The British newspaper World Tribune reported that according to Western intelligence, Mubarak’s health has undegone a sharp decline and he passed out last week before a scheduled visit to Saudi Arabia.
Well, I don’t know if these reports are true but what is definitely true is that Mubarak is getting older and his condition is declining, if not a result of an illness then surely the result of age.
What really pathetic about this situation is that the entire country’s future depends upon the survival of a single man. Two months ago when rumors about his condition spread across the country, it was said that foreign direct investment took a direct hit. It really sucks when you don’t know your country’s future and it sucks even more when it is tied to the existence of a person.
Mr. President, save us and the world the trouble and tell us what you have in mind. I am sick and tired being worried over this.
