"Huge riots continue in Egypt. Experts say one of the problems over there is there is a huge difference in wealth between the extremely rich and the vast majority of the people who have nothing. Thank God that could never happen in this country, huh?" – Jay Leno
"Now the Egyptian crowds who are protesting have turned against the United States. Oh boy, I didn't see that coming." – David Letterman
"There was a huge snowstorm in New York yesterday. I was complaining about it all day to my friend in Egypt." – Jimmy Fallon
"If I resign today, there will be chaos." he whined to Christiane Amanpour.. The only people who would accept this scenario are those who prefer their own political agendas over the repression of a people, and those scaredycats who fear change of any kind, which includes John Boehner and certain members of the US State Department... Some other patent bs that he tried to feed her during an interview this morning: "He told me that he is troubled by the violence we have seen in Tahrir Square over the last few days but that his government is not responsible for it. Instead, he blamed the Muslim Brotherhood, a banned political party here in Egypt.
He said he's fed up with being president and would like to leave office now, but cannot, he says, for fear that the country would sink into chaos.
I asked President Mubarak about the violence that his supporters launched against the anti-government protestors in Liberation Square. He told me, "I was very unhappy about yesterday. I do not want to see Egyptians fighting each other." I doubt it that Mubarak will be able to find a job selling used cars after this, perhaps he can move to Nigeria and do some email scams: "Hello, this is Hosni Mubarak and I need your help. I recently moved over $100,000,000 out of my country and cannot get access to it..." In the meantime, fighting goes on all day today between the two forces, with the Army sitting in their tanks and watching the carnage. Really, today most folks are taking a breather, and tomorrow is when the crowds will be massive, both in Egypt and in Syria, where a similar uprising is being planned. The Syrian government is satisfied that it can clamp down quick enough to allow much of a groundswell, they will only be too glad to demonstrate how to repress its citizens...
I'm too much of a cynic to believe that Egypt will be allowed to get everything the protesters want, we will find some way to have a similarly repressive regime take Mubarak's place, be it the inept Muslim Brotherhood or some other group or person that represent the teeny tiny steps of change that the paranoid old farts that rule this part of the world will accept. Tunisia can have all the human rights and dignity it can muster for its citizens, it plays no part in the chess game involving Israel. All Tunisia will get out of it will be soaring tourist rates over the next few years...
