The Egyptian People Demand President Mubarak Leave The Country

The Egyptian people demand President Mubarak leave the country.

Protesters in the center square say that they will not leave until the government takes action to expedite their demands. After 30 years of President Mubarak’s control of the government, the Egyptian people are protesting in the streets of Cairo and Alexandria against the Mubarak Government. For the past eight days, protesters still continue to riot and protest their government.

Unemployment in Egypt is 10% and food prices are escalating similar as to what’s happening right here in the US. Mubarak has inniated changes in the government and he has told the people that he will not run for another term. The protesters are demanding that Mubarak leave Egypt immediately. President Mubarak has not altered his plan to stay until the next election later this year and has refused to resign. It is clear that the army is supporting the existing government and has controlled most of the rioting factions so far.

Congress is wondering why the Obama Administration was not prepared for the insurrection across Egypt and the middle east countries. Congressional hearings may discover that the administration was informed last year by the intelligence agencies but they did not act and failed to inform Congress. President Obama has denied knowing about the potential uprising in Egypt.

President Barak Obama held a news conference on Friday 2/4/11 and spoke briefly of the Egyptian riots. President Obama on wed. took another step away from the US Government’s strongest ally in the middle east. The President said he was ordering Mubarak to begin a new transition to a new regime. ‘’. Obama said that he had a telephone conversation with President Mubarak and told him that ‘’ an orderly transition must be meaningful, must be peaceful and must begin now’’

The US Government has for 30 years supported the Mubarak led government. It should not be the US Government to interfere with the government of Egypt in any way .The people of Egypt must solve their problems internally as they are doing. Some members of our government have decided to ignore the serious ramifications to having a radical group take over in Egypt.

Many of our allies in the middle east are watching our government's actions in what is happening in Egypt. Surely, they may be concerned as to how quickly the US government has essentially abandon the Mubarak government. Should the government be taken over by groups not friendly with our ally Israel, some would question what actions would the US government take to defend Israel in case of a war..

President Barak Obama recently made a statement that President Mubarak has held office for 30 years and that it’s time to move on. The president also pointed out that a majority of Egyptians want Mubarak to leave the country and that President Mubarak should listen to the desires of the people. What a hypocrite our President is, seems to me that 60% of the people were against the Obama Healthcare Reform bill before Obama pushed it through the US Congress, Chicago style.

For members of our Congress, 30 years of service should not be a reason to sent some of them back to the private sector. In 30 years ,wondering how many recessions the 30 year All-stars had a part in taking care of the middle class working people. In our democracy they are allowed to serve until the We The People vote them out.

The list of United States congress persons by longevity of service. It includes those Representatives and Senators who have served at least 36years

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_members_of_the_United_States_Congress_by_longevity_of_service

The lists include fourteen currently serving members: John Dingell, Daniel Inouye, John Conyers, Charles B. Rangel, Bill Young, Thad Cochran, Pete Stark, Don Young, Patrick Leahy, Max Baucus,Chuck Grassley, Tom Harkin, George Miller, and Henry Waxman. It includes thirteen former members who are still alive: Jack Brooks,Ernest Hollings, Robert H. Michel, Joe Biden, William Broomfield,Neal Edward Smith, Joseph McDade, Paul Sarbanes, Pete Domenici,Ralph Regula, Christopher Dodd, Dave Obey, and James Oberstar

Take note, some of the above have announced that they will not run for re-election in 2012.Just a reminder of what our government is ‘’ Government by people , for the people’’ or is it ‘’Government for the people, by the people’’, confusing sometimes. How about ‘’ We are a nation of the rule of law ‘’, somehow that don’t include our Government in Washington. Maybe somewhere Congress or the President gave themselves an exemption. Enforcing the immigration laws seem to come to mind.

Your comparing our government including the Obama administration with Mubaruk's government is totally off base and partisan. Mubaruk for years has held sham elections and organized a Constitution that ensures himself absolute power. All of the policies of the Democrats that you so despise were passed fairly. This with Senate filibusters, which are anti-democratic, moderating them. This would not occur in Egypt today. The Obama administration has been careful to help nudge Mubaruk out both in the media and behind the scenes. They are attempting to allow him to save face and keep our allies on board. They also know we cannot be left behind by history. Mubaruk is going to go one way or the other. We are working with the military to make this orderly. They are not just looking to demolish the government to allow anything to form a government. Your Obama hating has no bounds. They are negotiating a very difficult tightrope here between the interests of the Egyptian people and our interests. They have made mistakes and have worked to get in front of this. It is a refreshing change from the Bush administration policy of running roughshod over anyone we didn't like. I do wish President George H.W. Bush had a say in the matter. There was a man who understood the region and acted and would act intelligently. Give the Obama administration a chance to work behind the scenes to make this work. It is critical to our interests. Leaving a dictator in power there now would destroy our credibility all over the world.

