ROTFLMAO! Since when did Egypt's military ever do that? Their Supreme Court are military stooges, nothing less.

I'm actually with their new President here. He has to assert himself now, or remain a figurehead. Of course he risks a coup, but that's evidently a risk he's prepared to take.

Defy the military, seat the DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED parliament, and challenge the uniformed goons.

Who does the military actually answer to if not the democratically elected President ?
Does the constitution mention anything about a military controlled government ?

AFAIK, the military answers to NO ONE. I do not know how their role is defined in the Constitution, but in practice they make or break any potential Egyptian government.

In America, that's true. The President commands the military, and they obey him, like him or not.

Not true in Egypt, of course. Watch what happens the first time he orders them to do something. LOL!

As to their finances, I understand they own a LOT of Egypt's business and infrastructure, and bring in plenty of money themselves. I don't know who or what they swear allegiance to, do you?

They then are a business in their own right with their own miltary protection paid for by the country.
It would be interesting to understand what they own and the departure of the previous President may have businesss reasons attached seeing he was one of them.
Why would they toss one of their own elite to the wolves ?
