is Mubarak saying goodbye or is this a stall?

I will pursue the transfer of power in a way that will fulfill the people’s demands and that this new government will fulfill the people’s demands and their hopes for political, economic and social progress, and for the provision of employment opportunities and fighting poverty and achieving social justice.

  1. I think the answer might be “both.” He’s old, he’s in ill health, he’s become a liability to his party. He has to go. But the shrewd old devil is hoping to buy time for his NDP to rally behind his successor, time for the uprising to fall back into its constituent movements and recede. One by one, they can be handled. It’s when they unite that Mubarak has failed to control them.

    1. That makes sense to me. When I saw he’s 82, I thought: how much longer was he going to stay in his current position anyway.
