And For Today's Dose Of The Surreal: Mubarak Suffers Heart Attack During Questioning

Tyler Durden's picture

From The National Post:

Egyptian state television is reporting that former president Hosni Mubarak suffered a heart attack during questioning by prosecutors investigating graft and abuse allegations which prompted his admission to hospital Tuesday


Former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak was hospitalized in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh Tuesday, two days after he was summoned for questioning by prosecutors, security sources told AFP.

“Mubarak was admitted to the Sharm el-Sheikh International Hospital this afternoon, amid a very heavy security presence in the town,” a security source told AFP.

Contacted by AFP, a hospital source refused to comment on the news and said that “the minister of health will make an announcement” shortly.

Mr. Mubarak was admitted by his bodyguards to the VIP wing of the hospital, state television reported, adding that the hospital was not accepting any patients except for emergency cases.

Police cars and ambulances surrounded the hospital, as well as a heavy military police presence, the television said.

Well, with the credit bubble boiling over, and funds using other people's money to buy up bridges in the Kalahari desert from point A to point A, in pursuit of guaranteed 10% in Kalahari Bridge Collateralized Debt, who can really blame the Egyptians for trying to access the collateralized bullshit obligation market?

And yes, we predict now that Mubarak will "die" soon, with his body mysteriously vanishing naturally.

Congressional Hearing

The dart from this secret CIA weapon can penetrate clothing and leave nothing but a tiny red dot on the skin. On penetration of the deadly dart, the individual targeted for assassination may feel as if bitten by a mosquito, or they may not feel anything at all. The poisonous dart completely disintegrates upon entering the target.

The lethal poison then rapidly enters the bloodstream causing a heart attack. Once the damage is done, the poison denatures quickly, so that an autopsy is very unlikely to detect that the heart attack resulted from anything other than natural causes.

King Chairsatan, Mubarak & Sons, wheezin the junk, like a Milken Heart Attack on Casino Night at the Pyramid next to D Nile, trying to escape their loss. Got a feeling Mubarak and the Mo Mo's are gonna walk like ...wait for it

I want dibs on his testicles.  Just think about it.  What somebody, sometime down the road might pay for that/them little oddities.  Probably better than PM's.  New market in HosniNuts.  Come with a surprise inside.

Sort of like the TEPCO CEO: falls ill when the SHTF.  Are we supposed to feel sorry for him?

cossack55's picture

Nah. He will just be chillin' with Ken Lay down in Argentina.

tonyw's picture

Feel sorry, no way he had many years of stealing from the people for the benfit of his cronies and did not hesitate to violently crush dissent.

Good news, apparently his two sons have been taken to jail in Cairo this morning.

Funny how everything happens to go in the proper direction as dictated by the Fed.

Either by a tsunami of paper shorts in the oil market, Fed buying of retail stocks, and mysterious illnesses befalling various dictators.

Looks like TPTB has everything under control.

Everyone has a calling, we all serve our purpose. It is good for business though.

It occured the moment he was told gold was down $13. Net to you Mr President? A $580,000,000,000 hit to your 1,400,000 tonne stash. Relax sir, 1.1% is no big.

slaughterer's picture

Mubi is donating all of that gold to the "Bill and Melinda Gates Charitable Foundation" upon his death.  Wants to go to heaven and wait for Buffie up there.

The USeless Empire had best be careful how it treats its aging satraps. The deal has always been a nice villa in the south of France, with all the stolen loot to make things cozy.

Righto Tyler,

And now that every last really pathetic loser long side criminal institutional bagholder has been bailed out intraday by the power of the magic HFT deployed today at 1:31 est on the Roach Motel [SPY] in unison with the printing press in Ben Bernanke's basement...I think we can now resume the plunging and screaming in disbelief portion of today's market the Great Goldman "surprise" continues while every last hockey helmet wearing moron who has not left yet tries to jam himself into the exit door at the same time...because he is still "bullish" because historical PEs are "cheap" and UnicornDew futures contracts suggest 20% upside in Pixiefuckindust, while E. Burnett smiles and laughs her disturbingly syrupy laughter and Phil Le beau reports on anything but GM cars with steering wheels that pop off, and Cramer chants the same 10 ticker symbols for the 1000th time in hopes that one last algorithm written by a retarded buy buys...and Becky Quick prepares to freak everyone out by endorsing the IRS.

Great!  Now...where the fuck is the actual market?  Anyone...Beuller....Beuller....

And the final stretch...while you report the upcoming planned dollar crime spree to come at Treasury... bringing us home is M. Bartiromo and grandpa Giffith with a scintillating Bull/Bull debate between people who long ago lost track of their actual intellectual curiosity, misplaced with their credibility which was inside of their moral code....and Bob Pisani tells us what the "important thing about today is."

LONG AND STRONG HERE, Tyler!!  Fucking crazy pills everywhere baby!!

Did he try to eat all the gold he stole? It has 0 nutrional value, so I'm told.

Nouriel recommends spam as a solid investment because you can't eat gold

well i almost swallowed my gold crown tooth. it fell off as i bit into my bubble gum, this morning. i could of swallowed that fucker†

Hephasteus's picture

It's not a gold crown tooth. It's a gold mercury almalgam. It's kill you.

My mom tripped and lost a tooth and they could have put it back in but the people who worked at the dentist office were so poisoned to retardation that they were unable to figure out what she was calling about. They thought a crown had fallen off or some shit when they could have put her in the chair and put it back in within a couple hours.

They had to force my dentist into retirement because he was making so many bad mistakes because he had been neurologically damaged so badly.

ClubMed.  In a neon international flame rescue electric orange banana hanger, humongoliod white rimmed blue tinted sunglasses, slathered with Crisco, Lindsay Lohan on his arm barely able to stand or move being dragged along in the sand, a Motorola DynaTAC 8000X slung over his shoulder screaming obscenities at Jim Cramer live on the air (something about the equity layer of the Aswan Dam Advantage VIII defaulted interest only equity layer of a deal he's trying to unload) ultra long hand carved ivory cigarette holder with a massive splib/Gitanes (F*me that sounds bloody good!) mix alight, a massive cloud of blueish smoke wafting about after him.
The world is his oyster. 
And all I wants's his testicles for my odditiies collection.
Is that asking too much?

Pulling a Ken Lay. Got to get him to caymens to reward him of his loyal service.

he will never talk... he would rather die by heart attack

Sounds like just how Slobodan Milosevic died of a "heart attack" during his trial at the Hague.  Ex-US puppets always seem to expire before they can deliver any damning testimony...

"Enhanced interrogation", ie torture (stress positions, etc), put a huge amount of stress on the heart.  An older person being subjected to such treatment is likely to suffer such a fate.

Yes, the Mukhabarat got Mubarak.

Your gonna need about 10,000 ambulances for heart attack victims when this economy crashses and memebers of congress, banks, wall streeter and the like start getting  questions before people tribunals with death sentences over their heads. It's coming

Vendetta's picture

there will probably be some heart attacks from the PM launch at that time as well.  Different reasons, same stress factor
