Mubarak Must Go.

with 2 comments

The sight of elderly politicians clinging on to power is not a pretty one.

Mubarak still thinks he can make it, at least until September 2011.

But the departure of his regime with all its brutality, corruption and contempt for ordinary Egyptians is long overdue, 30 years too late.

Mubarak must go.

  2. Who knows?

    But as I have argued *any* democracy is better than all dictatorships.

    If democracy is good enough for people in the West then those in the Middle East deserve no different, and we shouldn’t assume that they can’t organise, that they can’t manage themselves, with time.

    They have had 30 years of a dictatorship, so it won’t be easy, but we should wish the people well, they deserve that and more.
