"Widespread politically-motivated unrest was not likely because it was not part of the ’Egyptian mentality’. Threats to daily survival, not politics, were the only thing to bring Egyptians to the streets en masse."
“The price of freedom is the willingness to do sudden battle anywhere, any time and with utter recklessness.”
