Egypt's Mubarak Will Not Step Down… Yet

| Filed under: Politik

Egypt’s President Hosni Mubarak announced in his address to the country that he will not be stepping down immediately.

He did, however, promise to cede all (or most) of his power to the Vice President Omar Suleiman — although Mubarak will still retain the title of President.

Egypt’s protesters responded with fury and are not happy at all with Mubarak’s statements. They want him out now — not in September like he promises.

In the speech Mubarak commented that he will not take orders from foreign sources (presumably the US and other countries who have approached him).

Mubarak needs to do more than this. We understand that there needs to be order to this transition as to avoid more chaos, but the people of Egypt won’t be satisfied as long as he’s still in office!

    Egypt’s protesters responded with FURY and ARE NOT HAPPY at all with Mubarak’s statements.

    GOOD GOD HOW CAN YOU BE SO INCOMPETENT.
    If they responded with fury, they surely aren't exactly happy campers.
    Typical illiterate American.

    So… do I understand this right?
    -
    The Chinese control our money and tell us what to do. And we do it.
    -
    The Russians own our nukes and secrets, and tell us what to do. And we do it.
    -
    The Saudis own our oil and tell us what to do. And we bow and do it.
    -
    A lunatic foreigner (Soros) with too much money and an evil-sounding accent wants to destroy the U.S. and the world, and he tells us what to do. And we do it.

    Is this diplomacy, progressive-style?
    Ole Hosni keeps punking Barry and The Gang.

    It's pretty ironic that the Egyptian dictator won't be dictated to by the Kenyan dictator.

    Friday will be an interesting day for Egypt. I will be tuned to Anderson Cooper. He is awesome.

    You should probably do some research before you make posts about politics.
    There are thousands of pro-Mubarak supporters aswell.
    Simply denouncing his title will actually do little to stem the huge problems in Egypt.

    He bloody well better do something to bring peace by to the Egyptian people.
    Enough of this drama. Just when our soliders are coming home at last. Now another uproar in the world. Can there ever be world peace for just 15 minutes? One can dream can't they?

    Peace Out,
