Mubarak To World: I Fart In Your General Direction

(5 pm. – promoted by ek hornbeck)


I Taunt You

Well, once again the pundits have shown that they can get it wrong.  Very wrong.  Today’s supposed love fest, to be commenced when Mubarak would go somberly on TV and announce in tones reminiscent of Richard Nixon that he was stepping down or ceding power, is canceled.  Until further notice.  Mubarak insists he will remain  Apparently until he is forced to leave.

And he’s served notice that the force requiring him to leave isn’t going to come from the millions of demonstrators.  Or from the US and EU, which have propped up this tyrant, our Man in Cairo, democracy be damned, for thirty years.  No.  He’s going to stay the course.

Said the tyrant petulantly in today’s television speech:

“We will not accept or listen to any foreign interventions or dictations,” Mr. Mubarak said, implying that pressure to resign came from abroad as opposed to masses of people demanding his ouster through his country.

Well, ok, then.  That will put the US and the EU and pro-democracy forces across the world on notice and in their place.

Let the demonstrations continue.  This guy clearly has to go.

    many years ago, never, never expect dictators to do anything rational. Now well this holds is dependent on the military.

    he reminds me of some 1930s horror film.  How old is he now?  80?  This is why there has to be new blood thrown in the mix.  He sounded completely out of it in his speech today, as did his VP.  And the crowds were yelling “Leave, Leave, Leave.”

    Dillon had an excellent show – and some good commentary from his guests, one of whom a young Egyptian female writer, said the lobbyists were out in force in Washington DC now pushing for status quo –  no matter what Pence and Ackerman were saying about Obama getting on the protestors’ side –  

    Lobbyists – of course they’re involved!  For a moment..never mind.

  2. the shoes, they weren’t buying it or his torturer in chief VP. the ‘journalists’ seem unable to hear what the people in Egypt they interview, are saying the whole regime needs to go. I don’t like our own CIA head mouthing off one bit. In fact I’m pretty disgusted with our whole regime and our permanent state of emergency that Obama prefers to keep. At least here we get a new face of the regime every 8 years or so.
