Delusion of Freedom in Egypt

Thousands of people are celebrating freedom in the streets of Egypt. They are living in the delusion that the events in Egypt unfolded the way they did because their dictator was afraid of unarmed civilians screaming in the streets. Egypt unfolded the way it did because the Military wanted to take control of the country. The protesters were a convenient tool. When Mubarak looked out his window, he looked over the heads of  the protesters to the military standing behind them.  The Egyptian military has pulled off one of the most cleaver takeovers in modern history and managed to come out looking like champions of democracy.
