Armies are dictated by rules and regulations. Now the Egyptian military needs a clever strategy to ensure it isn't forced to become the bad guy. All anti-Brotherhood Egyptians should band together behind it instead of nit-picking. The Interim President has announced a political timeline and intends appointing a council to redraft the constitution.. Naturally, Islamists object but what is truly shocking is that the Tamarod movement that started it all, has denounced this complaining Adly Mansour is taking into account Al Nour's opinions. Unless Tamarod and the opposition rallies around Al Sisi, who took a brave patriot decision, Morsi or some other Islamist ideologue will take charge again. Remember that old joke about two Jews and three opinions, that's pertinent to Egyptians nowadays and it isn't a good idea.
