Egyptian President Says…

| Filed under: Media MinutePolitik

egyptian president cant leave office

Earlier this week, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak said that he would NOT be running for another term this September.

Now, he's opened up further about his Presidential woes, and he's made it clear that he won't leave office right now because he's afraid that Egypt would fall into even more chaos if he did if that's even possible.

Here's what he had to say about yesterday's protests:

"I was very unhappy about yesterday. I do not want to see Egyptians fighting each other."

More from Mubarak:

"I don't care what people say about me. Right now I care about my country, I care about Egypt."

And more from Mubarak on his whether or not he'll ever leave Egypt:

"I would never run away. I will die on this soil."

Whether or not he stays in office for the rest of his term, let's hope that further actions are taken to stop the violence.

Thoughts???

    Kick his DICTATOR ass out of the country. If he will not leave put him in prison. ALL dictators should know they will eventually pay dearly for their crimes against humanity. 30 freaking years in power!!!!!!!

    Well, he's right, if he steps down now, then the radicals will take over and before you know, we've got another Iran on our hands. There needs to be an orderly transition. And, our president has proven again what an idiot he is on foreign affairs. He says he doesn't want to get involved, but then at the same time tells Mubarak he has to leave - he should have kept his mouth shut. The protests were very peaceful until Obama opened his big mouth and said HE told Mubarak he had to go.

    What further action do you recommend? He sent his thugs in to beat down the protesters.
    Mubarek is a rare American ally in the Middle East. However, further chaos will crumble the country, destroy its history and may never again be a premier tourist destination. To save Egypt at this point he needs to get the fuck out.

    The Foreign Presss has been ejected, assaulted, and detained in advance of tomorrow's "Day of Departure" Protests. I believe that Murabak & is goons are planning a MAJOR attack against the Protesters, and want no witnesses to their evil deeds! Word from Tahir Square is all is quiet now, but it was quiet Wednesday night too when they came at Midnight! Mubarak will see Egypt burn before he agrees to leave, his actions the last seven days have proved he'll stop at nothing to get his way! Thank goodness your trip happened before the Revolution began Perez! My quiet thoughts of strength, safety & healing to the Egyptian People.

    There's always two sides to the story. I'd like to hear his. I do agree with him though- I wouldn't want people from my country fighting each other. I'd want them to work together peacefully to bring about a positive change. No need for violence. We must be civil.

    this is the kind of irresponsible reporting that leads to journalists getting attacked. you are making things worse - you are not a journalist - you are a gossip blogger. stay out of international affairs. you are indirectly putting people in danger and misrepresenting the protesters to your primarily american readers. you already insulted the UK in a previous post. stop it.

    If that's even possible. really? You are young and naive. thank god for you. you don't live in tormoil, you live in the luxury of the us. you would have lasted 10 seconds in revolutionary cuba. tens of thousands die in revolutions, and most of them are not concerned with what nicole richie wore to in and out burger. this is real, it's not a show on mtv.

    Can you really take the word of a dictator who has been in power for 30 years?

    I think you have to know when to leave the party. He was accepted politically by Egyptians for not just 30, but for 62 years, but it's obviously not working for them anymore. It could also be a well orchestrated coup, but the man's 82. He should spend time with his family and smell some roses and mover over, rover, and let Jimmy take over.

    He looks like someone smacked him in the face with a frying pan!
    Nonetheless the U.S. needs to learn to keep it's nose out of other's affairs, they don't allow other countries to tell them what to do they than shouldn't have right to tell other's.
    If the people of Egypt want him out, than let them handle it.
    If Americans knew what they were doing they would have kicked Bush out and tried him for war crimes.

    After me, chaos, he says. Ha ! Ha ! As if chaos was not already on the streets of Cairo and other cities. Get OUT, the egyptian people do not want you to stay, is that clear, you old greedy tyrant dictator . And how did he come to have a 17 billion fortune just by being president ? His family is worth from 40 to 70 billion, WOW. that's a well paying job, I'll say.
