About the author



  • I DO believe it was stage managed much the way you describe. Power to the people, I say (but only if they want to accomplish stuff I agree with, of course).

  • this is what I think as well. This is much better then swooping in and taking over and very clever.

  • What ever it was, it worked, and the dictator was sent packing. Congratulations to the Egyptian people! However, there now remains a problem – just who is going to fill the vacuum? Not the Vice President I hope, as I understand he is just as bad as the outgoing President. It would be, as we say in Jamaica, “swapping black dawg for monkey”. The people have stated loud and clear who they wanted out, but I haven’t heard them say, who they want in. Billy G.

  • It was interesting to see what the Egyptian military would do. They seemed to owe a lot to Mubarek but also to the US, and the whole world was watching.
    I hope things do not go wrong now after all this drama. I get nervous when people start to celebrate and party too hard and there is still much it seems that needs to be worked out.
