It isn't at all clear they've succeeded, or will succeed.
The people they're up against are ruthless to the extreme. Remember President Sadat, and Ayman al-Zawahri bellowing abuse and defiance from the defendants' cage at their trial? Those guys are animals. Hell, they raped a female CBS reporter on-air during Cairo primetime. We still owe those fuzzy bastards a MOAB right in the middle of one of their rallies.
The Egyptians managed because they got 14 million of their citizens to march in the streets demanding change. That’s about 1/6th of their population.
The corresponding number here would be about 50 million. That will only happen in our dreams.
