The Good Old Days: Hosni Mubarak and the Gang

Call me optimistic, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we see Egypt’s favorite dictator back in power in the near future. The current protests in Egypt have got Morsi on the ropes, and the army certainly doesn’t appear to be backing him at all.

And why should it?

The country has deteriorated to incredibly low levels since Mubarak was kicked out.

I’m willing to bet the Egyptian people would be glad to have Mubarak back at the reins, and putting everything back where it belongs.

Consider this – after being deposed, Mubarak wasn’t shot or hung. Quite an unusual move, I’d say. Almost as if someone (the army?) wanted to keep him in reserve in case things got really, really bad.

Bad, sort of like where Egypt is now, with only a few weeks of gas left.

Morsi, on the other hand, doesn’t really enjoy that kind of support from the army, or the people.

If a coup happens, you can be rest assured that Morsi will most likely quietly find his end somewhere behind a building, and if Mubarak does come back after his extended sabbatical vacation, the rest of the Muslim Brotherhood members will likely be meeting Allah almost as soon.

I just want to remind (the potentially) returning President Mubarak of one thing. It was Fuad Ben-Eliezer and others in the Israeli government that showed you support and offered you asylum when the going got tough, not America, and definitely not your fellow Arab countries. So when you’re back in power and cleaning house, if you could take care of the Sinai for us and those Gaza tunnels, it would be much appreciated.

  1. "if you could take care of the Sinai for us and those Gaza tunnels, it would be much appreciated".

    It is the Morsi government that has been cracking down on the lawlessness in the Sinai and flooding those Gaza tunnels, something Mubarak never did.

  2. "Mubarek kept the blockade,did destroy tunnels,kept the Sinai safe!"

    He nominally kept the blockade but let the smuggling tunnels go unchecked. And Egyptian security had no presence in most of the Sinai which was as lawless as Somalia.

  3. With deep joy has published a French newspaper during the Egyptian revolution your article and a picture of fall of Mubarak structure in the sands of Egypt and bury it alive.
