Arseholes think strategy, professionals think tactics
With respect to the "arseholes theory of authoritarian governance", see the detailed guide to arraying your troops and arseholes. Jamies point about control of the streets is very well made - people are coming up with all sorts of theories about why the Egyptian troops didn't use violence to drive the protestors away, but these don't seem to be generalising to Yemen or Bahrain, whereas the simple explanation (that they didn't because they couldn't) does.
