In Egypt, fuel shortages and police incompetence have inconvenienced residents throughout Mr. Morsi's one year rule. Suddenly though, since the coup that toppled President Morsi last week, fuel shortages have virtually disappeared. The power grid has a surplus, and people don't have to wait for gas. In addition, the full police force is now active. Because all of this happened so suddenly, many people think that the "deep state"--the bureaucracy that Hosni Mubarak built, has been conspiring against Mr. Morsi throughout his presidency. Whether intentional or unintentional, it certainly is strange and improbable that things have turned around almost overnight.
