united states overthrows mubarak

I don't have any doubts left.

From a 2008 Cairo Embassy cable:
XXXXXXXXXXXX claimed that several opposition forces — including the Wafd, Nasserite, Karama and Tagammu parties, and the Muslim Brotherhood, Kifaya, and Revolutionary Socialist movements — have agreed to support an unwritten plan for a transition to a parliamentary democracy, involving a weakened presidency and an empowered prime minister and parliament, before the scheduled 2011 presidential elections. According to XXXXXXXXXXXX, the opposition is interested in receiving support from the army and the police for a transitional government prior to the 2011 elections. XXXXXXXXXXXX asserted that this plan is so sensitive it cannot be written down.
This would have firmly implanted the idea behind the injection of news items about the suitability of ElBaradei to replace Mubarak, and is bolstered by his having made a much-published "return to Egypt", when it was so short-lived before he retired to Vienna. I don't think he'd been back until the call to prayer last Friday, and this might account for his glum physiognomy and uninspired speechifying these past few days.

He'd rather be in Vienna, but he's been slotted for this ruse and now must show up for it.

It's going to shake out that not only am I positive there are no ACTUAL terrorists anywhere within the global citizenry, but also no ACTUAL revolutionaries, save those who fervently follow those "shining" few who mysteriously take the lead.

Little wonder the meme we-don't-want-to-be-seen-as-picking-the-Egyptian-president is in such heavy rotation. Strictly speaking, it's the gospel truth, but practically-speaking, yes, that would be a bummer, but we're picking him anyway.

It's a wrap.


I know, I know, how 'bout an old movie? What could be more relaxing than that?

love, 99
