I feel sorry for Mubarak.

Reader comment on item: Reflections on Hosni Mubarak's Resignation

Submitted by batya dagan (United States), Feb 13, 2011 at 22:02

I wonder how long will it take for the Egyptians to blame Obama for their misery and loss of stability with the abrupt ,honorless departure of Mubarak.

The few friends that we still have in the wolrld will wonder too when they will be thrown under the buss by a child/man who sees himself as king of the world and plays games with millions of lives hoping to be elected yet again .

I do not blame the Egyptians for wanting democracy.I suspect though that they do not know what real democracy is and do not realize that democracy is not paradisze but hard work by everyone. I feel sorry for Mubarak who was not allowed to finish his term and did not get his nation to say good bye in a nice formal way.

One wonders what will the Egyptian history books write about him twenty years from now.
