...And leave Mubarak's stooge the VP in charge so that they can control the upcoming "elections"

Totally unacceptable if real change is to be had.
 Quoting: Droid

Bingo we have a winner.
 Quoting: snark

Yeah, and it's totally obvious to everyone in Egypt, which is why nobody Mubarak appoints is considered legitimate as an option.

This charade of Mubarak's new government acting like they have legitimacy in the face of the people is so Baghdad Bob.
 Quoting: Droid


Baghdad Bob was good for some laughs. Will never be another Baghdad Bob.


 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1211168

He was great. "There are no American forces near Baghdad! We have slaughtered the tank columns outside of Baghdad. They were slaughtered like pigs..." Meanwhile 300 Abrams tanks driving by in the background heading to Saddam's palace with impunity...

 Quoting: Droid



Sillyman just told Amanpoor on Nightline that he would NOT run for pres..feels he is too old at 74

So he would be interim pres until election
 Quoting: sweetpea

He and his henchmen would still control the elections and produce a sham result, leaving the door open for Mubarak JR to take over as new dictator.
 Quoting: Droid



perhaps..I do not believe Mubarak Jr would be acceptable to the peeps either.

I believe the young people and the professional people of Egypt have someone in mind to run for Pres.

Babsi has said that they have kept this underwraps.
I posted an article on the brutality of this regime on the prev page I believe, which explains why there seems to be no opposition OUT THERE right now.

As Egypt crisis mounts, Obama to face questions on path forward

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will confront questions on seething violence in Egypt on what may be a pivotal day in the crisis, as anti-government demonstrators aim to escalate their surging street protests in face of a broadening crackdown.

As the White House looks frantically for ways to lessen the violence and ease President Hosni Mubarak more quickly out the door, Obama was expected to take questions from reporters Friday for the first time since the crisis began, in a joint appearance at the White House with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

Obama and members of his administration are edging closer to blaming Mubarak's government for the violent clashes of the past two days. They have avoided asking him to resign immediately, as the protesters want, but they have made clear repeatedly that they are not satisfied with his announcement that he will not seek re-election in September after a 30-year-reign.

Reporters Without Borders is horrified by what appears to be an all-out witch-hunt against news media that are covering events in Egypt and is very concerned for all the journalists currently in Cairo, especially on the eve of a major demonstration planned by President Hosni Mubarak’s opponents for tomorrow, which they are describing as the deadline for his departure.

“Theft, violence, arbitrary arrests and extreme violence… the list of abuses against journalists by President Mubarak’s supporters is getting longer by the hour and they are clearly systematic and concerted,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Jean-François Julliard said.

The Arab revolution and Western decline

There are no excuses for the contradictions. How can it be that Bush's America understood the problem of repression in the Arab world, but Obama's America ignored it until last week? How can it be that in May 2009, Hosni Mubarak was an esteemed president whom Barack Obama respected, and in January 2011, Mubarak is a dictator whom even Obama is casting aside? How can it be that in June 2009, Obama didn't support the masses who came out against the zealot Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, while now he stands by the masses who are coming out against the moderate Mubarak?

There is one answer: The West's position is not a moral one that reflects a real commitment to human rights. The West's position reflects the adoption of Jimmy Carter's worldview: kowtowing to benighted, strong tyrants while abandoning moderate, weak ones.

Carter's betrayal of the Shah brought us the ayatollahs, and will soon bring us ayatollahs with nuclear arms. The consequences of the West's betrayal of Mubarak will be no less severe. It's not only a betrayal of a leader who was loyal to the West, served stability and encouraged moderation. It's a betrayal of every ally of the West in the Middle East and the developing world. The message is sharp and clear: The West's word is no word at all; an alliance with the West is not an alliance. The West has lost it. The West has stopped being a leading and stabilizing force around the world.

They're gonna have to take a detour from the MLK/Ghandi method if they want freedom. They're dealing with an emotionless, brutal dictator who kills his own citizens, and then claims he had nothing to do with it on TV the next day.

After seeing that car run over 20 people peacefully gathering in the street, I realized something:

The people will endure a mass slaughter soon. The ones that remain will become RADICAL and start the revolution for real.
