I’m watching Fox now and I didn’t understand it that way; he’s asked his goverment officials to step down, but he’ll remain.

If this is true, I would hope that there would be free and fair elections in Egypt and that the UN and the US would ensure that those kind of elections take place without violence or interference.

Are you sure? Wasn’t it just his cabinet that he’s asking to step down? Isn’t he still trying to hang on himself? (However unlikely he is to be successful.)

I think the report was that he is asking members in the government to step down so he can appoint new ones. He’s not going anywhere.

AMB. JOHN BOLTON: Is Democracy Coming to Egypt at Last?
Fox News ^ | 28 January 2011 | John Bolton (Interview)

Posted on Friday, January 28, 2011 2:48:36 PM by The Pack Knight
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2664992/posts

As seen on Fox News Channel’s “Happening Now with Jon Scott and Jenna Lee” on January 28.

FORMER U.N. AMBASSADOR JOHN BOLTON: I think what’s clearly happened today [in Egypt] is that the Muslim Brotherhood, the radical Islamist party in Egypt has called it’s supporters into the street. I don’t think it was present on the first two or three days.

I think after the Friday prayers the Brotherhood brought its people out. That’s why the protests are even more extensive today. That constitutes no doubt about it a direct threat to the military government, and I think the failure of the other security forces to bring the demonstrations under control also now explains the presence of the military.

Let me be clear here, this is not just the Mubarak-family government. The military has ruled Egypt since Gamal Nasser and they over through King Farook.

It’s the military that is the real government and they are not going to go peacefully.

I think the question is whether and to what extent the Muslim Brotherhood and radical Islamists have infiltrated the leadership. If the military holds firm it’s entirely possible, although bloody, that the government can hold onto power. That doesn’t necessarily mean Mubarak will be in power, but the military will be, and I think that is why this contrast makes it so important for people to understand, this is not a choice between the Mubarak government on one hand, and sweetness and light, Jeffersonian democracy on the other.

I don’t think we have evidence yet that these demonstrations are necessarily about democracy. You know the old saying, “one person, one vote, one time.” The Muslim Brotherhood doesn’t care about democracy, if they get into power you’re not going to have free and fair elections either.

If Shep said that, he has bested his most ignorant statement to date, only forty-five or so minutes ago.

That's true but laughable since the purpose of the protests/riots is to remove him!

12:27 am - Mubarak announces he is dismissing the government.

12:24 am - This does not sound like a speech in which Mubarak plans on making major concessions, let alone stand down.

12:21 am - Mubarak: I also similarly adhere to defending Egypt’s stability and not to steer it into any threats that jeopardize public order ... My fellow these citizens, these demonstrations came to express lawful aspirations for more democracy.

12:17 am - President Hosni Mubarak is speaking on television right now. He says police took the initiative to defend protesters at the beginning, respecting their right to make peaceful demonstrations. But then, he says, they put the daily lives of Egyptians at risk.

Actually, more than free and fair elections (a democracy), people need to make sure their inalienable rights are protected (a republic).

I'm not saying Mubarak ran such a republic (at all), but I greatly fear what an islamic-heavy electorate would vote in.

For the actual areas of progress that Iraq has made, how are Christians doing there? (Yes, I know, Saddam was brutal to them - but now they flee.)
