We are seeing the iron fist that has oppressed the Egyptian people for thirty years. If the regime does not stand down, it is clear that we must make of them a pariah regime, like that of South Africa before President Mandela. Boycott Egyptian cotton and other products; divest of Egyptian securities; end foreign aid.

Mubarak is really a dictator. What use does he have to hang on to power like a child holding on to his candy. He’s done, and he should leave. The longer he tries to hang on, the more foolish he looks. Perhaps he feels he’ll be thrown in jail. That will happen if he gets thrown out.
