Tunisia is under military control, Egypt is under military control – Is this freedom???

Apparently there have been successful revolutions in Tunisia & Egypt and people are in power. What I see is nothing but the continuation of military rule in both these countries. What actually has happened is not people in power but the ruling elites replacing the top figure with military junta but keeping the old regimes alive. Hosni Mubarak & Ben Ali have been replaced by General Tantawi & General Amaar respectively. Both have been part of the power structure in their countries for ages and have been part of the problem rather than solution. How a replacement of a unelected despote with another unelected military man can be classed as regime change is beyond me.  I leave it you to decide if this is democracy & revolution?
