For the last week the name of Field Marshall Mohamed Hussein Tantawi Soliman has been coming up as a possible candidate for the Egyptian Presidence. As it is almost 8 o'clock in the evening in Cairo and President Mubarik has not addressed his people one wonders who will be the head of the government in the morning. Field Marshall Tantawi, veterian of the 1973 Yom Kippur War as well as the1991 Gulf War or the current Vice President Omar Suleman Chief of Egyptian General Intelligence Service and also a veteran of the 1973 conflict.
Field Marshall Tantawi is well known by the US military and may be the Egyptian Army's candidate. This is a man that the world may be hearing more about.
