Rich President, Poor People - Page 2
Rick Newman wrote, “Mubarak also spread the wealth far and wide in Egyptian power circles — another Middle Eastern tradition — one reason he incurred the kind of loyalty that allowed him to rule for a remarkable three decades. Top Army officials were almost certainly on his payroll, which might help explain why the Army eased him out in the end — allowing a kind of in-country exile — instead of hounding him out of Egypt or imprisoning him once it was clear the tide had turned against him for good.”
What are the chances that the people of Egypt will earn their fruit of revolution? What are the chances that their revolution is going to be successful and have impacts far and wide? Only the future can tell this. The top brass of the Egyptian Army is as corrupt as they come, and the future trail of money is going to determine whether Egypt becomes a prosperous, democratic country, or continues to straddle the economic backwater.
Egypt is in dire need of honest and dedicated leaders who will only think in terms of her people and will not foray the wealth of the nation for personal enrichment. Otherwise, this revolution will be a waste, a mere blip in the history of that once great and proud nation that led the human civilization in its infancy, but became a non-entity in the modern world.
The people of Egypt need to be vigilant and be prepared for greater sacrifices if the need arises.
