The Egyptian Supreme Council of the Armed Forces Under Field Marshal Tantawi: A Recipe for Revolution or More of the Same?
February 16, 2011 | Col. (ret.) Dr. Jacques Neriah
Egypt is ruled today by the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, under the leadership of Field Marshal Muhammad Hussein Tantawi. The country is now ruled under military law, something which the masses did not expect and which does not fit in with the idea of democratic reform. At 76, Tantawi is no revolutionary. He and his colleagues have a lot to lose if they accede to actual demands for change.
