Work with the Army

Neo-con Charles Krauthammer's take on the Egyptian situation: Mubarak is finished (he's old), secular democratic forces in the country need to be the ones in charge, but the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood stands in the war.  ElBaradei is a wimpy liberal.  The only ones who can guide the transition to any kind of true democracy is the army.

It would be nice to feel that Krauthammer is sympathetic to the protesters, but it really feels grudging.  He's the hard-core realist: 'well, if there's got to be a revolution...."
