Outcome of 'change' in Egypt far from certain

Given Egypt' s internal conditions and its external environment where competing forces strive, overtly or covertly, to influence the political direction and destination of the 'change', it is fairly naive to conclude right now that there is only one outcome in the post -Mubarak period, whether the 'strongman leaves now or after an election in September. The political sentiment of Egypt's population in the rural areas is still not that clear in the otherwise very detailed world news reports which focus on urban centers , such as Cairo, Alexandria, Suez or Port Said.
