Egyptians have they gain anything?, accept new puppets to exploit them, tyrannical system continues, the only way to truly liberate Egypt is by implementing Shari'ah, everything else is trash, replacing one trash with another is still constitute has trash, so stop duping yourselves Egyptians, if you are going to give up the most precious thing you have "your life" make sure it is for something noble.....

..First, what is a revolution? Sometimes I'm inclined to believe that many of our people are using this word "revolution" loosely, without taking careful consideration [of] what this word actually means, and what its historic characteristics are. When you study the historic nature of revolutions, the motive of a revolution, the objective of a revolution, and the result of a revolution, and the methods used in a revolution, you may change words. You may devise another program. You may change your goal and you may change your mind. 'A revolution is bloody. Revolution is hostile. Revolution knows no compromise. Revolution overturns and destroys everything that gets in its way.' (Malcolm X).

Who are America's new puppets in Egypt Hosni Mubarak has resigned as Egypt's president and transferred his powers to the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces. General Omar Suleiman, vice-president and former intelligence chief, is among the key retired or serving military officers on the council. Others include Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi, defence minister; Lt Gen Sami Anan, chief of staff of the Egyptian army; Air Marshal Ahmed Shafiq, the new prime minister.

Under the Bush administration, in the context of "the global war on terror", US renditions became "extraordinary", meaning the objective of kidnapping and extra-legal transfer was no longer to bring a suspect to trial – but rather for interrogation to seek actionable intelligence. The extraordinary rendition program landed some people in CIA black sites – and others were turned over for torture-by-proxy to other regimes. Egypt figured large as a torture destination of choice, as did [newly-appointed Vice President, Omar] Suleiman as Egypt's torturer-in-chief. At least one person extraordinarily rendered by the CIA to Egypt — Egyptian-born Australian citizen Mamdouh Habib — was reportedly tortured by Suleiman himself. In October 2001, Habib was seized from a bus by Pakistani security forces. While detained in Pakistan, at the behest of American agents, he was suspended from a hook and electrocuted repeatedly. He was then turned over to the CIA, and in the process of transporting him to Egypt he endured the usual treatment: his clothes were cut off, a suppository was stuffed in his anus, he was put into a diaper – and ‘wrapped up like a spring roll'. In Egypt, as Habib recounts in his memoir, My Story: The Tale of a Terrorist Who Wasn't, he was repeatedly subjected to electric shocks, immersed in water up to his nostrils and beaten. His fingers were broken and he was hung from metal hooks. At one point, his interrogator slapped him so hard that his blindfold was dislodged, revealing the identity of his tormentor: Suleiman. Suleiman's history should be kept in mind when considering statements he made yesterday. In a thinly veiled threat, he warned that if the protests do not end soon, there will be a coup and "dark bats of the night" will emerge "to terrorize the people."

Egyptians appetite for freedom not quench yet has they vow to continue protests One day after the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak, thousands of protesters have vowed to stay in Cairo's Liberation Square until their demands are met. Activists have demanded the release of political prisoners, the lifting of a 30-year-old state of emergency and the disbandment of military court. They say demonstrations will continue until the army accepts the reforms. Political groups are also calling for the formation of a government led by civilians. The Muslim Brotherhood says the military should hand over power to a civilian-led government. A senior Muslim Brotherhood official, Rashad Bayoumi, said a civilian government must run the country until free and fair elections are held. He also called for a constitution that guarantees freedom and human rights. Meanwhile, the April 6th Youth movement also called for the formation of a civilian-led presidential council to run the country during the transition period. Experts say the Egyptian revolution may fail to bring about reforms unless the military establishment is taken over by a civilian-led government.

"We have succeeded in a very important step which is getting rid of [President Hosni] Mubarak. But Mubarak for the past five years has not been governing this country. He's been sitting in Sharm el-Sheikh where he is now," Zulficar, a political analyst, told reporters on Friday.

Zulficar added that Mubarak "hardly ever comes to Cairo. It (Egypt) has been run by Vice President General Omar Suleiman who was vice president until a couple of hours ago, may still be. It was run, from security point of view and from a foreign policy point of view by Omar Suleiman. He is a close friend of the Israelis and of the Americans. Nothing has changed." He further said that the Egyptian revolution "is only the very beginning of a long process. We must be sure that we have civilian rule and not military rule. We must be sure that the remnants of this regime that are still in positions of power do not remain in these positions."
