    Re: "Beginning of the end" for Egypt's Mubarak, as son and wife flee

    Assuming they don't start open-firing, probably nothing. And even if they do, it's probably too late for Mubarak to restore order.

    RealClearWorld says that Mubarak is meeting with his military commanders right now. I'm guessing they're telling him to GTFO.

    What this tells us is that our leaders are either more than williing to deny the issues or completely void of Middle Eastern mood. And given that too many of our "expert" analysts are so eager to imply that "Khomeini" is awaiting in the shadows to rise and lead Egypt (thereby the Arab Middle East) into religious terror, no one up there is worth their pay checks.

    No......basically I am under the impression that the MB would be better for Egypt than what its like under Mubarek. And the MB is not anywhere the level of what we see in Iran or Saudi Arabia. They are moderates.

    No...he's just an antagonizer or he just doesn't understand things. I haven't quite figured it out yet from thread to thread. And he will not have things explained to him either.

    Oh it's too late. He's finished. The longer he stays, the more violent this is going to get and more difficult it is going to be to control after the fact. Mubarak breathing air in Egypt is tactically bad for us.

    Oh, I am so saddened now. That you will not explain things to me. Now I will never understand a thing.

    I'm pretty skeptical that the Muslim Brotherhood would be "moderates" or favor "modernity"...but I agree that they'd be better than Mubarak at this point, as long as they are democratically elected. It's important that we understand that democracy is not just about elections, but also about freedom of speech and freedom of the press. Assuming that a democratically-elected MB government didn't crack down on those and continued to hold fair elections, Egypt would be a better place in the long term regardless of the short-term effects of reactionary MB policies. The Egyptian people could vote them out after they got tired of them.

    And I'm not so sure that the Egyptian people would even elect the Muslim Brotherhood anyway. I suppose it's more likely than not that they would, but I don't think it's a given.
