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.
