The Algerian military has lost its capability to maintain a reasonable level of objectivity. Its senior command, directed by General Gaid Salah, is now in intense panic mode after it failed to abort the ongoing anti-government protests.  Such panic mode translates into an extremely dangerous situation that risks not only to destroy the Algerian Republic, but it could turn the Algerian territory into another focal point for outside forces, from the likes of the UAE to the Jihadists, where they would wage another of their proxy wars. And we now have the Libyan template as a clear indication of what can happen should Gaid Salah and his Generals continue on this road.
