From one of Egypt's brightest political analysts and diplomats, here is finally an objective analysis of Egypt at the crossroads. What is the power balance between the Military Counsel, the Islamists, the revolutionaries and the cronies of the old regime? Why is each of them behaving in a seemingly incomprehensible way? What possible alliances could be possible? When is the next clash and between whom? An analysis that shows both the potential and limitations that will determine Egypt's future.
