Although I've given no indication of this on my blog, since January 28 I've focused considerable attention on the Egyptian protests. My interest heightened even more when I noted what I considered to be instructive parallels between Egypt's situation and Pakistan's.
I wrote an initial analysis of the Egyptian situation on January 31 but shelved it while I dug deeper into the background to the protests. By yesterday I'd collected enough pieces of the puzzle to develop an analysis that I thought would hold up, no matter how much additional data came to light. However, I want to squeeze in enough time today to review the writing once more before I post it to this blog, which I estimate will be between 2 and 4 PM Eastern time.
Regards to all,
