US and European commentators have been wrong about Middle East since 1979. ... I wonder who rules Egypt now. Any predictions about Syria?

It is not surprising that Tantawi left and i think that he is a coward and he had no guts to face the real legal issues and possible prosecution for the crimes committed by SCAF and it was not Morsi that did it (Morsi is a cluelss person who is busy reading the book of Allah and praying to even notice what is going on in his backyard). It was he, Tantawi, that realized that he must go.

Tantawi had to abandon ruling Egypt because he knew very well that with all the crimes committed against the protestors in Egypt and more so as in the case of the massacre at Maspero that his only way out from possible prosecution is that he leaves and he had to have a deal with al-ikhwan that he will not be, or any of his thugs, prosecuted.

And i bet you an Egyptian pound that this is indeed what happened. You see the task of closing the NGO's was an easy task as he believed that these NGO's were building a legal case against him and SCAF and it worked but he realized that nothing was solved and that possible prosecution is still there

But you know what? al-ikhwan will not do a thing about all these crimes because they are clueless and un-democratic and have no clue about the rule of law

and if action is to be taken against Tantawi and his gang then it would be through the international court at the Hague and I hope he knows that very well

As for Syria you are comparing apples and oranges as you never know what desperate leaders can do so stay tuned
