Whither Hosni Mubarak
I sense that long-time dictator Hosni Mubarak will not retain his power over Egypt through the current crisis. He is widely despised by both the liberal intellectuals of his country and the large Sunni membership within the Muslim Brotherhood. The street protests are apt to continue unless and until Mubarak takes the path of Tunisia's recently departed leader and flees, or he may end up taking the path of Nicolai Ceausescu, the tyrannical leader of Romania who was executed by his own people.
