Sir-- Regardless of who wins the presidential elections, it will be followed by protests on the streets that will turn violent by the sore losers. But the transfer of power should be peaceful. Those who wish to be religious can be and those who are not are free to live as they choose. If the winning party doesn't govern well, they get kicked out at the next election, not at the end of a rope, and the new guys get their chance.
On the job training
Sir-- You just have to learn on the job. It will take time. It took us over 200 years and we are still learning. You'll make mistakes but learn from them. I hope you're fast learners. You have to learn to respect others' opinions and freedom of choice.
Sir-- I would think that at least 50 per cent of the Muslims are moderate, and with the 10 per cent Christian minority you would think the moderates would win. But look at Germany in 1932 or Russia in 1917/1918.
Sir-- I hope someone prevents fanatics like the Taliban, when they blew up Buddha statues in Afghanistan, from doing the same to Egypt's glorious archeological treasures.
Do it yourself
Sir-- If you are living in poor circumstances take the initiative to change them yourself. Don't wait for a leader to do it for you. You never know the heart of a man. He says one thing and then is easily changed by his own lust for power.
Enter the US
Sir-- The Islamists are power hungry and want everything for themselves. They are never satisfied. This is where the US needs to install another puppet.
Give it back
Sir-- The $70 billion Hosni Mubarak has should be returned to the US. This money was the aid that America was sending to the people of Egypt but as usual, the money didn't make it to the people. It went straight into his bank account.
Sir-- One ought to know that Mubarak has an advance case of cancer. I am not surprised that the shock of that trial and sentence would make a sick person even sicker.
The real Mubarak
Sir-- So many people know nothing of Egypt or the peace and prosperity Mubarak brought his people. He gave food subsidies to the poor, protected the rights of women, minorities and religious groups and made peace with Israel. Under Mubarak, Egypt was a haven for tourist and visitors. And now you have all the ignorant masses running around calling him a murderer and thief just because they heard it from the liberal biased media without even bothering to check the facts for themselves. I wonder why a whole country would revolt against such a good person. Maybe the country is mad while he is the only sane person left in Egypt.
On moral grounds
Sir-- Why not release Mubarak on medical grounds so he could spend his last days with his family? Why don't the authorities transfer him to a hospital outside prison? My God, this man was a president and should be treated and respected as such. Why doesn't the military council step in and set him free to go home?
