    Maybe even be gone within 24 hours. I think if you see a nation wide strike, millions on the street his position becomes untenable and there'll be a coup and a transitional military regime in place.

    •  Yes. Also, don't underestimate the U.S. (1+ / 0-)

      I agree that the Egyptian civil war has a life of its own and the U.S is irrelevant to  the action on the streets.  However, the U.S. is still the big dog in the Middle East and has considerable power no matter how this goes down in Cairo.  The protestors are in a strong position but the U.S. has powerful leverage.   We are not irrelevant in the outcome of this movement.... Fareed Zacara, btw, agrees with this assessment.
