    There are many kinds of military dictatorship (, and not all of them are brutal and arbitrary. The Pinochet and Franco regimes were extremely brutal and it’s debatable whether the societal gains were worth the cost. Ataturk was a former army officer who founded the Turkish Republic.
    If, despite the odds, the generals can deliver, the world can and should thank them for ousting an ineffective and destabilizing government..

    Yeah, admitting that the first goal of the new president is to increase consumers’ energy costs is gonna sell very poorly in Egypt at this time.
