In the name of God the merciful, the compassionate, citizens, during these very difficult circumstances Egypt is going through, President Hosni Mubarak has decided to step down from the office of president of the republic and has charged the high council of the armed forces to administer the affairs of the country. May God help everybody.
Defense Minister Field Marshal Mohammed Hussein Tantawi has effected a coup. The Mubarak regime is dead.
Make no mistake. The military is in charge. Everything, good and bad, will now be their responsibility.
Oh. Obama and the US handled this with the right touch. Period. The clerics in Iran, like all religious fanatics, are fools and sooner or later, the same will happen to them.
Good luck, Egypt.
