But he does control them. Forgot about him firing the generals that opposed him and replacing them with generals loyal to the Muslim Brotherhood?
Unlike Iran he does not control an armed revolutionary force to compete with and ultimately dominate the army. The Egyptian army is still a very powerful force that Morsi does not now control
Very much doubt he has full control after firing some generals. He still has layers of generals, colonels, majors and even junior officers that he needs to purge to really control the army. That purge will come and largely go unnoticed by the Western media. However the big danger here is if Morsi patiently consolidates power and takes a page out of Nasser’s book. Remember “The United Arab Republic”. A secular/socialist inspired political union of Egypt, Syria and Libya that eventually crumbled. When the dust settles from the “Arab Spring”, it will become evident that the Islamist parties will dominate in all three countries. What could the West do if there were plebiscites in those countries forming a new “United Islamic Republic” were formed? It would be populous and have the oil money to establish a political model very similar to Iran. Such a union would do little to alleviate the backwardness and poverty of the masses,would probably eventually fall apart but it could be a dangerous entity in a very unstable area and give the Arabs confidence to again war with Israel..
