The upper military may have realized that mid level officers and rank and file soldiers would not shoot on the demonstrators.

What are the chances that the same kind of Internet/social network savvy the opposition used to coordinate Mubarak's ouster will be used by whoever ends up in power in Egypt will use the same means to become entrenched & oppress the people? And that that situation will last until the next generation--both of technology & of people who know how to use it to oust *them*?

Could you please address the fact that there has always been a military man in charge of Egypt since the deposition of the King.
