USAfrica: Mubarak’s games continue, says he’ll “die on the soil of Egypt”; citizens say Leave NOW!!

By Chido Nwangwu, USAfricaonline.com , February 1, 2011: As the Egyptians’ popular uprising and pressure took a massive leap today against the 30-plus years of the iron-fisted presidency of Hosni Mubarak and his tottering government, the dictator has been forced to remove himself from running for another term, vowing instead of exile he will “die on the soil of Egypt.”

But the citizens say no more; no more games, and “game over!” and no more postponements just “Leave, Mubarak”, “We want our freedom”, “Leave now….”

He promised, again, a few minutes ago, as he has for 30 years: “This is my promise and pledge to the people,” to see to social, economic and political reforms enhancing the rights of the Egyptian people. Remarkably, he said that he recognizes that it’s time to “ensure a peaceful transition of power” and election of “someone to be elected by the people in the coming election.”
He cast the issues and demands at hand as events which “require us all to choose between chaos or stability” and create “new Egyptian reality” between the people and the military/armed forces of Egypt.
USAfrica and USAfricaonline.com will interpret Mubarak’s so-called “new Egyptian reality” — in his February 1, 2011 speech- as a negotiating position, for himself as a former airforce commander and his military cronies. Significantly, he has been unable to get the full support of the army as he is in a dizzying fall into irrelevance.
On Friday this week, Mubarak will face, if he is still in power, what promises to be another major showdown as the citizens of Egypt who have promised bigger and more robust demonstrations until the ruler despised leaves power.
The demonstrators across Egypt and civic and many religious religious leaders inside Egypt demand that nothing short of an outright exit from power will do.

USAfrica: As Egypt’s corrupter-in-chief Mubarak slides into history’s dustbin, Egyptians are Not waiting for Obama and United Nations.

USAfrica, January 30, 2011: As the popular uprising and pressure continue in Egypt against the 30-plus years of the iron-fisted presidency of Hosni Mubarak and his tottering government take more hardline but futile actions, the leadership realities of the post-Mubarak are developing and new leaders emerging.

First and clearly, the pace of the demands and demonstrators are, understandably, far ahead of the policy establishments in Washington DC., London, Tel Aviv and other centers of international influence. Some of their “specialists” still argued until the dying days that the regime is not like Tunisia’s and Tunisians are more deprived than Egyptians. Both claims are flimsy  and misleading; or worse, simply false.

Second, the complications and dizzying twist of the events have left the Obama administration looking rather slow in clearly defining and identifying the issues in credible terms reflecting the demand of Egyptians for an open society, fundamental democratic rights, media freedom and human rights, opposition to the personalization of the resources and instruments of Egyptian state power by Mubarak and his cronies, accountability for the resources of Egypt, opposition to corruption  and squandermania by Mubarak and his henchmen and families, the legitimate demands for the expansion of economic opportunities for the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness.

Like most dictators, Mubarak does not know, any more, he is an emperor without clothes…. It’s been, to put it tidily, a revolting, tawdry and sorry image. It’s no longer if, but how soon… when, what day, what hour for Egypt’s corrupt dictator Mubarak to completely slide into history’s dustbin. Good bye to bad rubbish!
