Doesn't change the fact that all the actual powers are on the SCAF's hands...

Chickened out of a fullscale coup? Or just wanted to get some controls into place before confirming Morsi's victory? Or something entirely unsinister? We may find out yet, or we may never know...

If I'm shown as having been active here recently it's either because I've been using the gallery, because I've been using the search engine looking up something from way back, or because I've been reading the most excellent UK by-elections thread again.

The people of Egypt had spoken and their choice must be respected by the rest of the world.

I really hope my scepticism toward Mursi will be disproven. I really hope.

Again, it's not like he has any effective power under the current institutions. The SCAF can do more or less what it wants by now.

If they did a full scale coup, there'd be blood on the streets.  The important thing from SCAF's point of view is that they're going to control the drafting of the constitution, which means that they'll carve out whatever power they want for themselves.  So there'll be a constitution, there'll be more elections, and a new Parliament, but it'll be on SCAF's terms.
