"Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!"

And anyone expected anything different?

BTW...wasn't Mubarak (former head of the Air Force, IIRC) vice-president to Sadat (former head of the Army, IIRC)?

We just need would be an Admiral and all would be done.

Those of us who were expecting the army to step in and cut out both the liberal reformers and the MB are left saying 'Yep'.

Oh wait - I forgot one. Mubarak's VP was head of the intelligence services. After him, then the Admiral.

The Army will squish the drama-bound, the Intelligence will deal with those who would prefer not to be photographed.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

They can get an Admiral from the Swiss, as if they need one.

1. Army in charge
2. No legislature
3. No constitution

Ah, Democracy!

I think they should bring back the Pharaohs, complete with the part where they have to marry their sisters. They can start the new line of succession with transplants from Arkansas.
