Egyptians celebrate as Mubarak steps down

Egyptians are celebrating in the streets as Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has decided to stand down.

For those looking for intelligent analysis, I am sure there are blogs capable of offering this. I have been at CPAC and am absolutely out of touch with much of this world this weekend.

Like many of you, I am going to process all of this information and see what happens on Monday.

As for now, I truly believe this is a positive development. Naysayers will worry that the people taking over for Mubarak will be far worse. While this is a reasonable fear, for now let’s just allow the Egyptian people to enjoy this historic moment. They deserve this.

They are dancing in the streets, and quite peacefully at that. To them to feel bad makes no sense. They feel good, and they should.

If this goes well, other dominoes in the Arab world could fall in a big and fantastic way.

Tough days lie ahead for the Egyptian people, but today is a good day.

Congratulation Egypt. At this moment, you are free.

May your liberty be forever.

  1. Well said. This is an amazing time in Egypt. For anyone who follows geopolitics and history, this is utterly fascinating.

    While some other Arab states may feel a wave of change, for the oil rich monarchies it will mean nothing. The dominos will stop at Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, etc. Americans don’t care much about that. We should.

    CPAC will be greatly overshadowed by this – but that could be a good thing for them. They have some serious housecleaning to do, and it’s a lot easier to do that if it’s not plastered all over the news. Republicans like you should take advantage of this media distraction and clean some of the crazy junk out of your attic. By the way, I’m not just talking about the libertarians… (eh-hem… Bachamnn, eh hem…)
