Mubarak's payback

No longer worried about his re-election or the need to appease the americans, Mubarak decided to stick it back to the US by announcing his support to Syria and opposing any efforts to alienate it. Egypt praised Syria's cooperation with the investigation into the assassination of Lebanese ex-prime minister Rafiq Hariri and warned that Damascus was a key player for regional stability. [...] "There should be no finger pointing to Syria or any other country before the independent report is submitted to the UN," Awad said. "It would be a serious mistake to make hasty speculation." "Egypt categorically refuses the isolation of Syria, calls for the stability of this country and warns that no new source of tension should be created in the region," he added. "The stability of Syria is the stability of the region". "Not to mention", he added " If you guys keep this up and remove him, the region will be running out of dictatorships that make ours look good and that is not good for this regime's stability. People may start demanding actual change and shit and we can't have that now, can we? This is what Pan-arabism is all about people!" Sigh..

Hosni is good at multi-layered deviousness.

You gotta be kidding me!! You actually believe that headline??
how many headlines has one read over the years that had no meaning or weight?
All that Egypt can do & will do is try to mediate & be a go between syrians & the International community, but thats about it...if the UN imposes sanctions on syria, egypt will have to abide by it!

Egypt doesn't care about Lebanon or Syria, lol! He only cares about what's good for his own power and that's it.
If Syria's punished he couldn't care less as long as it doesn't mean anything negative down the pike for him and his thug rulership.
Obviously, Egyptian intelligence probably know more than anyone else outside of Syria all of the details on how Syria murdered Harriri.

sorry to burst your bubble mike, but your exaggerated a bit there i'm afraid in regards with the egyptian intelligence knowing it all. & as for the thuggery, well thuggery is everywhere in the world with different levels & borders, even in the states they have heinous thuggery, a journalist was jailed there recently simply for not disclosing her source's identity, isn't that thuggery too!?

Previous anon, how in the *world* did you manage to turn this post into a criticism of the United States? Couldn't you have put that comment in a more appropriate topic? Maybe soemthing that had at least a little to do with America?
