The problem is that those Egyptian generals aren’t there anymore: they’re either not in the land of the living or not in the Egyptian army - or have bowed down and are complicit with the new Islamist regime because they want to keep their jobs and their lives.
The Islamists got rid of secularist generals right off the bat. Barely reported by our press, of course.
Yes, that was foreseeable, too. The same thing happened earlier to the Generals in Egypt, after they incautiously allowed a Muslim fanatic to become Prime Minister instead of stepping in and removing him, as they had always done before. So, Turkey changed from our ally to our enemy.
