Here We Go: Egypt’s Civilian Cabinet Resigns

I’m pretty protestors want the military rulers to resign and may be ambivalent towards the civilian Cabinet.

Here we go.

The military-civilian crony capitalism regime of Egypt didn’t go away when Mubarak resigned. If these protests move to seek removal of military rule itself, then it is truly demanding a new power structure in Egypt, and it makes sense that the generals are less willing to toss themselves out then they were for tossing Mubarak.

UPDATE: Damnit I just crossed into the usual speculative punditry. I suck.
