Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Remember how excited US American innerboob spectators were by 'Arab Spring' in Egypt? Many a petty landlord inexplicably defended the army (for teh peoplw, against Mubarak) and rejoiced when Field Marshall Tantawi condemned Mubarak, then deposed 'democratically-elected' Morsi in order to install Oxford-educated supreme commander-in-chief of the armed forces, el SiSi, who has proved to be a fine successor to Mubarak.

UK, too, could look forward to this power-vacuum kit but for the ceremonial status of its armed forces.