Thank You For The Read And Comments.

You said

‘’Your comparing our government ‘’ NO I WAS NOT COMPARING OUR GOVERNMENT.

‘’Mubaruk for years has held sham elections and organized a Constitution that ensures himself …’’ America has no business to interfere with the internal actions of a foreign government

‘’All of the policies of the Democrats that you so despise were passed fairly.’’ OUR GOVERNMENT votes after which the majority vote wins ( always )

‘’ The Obama administration has been careful to help nudge Mubaruk out both in the media and…….’’ Nudging leaders of a country in PUBLIC is wrong. In today’s paper it stated that President Obama made a complete turnabout from his prior statements.

‘’They are negotiating a very difficult tightrope here between the interests of the Egyptian people and our interests. ‘’IT’S NOT AMERICAS right to negotiate for the Egyptian people or determine who the government should be talking to.

‘’It is a refreshing change from the Bush administration policy of running roughshod over anyone we didn't like. ‘’ Bush is gone, it appears that it ( foreign affairs ) is above Obama’s ability to do the job.

‘’Give the Obama administration a chance to work behind the scenes to make this work. It is critical to our interests.’’ the Obama’s Administration is inept, arrogant and lacks experience in privately working matters out behind the scenes.

‘’Leaving a dictator in power there now would destroy our credibility all over the world.’’

There is no doubt that the world views our nation as weak because of decisions made by the Obama Administration.

Again thank you for your thoughts and opinions on the article. I simply don’t agree with your interpretation of what was written. Keep hubbing HS

Hi Jon I think the situation in Egypt is a complicated one and unfortunately one in which lives are been lost. Personally I am torn on whether other countries should interfere in the affairs of a sovereign nation. On occasion external interference helps prevent the country from dissolving into complete chaos and war. In my opinion external interference should be done perhaps when it is clear it is in line with the wishes of the people. 30 years is too long for any president to rule it tends to lead to rot,corruption and oppression of an entire nation. State representatives senators and the like are different and hence can govern for longer terms. Which is why even in the US a president is limited to two terms in office while your state representatives are not. I think this is a practice that should be maintained and enforced across the world. In the end I would like what is best for the Egyptians. This is not about Israel or the US or their interests. It really is about creating a peaceful, prosperous state for all Egyptians (not just a tiny clique) and I think that is where the world and external interference begin to go wrong when they put their nation's needs first. My prayers are with the people of Egypt and it is my hope that this matter will be resolved peacefully soon. And hopefully what is good for Egypt will also work out to be good for other nations.

Jon, The riots were insighted by the Muslim Brotherhood. Mubarek has been supported by the U.S. because he has kept them at bay. Israel is very happy to have Mubarek.

That does not mean B.O. knows what he's doing. Staying out of it may be the correct thing, but doing nothing is an Obama specialty. H

OBAMA COULDN'T GIVE O'REILLY A STRAIGHT ANSWER TO THE MUSLUM BROTHERHOOD QUESTION on super bowl Sunday morning interview..

Obama was being interviewed during the campaign for the presidency, he was asked about his faith.Barak Obama said '' I am a muslum''.That tape probably has been destroyed. His actions appear to be indirectly favoring the protesters in Egypt. The Obama administration hasn't done a good job in foreign affairs.

Today 2/11/11 President Osni Mubarak resigned from the presidency of Egypt. The protesters after 18 days in the streets of Cairo have accomplished their goals of toppling the Mubarak government. The end of the Mubarak era begins with a new uncharted era of the people seeking Democracy.

The world will be watching what the future will bring to the people of Egypt on this historic day.

Wake up America to the abuse of power that the people granted to our president. The national debt hit $14.3 trillion last week. Obama and the US treasury is asking Congress for $2.5 trillion more to add to the debt. Recently, the president announced that the US will forgive Egypt a $1 billion debt and will give Egypt $ 1billion in foreign aid. The Obama proposed 2012 budget has a $1.5 trillion deficit. The house approved the Ryan budget and the Senate has yet to debate either the Obama’s budget or Congressman Ryan’s budget.

Important issues for the country, it doesn’t seem like a good time for a vacation?

''Give the Obama administration a chance to work behind the scenes to make this work. It is critical to our interests.''

Today Feb 20, 2012, the Egyption government announced that the Americans invovled with the riots and the overthrow of the Mubaruk regime will be put on trial. Senator Mc Cain is in Egypt today attempting to straighten the matter out. The Brotherhood has control and will throw out the generals.
