Egypt’s Systemic Collapse

The crisis in Port Said has exposed deep problems in Egypt's political system.

The Egyptian flag

Last August, following the attack in Rafah in which 16 Egyptian soldiers were killed, Morsi dismissed the minister of defense, Tantawi, and a long list of senior military officers. The question was then raised: Why did Tantawi and the officers agree to be dismissed without objection? The answer was clear back then, and it is even clearer today: Since they knew what the actual economic situation in Egypt was, they were glad to hand the country over to Morsi, so that he would be associated with the collapse and not them. They were like rats fleeing a sinking ship.

Hopefully, the Egyptian people will find a way out of the complex crisis in which it finds itself, and that a group of leaders will emerge who will lead the rickety Egyptian ship to safe shores.
