Just a week ago talking heads talked about a "chinese solution" in Egypt. Myself, I do not think it can be known either way until it happens.

A factor is that if the soldiers on the ground believe the demonstrators will win, they have all the reason to join them. And with Egypt falling, more probably believes that their strong-man will fall.

well, a lot of it depends on whether if they have general conscription or not, I would think.

and I have been saying for some time now that India and China are in line for some major unrest due to the inequality of incomes and other pressures on the poor -  bad environmental conditions, poor representation, problems with land distribution and use.
