    “Time is probably on the military’s side.”

    I think not. If the Muslim Brotherhood is like other Islamist organisations, it has far greater staying power and takes a far longer perspective on its agenda than does a secular organistion like the Egyptian military. But, perhaps just as important, the military is made up of conscripts, vast numbers of which will either support the MB themselves or whose family members do.

    The battle is lost in Egypt. It was lost when Obama and the Egyptian military toppled Mubarak. It is now just a matter of time before their power completely slips away.
