Mubarak Seeks to Control the Chaos

Friday, 04 Feb 2011 09:38 AM

By Tawfik Hamid

The single most important goal of millions of the protestors in Egypt is to end the presidency of President Hosni Mubarak immediately.

Most people in Egyptian, regardless of their faith, socio economic class, or level of education, are united in this desire.

Mubarak said that he is worried that if he left now chaos will ensue. The reality is that he is the one who started this chaotic situation when he refused to leave power.

Egypt is reeling from the chaos, and will continue to suffer form the following:
  •  The expected collapse of tourism industry.
  • The likely weakening of the Egyptian currency.
  • The loss of trust in the Egyptian economy which discourages foreign investors.
These factors can significantly increase the already very high levels of poverty. Such increase in poverty can lead to increase in crime rates and increase in Islamic extremism, which can accelerate this destructive vicious.

If Mubarak refused to leave power it is likely that a percentage of those millions who are currently demonstrating against him will turn to the use of violence.

There is nothing that can stop this nightmare but the resignation of the president immediately.

The longer the president remains in power the more difficult the situation will become. In addition, the delay of intervention by the military, who were celebrated by the protestors in the early stages of the demonstrations, to remove Mubarak will be seen by the Egyptian people as collaboration with a tyrant and will make the job of control in the country that much more difficult.

The respect that the military have in the hearts and minds of the Egyptian people can be lost if they did not remove him now.

This respect for the military is fundamental to bringing stability back to the country.

The plan of Mubarak was simply to create this chaos so that he finds a reason to remain in power (to control it).
