GOOD HABITS ARE HARD TO BREAK

Reader comment on item: Fixing Egypt's Economy: No More Military Macaroni

Submitted by JACQUES HADIDA (United States), Jul 31, 2013 at 14:04

Indeed, the military has been running the show for a long time and all its members got used to the privilege of getting all the benefits.

To come tomorrow and tell them to stop is depriving them of what they feel is owed to them, for yes, they have been loyal.

Common sense is that sensitive commodity that must be nicely presented to the crowds, starting with military. People need to understand that sacrifices are necessary for the betterment of everyone's life.

And maybe starting with the higher ups giving up some of their advantages, that should be the example to show the rest how to behave.

Egypt can survive its economic crisis if it realizes it has a major one and decides it needs to act
