Analysis of Hossie Boy's speech to the revolting Egyptians.

Hosni Mubarak
On 1 February 2011 Hosni Mubarak addressed the revolting crowds in Tahrir Square with a totally unacceptable speech.  Here is an analysis of that speech by Toxic Drums.  It is not a political "read between the lines" analysis of even deeper silliness.  It is more a "stating the obvious - the emperor has no clothes" kind of analysis.  It is a little fun too and is meant both seriously and as support for the dissenting voices in Egypt (that'll be all of them except Mubarak and one or two sycophants).
The speech is verbatim and is in Egyptian Gold because Mubarak deserves a gold meddle for utter stupidity.  The comments are in Egyptian Green.  What's that?  Well it's like Soylent Green but sort of Egyptian.
"I talk to you during critical times that are testing Egypt and its people which could sweep them into the unknown."
A veiled threat.  Ironic suggesting that these "critical times" could sweep Egyptians into the unknown when the suggested alternative "known" future is with Hosni Mubarak as a Western Imperialist puppet dictator using oppression and violence, deception and intimidation to keep the rich rich and the poor poorer.
"The country is passing through difficult times and tough experiences which began with noble youths and citizens who practise their rights to peaceful demonstrations and protests, expressing their concerns and aspirations but they were quickly exploited by those who sought to spread chaos and violence, confrontation and to violate the constitutional legitimacy and to attack it."
This kind of pretence is very typical of inside-out people.  It is an attempt to give someone a chance to pretend they have always been good friends.  It is a kind of last chance thing.  It's a device used frequently by bullies and mafia types.  It is rationally hollow.  If the youths and citizens were so noble then Mr Hosni should obviously give them due respect.  But it is like saying some of your best friends are Jews as a prelude to anti-Semitic remarks.  A lovely irony here is the reference to "those who sought to spread chaos and violence" since it appears it was members of the security forces under the direct control of Hossie Boy.
