On the Egyptin Military and the Protests

Following up on my post of yesterday, here's a useful assessment from Al-Masry Al-Youm English.

On the day after a blogger was convicted for "lying" about the military, it's a sign of the new climate of confidence that a major independent newspaper can venture to write openly about growing rifts.
