The best part is, no one will be able to control the hyperinflation in food prices... they might as well have picked OJ Simpson to lead Egypt.
That pic kinda looks like OJ's brother....
Wait a second. Wait one freakin second. Has anyone actually seen OJ in the past week? That pic looks freakishly similar. Oh well, what's the worst OJ would do to those people?
Who told you? OJ is his sleeper. Eliminate the Bernank - eliminate inflation.
Almost three weeks ago I said the people should be protesting Bernank not just Mubarak... How one man can bring the whole world to its knees is amazing in this so called "advanced society" we live in. Now, I am convinced Bernak is the antichrist. But still can't figure out where OJ plays in this...
Imagine Obamas call to him him later...
"YOU Hussein? I Hussein too!"
nice smile, though, and at least the military is more democratic and people-oriented. plus, with those fab epaulettes, need we wonder what is tatoodled on his ass?
His one most important quality will be his ability to put down the islamo nazis and prevent imposition of islamic law. That's going to be tough, given the attitudes of the egyptian population. Also, while the military is widely admired in egypt, that's because the national mythology is that the military defeated the Jooooos in the four very popular wars they launched with the mission of elliminating them. The country is nuts. If you know a non-nutjob egyptian in your private life, they'll admit that 80% of the population is certifiable, which is about what we see in the recent pew poll of attitudes. To measure their nuttiness yourself, have a look into "Female Genital Mutilation" which practiced on not 0.9% or 9%, but fully 90% of egyptian girls. Egypt is a psycho-state on the verge of cracking.
And yet, unlike Apartheid Israel, they don't practice ethnic cleansing.
They're not doing a good job of it since 30% of Israel is Arab. I wonder if you are as upset about the situation in Sudan or Iran with non-Muslims being oppressed.
At least OJ can drop the price of Florida Orange Juice!!!!
Oil breaks trend. Me likey.
Listen to this interview, it's Webster Tarpley on infowars talking about possible successors to Mubarak. He specifically mentions Tantawi, Tantawi and general Anan were in Washington presumably being briefed by the CIA on 26th of january.
Enjoy your military junta, Egypt. You earned it.
Not a good middle name for a ruler. I speak from experience.
+ 1 Kenyan
Now THAT is funny.
He shoots, he scores!
+ fourz. plus, the trickle down in any military is to die for, eh? if the breadheads don't like this set-up, they can always start a big march and get somebody else to feed them the bread and other crap.
How come they all look like mummies?
When was the last time you saw a video clip of Osama bin Laden? Years ago...
I've received 2 reports on bin Laden.
A marine I knew in college was in Afgan when we first went. He told me we had Osama located in 3 months. He wouldn't tell me what we did with him.
Met a very young man just back from Afgan at the bar about 6 weeks ago. I asked him if he even knew why he was there. He told me he didn't, but that it wasn't about bin Laden because we have a 6 man crew that follows him everywhere he goes.
Both obviously only rumors. But I put more faith in those 2 first hand accounts than anything our media would report.
Sad but true. OBL is dead and has been since 2006/2007. Again, why is the US over there?
The US is there for the poppy fields. The CIA utilizes the sale of opium to fund their "projects".
Don't tell my father. He labelled my thinking "extreme" when I told him that was the reason. He doesn't know you, there's no telling what he'll tell you about your thought processes.
You should ask your father why the remaining US soldiers that are left there are guarding these fields? :)
Again, why is the US over there?
Again, why is the US over there?
Afghanistan sits between Iran and China; America has to keep an eye on her oil.
He may look like a mummy, but he is definately a fossil! This dude is like 75 years old. He should be napping on the couch or calling in his prescription to Walgreens, not taking over what is arguably the most important job in the world today!
The most important job in the world today is making sure the printing machines are running 24/7... fresh clean bankster bonus 'money'
Military Guy! What a luck for (U)s, eh!?
The young protesters will never accept another military leader with close ties to the US. Theywill keep protesting until the Brotherhood takes control, cuts off all communication for a few days and disposes of their bodies. I bet this guy was trained and bought by the US military. I hope it works but I doubt it. Looks like Murburak 30 years ago. If Murburak is leaving with $70 billion (probably double), he has made $2+ billion per year. Nearly as much as our bankters.
The more things change, the more....
Glenn's on at 5:00... I hear he has the inside scoop on the Brotherhood plot... hurry, hurry, you don't want to miss "Dear Leader's" take on this!
You should read his transcripts and see how often he's wrong. Answer, not many. There's a reason he has such a strong following despite the lousy time slot.
Dude, why r u reading ZH? Most ZHers know more than the MSM line. Glenn Beck is a bald faced liar, a hucksters who mixes edgy truth (with no incriminating details for the sick and twisted "establishment) to get people's attention and then lies like a stone (all day, just lies there!).
Had some chart up about assassinations and just outright lied about JFK and both assassination attempts on Ford (in the space of 2 weeks). Guess who the VP was then? Well, no less than Mr CFR himself: Rockefucker.
Dude, I don't consider Beck true MSM, he has a rather unique niche. Granted, I think he has limits on what he can say but he has an excellent understanding of Soros, progressives, and their designs to reform this country.
Once the euphoria has died down and the people sobered up people will be looking to the military to actually deliver. They will be wanting to see, the dissolution of parliament, the lifting of the state of emergency, all the things they have been demanding.
I doubt Mubarak will be allowed to leave.
The Brotherhood had nothing to do with the REVOLUTION. The fucking cowards stayed home.
I can't imagine that endeared them at all to the people who make this happen.
Why you think they're stronger now is beyond me.
No worries Carmine, We'll have the best Homecoming Faber's ever had
Apparently Lieutenant General Sami Enan, the Egyptian army's chief of staff stayed in DC too long...http://www.atimes.com/atimes/Middle_East/MB03Ak04.html
President Hosni Mubarak has resigned as President of Egypt.
...He is now planning to run for President in the 2012 American elections.
Probably be more honest than Obummer or Palin...
And like voting for Dole, you just know the VP is the one you're really voting for!
All you people celebrating, are such moronic wastes of sperm

What's the CDS spread on More Critical Thinking Wanted's note?
Coming from a single celled amoeba.(like yourself) I'll pay extra attention, to stay out of the Liberal cesspool.
We haven't had a Field Marshal in charge of North Africa since the days of Rommel!
This calls for a new cereal! Captain Crunch, meet Field Marshal Tantawi!
LOL, good one!
I suspect not so much sugar and a boatload of unknown fiber.
