No Revolution in Egypt

John Judis, a really good writer and analyst of things political, has a very thoughtful (and depressing)article in the New Republic, in which he basically says that a revolution has not occurred in Egypt yet.  That is because the army has basically controlled the state and society since the overthrow of Nassar many years, and it still controls the state since the resignation of Mubarak.  And he say that there isn't much reason for the army to give up power, without a whole lot of pressure from the US, which he doesn't expect.

Kind of bums me out (to quote Dan Ackroyd).
