A Military Coup or Not? - Egypt

The main question surrounding the resignation of Hosni Mubarak will be the that the role that the military has played given the significance of the meeting of the Supreme Council of Armed Forces which took place yesterday (see previous post).

Also what is significant is that the communique that was released yesterday after the meeting coined "communique number 1" - this, commentators were saying was possible the first document of the new Egyptian regime. Now in the light of hindsight it would appear that this document was the 'first document of the new regime' in Egypt from the armed forces who appear now to be in control of the country.
