Melhem and Cook on Egypt

There's a big historical post coming later this evening. Meanwhile, I wanted to call your attention to two excellent posts on Egypt. My old friend Hisham Melhem, Washington Bureau Chief of Al Arabiya, has a perceptive and eloquent piece called "Whatever is the Matter with Egypt?"  Another perceptive Egypt-watcher, Steven A. Cook at the Council on Foreign Relations has responded with a (somewhat) dissenting post at the From the Potomac to the Euphrates blog, "Whatever is the Matter with Egypt? Nothing All That New." 

Both are well worth a read.
