Do not understand why people are celebrating this, he will be replaced by the Israel/US/UK lap dog and the people of Egypt will soon be under a similar rule that drives us to sign up to this site. Only worse.

This is how the World Wars started - Governments handed over to their military. Just saying. Congrats on Mubarak but I hope they have had a history lesson. They say they trust the military and thats whats really scary.

What is so great about having an 82-year old, waiting-to-die man "step down", and having a former head of Secret Police CIA/Mossad puppet take his place?

For freedom and democracy? Is this a complete joke or what? Yes, yes.. the powerful people of Egypt removed a dictator who had one foot in the grave to begin with. Power to the people..... (and the Secret Police, and martial law army and all that... )


Yay.. ?

Such people were spit on by the crowds. Having known Egyptian people whom left when they had enough of their government, they will not have sharia law. And where the fook does socialism even come in?

Do try to keep your ignorance levels bellow 9000. You fail to recall the British educated these people when they were a colony and that Egypt has long been, along with Turkey, one of the more modernized states.

Lets be smart here, the military did not really interviene in trying to stop the protestors, if they had it would have been a blood bath. This I would wager is not the norm for future protests in the middle east, just look no further than the Iran protests during the last election. The military is in control and in my opinion was a plan to oust him...we will see which way the country moves, my gut tells me LESS FREEDOM...

again my opinion...

I hate to have to agree with your perspective but I for some reason see Iran behind some of this and definitely behind The Muslim Brotherhood...

again my opinion...grass is not always greener on the other side...

From many things I've read and interviews I've seen the Muslim Brotherhood and Iran do not get along at all. Although the MSM would like you to think all Muslims are in Kahoots with eachother.

There ya go, Martial Law. At least the heads of the USSA should be happy with that.
They could pickup some pointers for the next up and coming event.


Actually, martial law has been in place since the assassination of Sadat, prior to leaving office Mubarak lifted it as a last ditch effort to gain support (as that was one the grievances). I have not heard that the military has officially reenacted it, actually at this point I'm a little fuzzy on what the current the laws are being as they're scrapping the entire system. However, considering how they behaved during the past three weeks I have every confidence that they will get through this period just fine.

Ofcourse they would never get on, as one is a salafi/wahabi and the other is a shia. But they share the same enemies and are most likely to be united in that sense.

To ensure the security of the Suez Canal is the main reason. Secondary reasoning would I suppose be the event the person/group doesn't honor the treaty with Israel, but the canal in number one.

Saudi is wahabi mainly (imho CRAZY)
Iran is Shia
Egypt is primarily Sunni

Who are the same enemies they share? Egyptians do not hate the US nor do they constantly proclaim anti US rhetoric/propaganda. Are there people in Egypt that do not like the US or its policies? Sure, but I know plenty of Americans that do not agree with US foreign policies as well.

Muslims do not fit into the perfect little box that I see many trying to put them in. If you ever have the opportunity to travel to a mid east country, you will see that it really isn't that different than your daily life in the west, with the exception of seeing a few more head scarves, and even that depends on the country you visit. For instance in Egypt, you will see a lot of scarves, but you will not be arrested for wearing one, nor will people look at you like an alien, and you will a fair amount of Egyptian women without them.

I am going to post this here,

Mubarak slammed U.S. in phone call with Israeli MK before resignation
Radical Islam will be result of U.S. push for democracy, Mubarak told Israel's Ben-Eliezer during a phone call on Thursday.
www.haaretz.com...




"He gave me a lesson in democracy and said: 'We see the democracy the United States spearheaded in Iran and with Hamas, in Gaza, and that's the fate of the Middle East,'" Ben-Eliezer said.

"'They may be talking about democracy but they don't know what they're talking about and the result will be extremism and radical Islam,'" he quoted Mubarak as saying.


"'They may be talking about democracy but they don't know what they're talking about and the result will be extremism and radical Islam,'" he quoted Mubarak as saying.

U.S. support for pro-democracy elements in Iran has not led to regime change in the Islamic Republic, and Hamas, a group Washington considers to be a terrorist organization, won a 2006 Palestinian election promoted by the United States.

Hamas seized control of the Gaza Strip in 2007 after a coalition government it formed with Western-backed Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas collapsed in a power struggle.

Ben-Eliezer said Mubarak expanded in the telephone call on "what he expects will happen in the Middle East after his fall".

"He contended the snowball (of civil unrest) won't stop in Egypt and it wouldn't skip any Arab country in the Middle East and in the Gulf.

"He said 'I won't be surprised if in the future you see more extremism and radical Islam and more disturbances -- dramatic changes and upheavals," Ben-Eliezer added.


www.cnn.com...


"The armed forces council calls on the people to cooperate with the policemen," Lt. Gen. Sami Anan said on state television. "We ask our policemen to adhere to their slogan: "Police is at the people's service."

Interesting article.

But to me it sounds more like a last ditch scare tactic to retain power by trying to get support from a likely ally, scare your neighbor with the thing they fear the most.

I don't know maybe I'm in denial or something, but I am not worried about Egypt turning extremist. I'm just simply not, I have faith in the Egyptian people.

US push for Democracy?

By acquiescing to the Egyptian peoples wishes and desires for a change is now viewed as a US Push?

I've seen and read all kinds of opinions trying to twist and turn this into this or that over the past few days. But this is a new approach. If they mean by the US's Inaction to further support Mubarak as a push then so be it.


It is becoming very blatantly obvious to any unbiased observer that the US is being demonized by all sides.

Spin Spin Spin....
