Egypt’s military and the Arab Spring

Andrew McCarthy writes – as he has been saying for years – that things in Egypt are bad and are going to get much worse.

From National Review Online:

It is delusional to assume the Egyptian military is pro-American and thus a reliable bulwark against the advance of Islamic supremacism. Cairo’s armed forces reflect the broader society, whose able-bodied men are required to serve — and, as even the Times now concedes, the Egyptian mainstream is Islamist. Plus, the Egyptian army has always had Islamists (including violent jihadists) in its ranks.
