Kind of surprised that Happy Hosni didn't at least attempt to send the tanks into the streets. Why would anybody prefer to spend the rest of his life in the south of France with his plundered billions than defend his throne even unto the scaffold? Can't imagine Hitler running off to Switzerland or Stalin catching a boat for the Bahamas. Guess tyrants just ain't what they used to be.

This is awesome! Egypt has set a pace for the rest of oppressed Africa, especially Nigeria. Can Nigerians ever, ever try this?
