not working

"This is a preparation for eliminating the Brotherhood," said Emad Shahin, a political science professor at the American University in Cairo.
Isn't that what the Mubarak regime tried and failed to do?

I don't think "eliminating the Brotherhood" is in the cards, which means the generals are going to have to find a way to live with them. Why aren't they getting that?
