Did the Egyptian army show its true colors this time?

Army in Egypt protest crackdownProtester shows blood and suspected bullet cartridges in Tahrir Square, 9 April

Sometimes anything I think, say or write about the Middle East is like beating a dead horse; it has all been thought, said and written before – often. So today rather than trying to analyze things I do not understand, I only have a question – as much for myself as anyone else.  The Egyptian army charged a 100,000 protesters in Tahrir Square and killed at least 3 people.  Just what is the difference between Egypt and the other Arab countries where the government is using force to control crowds, opposition and protests?
