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..

The recent UN vote will increase their confidence. And once Iran gets the bomb, their confidence will be infinite.

There is no opposition now in the army. There was little to none even before Morsi was elected, or else the Muslim Brotherhood would have not gotten anywhere in the election.

But the Muslim Brotherhood is a HUGE organization. It's a pan-islamic organization, established as a secret society with a paramilitary arm, born in 1928. I just wrote a post about it here.

The MB has been building factions in Egypt -- and over the globe -- for generations. It is not going anywhere and has probably infiltrated the Army. Morsi is purging the Generals that have not sweat allegiance to the MB.

Allende is right. It will become an Islamic Republic.

In fact the regime of the ayatollahs in Iran grew out of a secret society called the Devotees of Islam (فدائیان اسلام), a Muslim Brotherhood affiliate whose founder and leader in the 1950s, Sayyid Navab Safavi, was a close associate of Ruhollah Mostafavi Musavi Khomeini.

Navab Safavi founded the Devotees of Islam in 1946.
