Watching A Government Being Toppled

Typical American Idiot I am, I kinda have  a short attention span, what can I say?

Earlier, I waited for good old boy Mubarak’s speech, figuring he would finally see the hand writing on the wall and step down.
Needless to say, me, the CIA and the President , along with a few million Egyptians got a rude surprise.

The rumors are flying, I watched him and his asshole , former torture in chief for the US in the region and the current VP, something Soleimin, talk down their noses at the rabble rousers who have been demonstrating since January 25th and who have been striking en mass and shutting down their economy and he told them to STFU and go home and get their peon asses back to work got met with a resounding FUCK YOU.

If you ever wanted to see what SHTF is, keep an eye out to what is happening over there.

So far, the military has done a good job of staying on the sidelines and not opening up with tanks and machine guns, which BTW, are ours.

The last I saw, the crowds were throwing shoes at his images on the big screens, the ultimate insult and marching towards the National Television headquarters and the Presidential Palace.

Of course, Mubarak ain’t that stupid, he is no where near that sonofabitch and neither is his (our) number two guy.

The real shit hitting the fan is going to be tomorrow.

That is when a whole buttload of pissed off Egyptians who have been straddling the fence decide they have had enough.
The key question is , and always will be, is what is the military going to do in response?

I saw the size of the crowds that were there already, I can reasonably expect that to surge by at least a third, as the people can get there.

One reporter from CNN who was there started interviewing some of the people near him and asked them what they thought of the speech and a couple of quotes struck me as quite the views of a people who are desiring a Democracy like we used to have before we became so complacent, fat, stupid and lazy.

“Death or freedom, we will have freedom”.
One protesters comment when asked his opinion.
“We just want him to leave in peace, no more blood shed”.

Pay attention to the next one, it just, might, sound a little familiar to someone over thirty years old.

” Give me liberty or give me death”.

That’s right, that was one random Egyptian in the crowds reaction.

 Where have I heard that before?
