So, the US is the biggest benefactor of the Egyptian military. The military is the only force that can maintain Mubarak in power. The US has already announced that its aid program is under review.

Therefore, the US is in a unique position to facilitate a change in regime. Will the US cling to an old ally with no succession plan or “go with the flow” and hope that the situation does not turn into another 1979 Iran?
