only contemptuous disregard for elected leaders (sort of like the Bolivian hijack too), also concern that Egypt's military may start thinking for itself. This is post 21 December 2012, after all.
