Egypt was a military coup in the sense that all revolutions are military coups; they just seem to have skipped the civil war stage, is all. It’s also stretching the definition of military coup just the tiniest bit to apply the term to an authoritarian regime ran by ex-generals, as if democratic elections were the preferred choice. Laughable.
