As ever, Shakespeare puts it perfectly:   

What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.   

What has happened in Egypt is, frankly, a coup d’état. The army has overthrown the elected government and arrested the president and the leaders of what was the governing party, the Muslim Brotherhood. Yet the US administration has so far studiously avoided designating recent events as a military coup, and the UK has been equally bashful.
