Political scientists: A new case for you #burkina #LWILI

How often in recent memory during a coup or popular uprising or interregnum do you get two factions of the army declaring that they are in charge, but not actually fighting?  Was that what happened in Madagascar?  Hard to think of many cases like this for Africa.

If looting continues and standoff continues, deals will have to be struck.  Then a new regime starts off with the same tainted stain as previous regimes.
