#Jan25...An attempt for a Bird's eye View





 
It was the 11
th of Feb. when Mubarak reign has dramatically ended, and the SCAF "supreme council of Armed forces" Came in total control. This was the only way out for Egyptians. We mustn't forget that since the 3rd of Feb. we were pushing hard waiting for the SCAF final touch. Haven't been for them no one could imagine how would have it been like!


Yet, we must understand that SCAF isn't a revolutionary organization. It didn't call for it. Its head was the minister of defense for almost 2 decades. It must look ugly from inside as the table suddenly is turned upside down. 1 must understand how crucial it is for the SCAF's head and vise to give a testimonial under Oath.


Secondly, we all know Egyptian Army receives annual military Aid of 1.3 billion dollars, 1/3 of this aid goes to maintenance and spare parts purchases. So this Aid is not something to joke about. So ignoring that SCAF is under a great pressure from the States – the greatest threat to the democratic transition – is such a lunatic act.


Thirdly, the combat doctrine of Egyptian Army is still the same, regardless to the American attempts to change it to "anti-terrorism", Instead of fighting a traditional army over an open landscape and stop its aggression. So as simple as that, Israel is the Enemy. When the incident of the Israeli assault on the Egyptian border occurred, the mass rage of Egyptians people was ignited. But SCAF maneuvering is limited by many variables, its own interest, American pressure , supposedly the interest of the country and finally the fear of showing Israel any act of enmity while playing politics.


It failed to take necessary steps to handle such a crisis. The SCAF conservativeness is well manifested in the Gas deal, despite the court decision and massive anger of the people, it refused to take any administrative actions, most probably waiting for the new elected authority to coach such a fight.


So if we consider all the mentioned factors. The game of the people must not be to corner the wild cat to the wall; sometimes an eye for an eye leaves every 1 blind as martin Luther king said. Limiting the SCAF options at such time, few weeks pre elections will turn ugly to everyone. The only strategy appealing to me is to push all the way for the protection of coming elections being held on time, not to go for social justice protests, no anti-military trails marches which are not fully functioning but it is back firing. The only escape road is a legitimate elected house that shall grasp the legislation authority from SCAF, disapprove any military trails and start working or transforming people hopes from the Famous Chant "the people Demand……. " Into comprehensive legislation and a strong government.


It is as a defender meeting a striker running with maximum speed, if the defender blocked him face to face either they fall down together, or the striker has 2 chances to dribble the defender to left or right. The only proven right technique, is to open up a well-chosen lane for the striker to take, then tackle him taking the ball !
