Egypt On The Brink

February 10, 2011

With everything happening in Egypt these days politicians around the world are watching with great anticipation.  President Mubarak  unwillingness to give up power has spewed the violence in the streets and the world waits.

Today the Vice President took over operations according to news sources minutes ago.  The question here isn’t who is in control now, the question is who will be in control tomorrow?

There will be a revolution in Egypt I am sure. The military will play a key role in the outcome.  Will the military stand for the citizens pushing for reform or will they support the Muslim Brotherhood? That is the question no one knows at this juncture.

If the military defends Egypt and it’s citizens the revolt will be quick with few casualties. They will inform the President and Vice President their goals and then have both removed from office with little resistance hopefully.

If the military defends Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood the revolution will be deep and costly for the country.  Those who are opposed to that direction will not sit by idly and watch their Nation revert back to a dictatorship type of government.

Only when we know where the military stands can we know the direction Egypt will travel down.  WE can only hope and pray the military will back those rallying for peace and democracy. Time will be the telling factor here.
