Mubarak Offers Chaos or Him, Goes on to Stir Up Chaos

From Washington's Blog:

In order to justify staying in power until elections are held in September, President Mubarak said on tv that the people had to choose between him and "chaos".

As NBC notes:

President Hosni Mubarak announced late Tuesday that he would not run for another term in office, but whether Egyptians would allow him to remain in office until elections in the fall was uncertain.

In a 5-minunte pre-recorded televised address to Egypt that was translated into English, Mubarak said it had never been his intention to run for re-election in September.


Mubarak said the protests that erupted Jan. 25 "force us to choose between stability and chaos."

Soon after Mubarak's speech was broadcast, clashes broke out between pro- and anti-Mubarak forces in Alexandria.

Reports on the ground say that the pro-Mubarak protesters tried to break into the peaceful protest to start a riot, chanting "We want Mubarak!".

But the anti-Mubarak protesters did not take the bait.

The army broke up the clash and ensured peace by firing a couple of shots into the air above everyone's head.

As Al Jazeera blogs:

Clashes between anti-government and pro-Mubarak protesters in Alexandria. Shots are fired in the air.

Once again, thanks to President Mubarak for educating the world about agents provocateur and false flag shenanigans.

Egyptians didn't bite. They are smarter than many of us here.

By the way, even one of the MSM has started to report the truth - that those "looters and thugs" were Mubarak's men. The article by Washington Post even refers to a prison escape, which many in Egypt have said was done by the regime.
