From the article I read, the uprisings in the port towns are not being suppressed by the military because they know they are between a rock and a hard place, that is, if Egypt is really a democracy then these people have a right to voice their opinion. They don't have a right to just randomly destroy stuff, but they do have a right to say "hey, this sucks and we aren't benefitting from 'democracy!'". I think these military leaders see the situation for what it is, a bunch of BS.

JMHO of course.
I agree, but I do not think the Leader really cares about protests unless they are destructive. I just hope the military steps in and ousts the leaders. The military is still quite respected by the people.

Thought this was an interesting article from the former manager of Tinariwen

For anyone that hasn't heard, it's great stuff.
