(AP) Egypt's military has shown no sign of opposing the president's surprise decision to retire the defense minister and chief of staff and seize back the powers the military grabbed from his office.


Nearly a full day after the order, no unusual military movements were reported anywhere across the nation.


President Mohammed Morsi's shake-up of the military took the nation by surprise. It has transformed his image overnight from a weak leader to a savvy politician who carefully timed his move against generals who stripped him of significant powers days before he took office on June 30.


The military appears to have acquiesced to Morsi's bold decisions. The official news agency quoted an unnamed military official late Sunday as saying there has been no "negative reaction" from within the military.
