NY Times has published this report by Thanassis Cambanis about our army and the battle of succession in Egypt ,specifically about Gamal Mubarak which you must read.
One must ask : How did the NY Times know about that open letter circulated between the retired officers criticizing Gamal Mubarak’s candidacy last month ?? I really want to put my hand on it.
There is no doubt that as Egyptians in the beginning and in the end many army officers whether in service or retirement refuse Gamal Mubarak’s candidacy not because they are bloody military who want to continue ruling the country instead of leaving it to the businessmen , they are Egyptians who see and share our crises and failures as the rest of the world and want change for better like the rest of us but call it a curse and a bless at the same time : They are military ; they actually can but do not know when and how.
