Hosni Mubarak

Hosni Mubarak

This guy -->

Disclaimer: I haven't been following this Egypt thing very closely. Mostly because there's nothing that I can personally do for them. It sucks, but it's true. I just know from what I've seen and heard that many people are not happen. Like, a LOT of people.

Anyway... spotted a tweet from BBC today about the ABC News Interview with him that really kind of took me by surprise. Not that someone got an interview with him, just what came out of that interview. The tweet went like this:

ABC News reports that #Egypt's President Mubarak has told them he does not want to step down now, for fear it would cause chaos

Err... what?

Irony (n): an outcome of events contrary to what was, or might have been, expected.

Ya, I'd say that's about right. I don't know if this guy has been told yet... but his country IS amidst chaos. Right now. So to not step down because it would cause chaos seems a bit... I don't know, retarded?

Of course this really just sounds like an "excuse" to not have to step down right away. Like he already said he would do so in September (likely just hoping everyone forgets about this little "incident")...

I don't know much about politics (and really don't care to) but this is probably one of the dumbest things I've ever read.
