JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: THE ULTIMATE LAUGHING-STOCK EDITORIAL CALLS MUBARAK SHREWD AFTER HIS SPEECH DISAPPOINTING THE WORLD AND JUST HOURS BEFORE HIS RESIGNATION   Leave a comment

POSTED RESPONSE TO AN EDITORIAL IN TORONTO’S GLOBE AND MAIL

“The President of Egypt has shrewdly faced down those calling for his resignation.”

No one who observes and thinks clearly is capable of writing nonsense like this.

Did you re-print a press release from Avigdor Lieberman’s Israeli Foreign Office?

Or is this a “guest” editorial by a pea-brain like Peter MacKay or Peter Kent?

“Shrewdly” is the last word to describe this off-balance man’s behavior.

He pretty much has cast the dice for a military coup.

What Mark Shore has written below is undoubtedly accurate. The U.S. has forbidden the use of its weapons against the crowd by Mubarak.

He simply must go.

The demonstrations are spreading to other parts of Egypt and strikes are now likely.

The military will softly shove Mubarak, and perhaps now his stooge appointment, out the door to one of his many properties abroad bought with stolen money.

Then there will be some decent elections over a period of time.

Dear Globe, you are making a laughing stock out of yourself with such dim-witted editorials.

Not many hours later, Mubarak resigned.

“Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive
But to be young was very heaven!”
