COMPELLING VIEW: Two years ago the combined force of the crowds in Cairo’s Tahrir Square and Egypt’s generals ousted Hosni Mubarak as president. This weekend the crowds were back again, this time railing against his elected successor Mohammed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Egyptian economy is falling apart, and the army chief who is also defense minister is on record gas warned of the potential collapse of the state. AIIA NSW president Colin Chapman talks to Reva Bhalla, a Middle East expert and vice president of global analysis at Stratfor on Egypt’s grim prospects.
