A link is provided here to the NY Times report on Mubarek's prosecution:
The New York Times is reporting that ex-dictator Hosni Mubarek, overthrown in a peaceful revolution by heros throughout Egypt earlier this year will be prosecuted for murders he schemed and masterminded while in charge of police units and military members, thugs who killed primarily when out of uniform so as to avoid their institutions being blamed for the slaughter of unarmed protesters in an extreme demonstration of cowardice and inhumanity. This clearly indicates that the political power of the heroic pacifist revolutionaries is strong enough to compel the interim government to announce this prosecution.

Like Murderer Mubarek, Other Self-Serving Dictators In The Past Century Have Included:




And Recently Killed Wannabe Thug Bin Laden

Resigned And Pardoned Felon U.S. President Nixon

Please, let's not forget that Ohio State happened in 1970, not very long ago at all and our dictators of the day were a second-in-command felon who copped a plea to greed charges for taking kick-backs as Maryland Governor, the first Vice President to resign in disgrace, Spiro Agnew and the first President (Richard Nixon-Republican) to resign in disgrace and avoid prosecution only because of a Presidential pardon from his hand selected successor and who had the nerve to imagine that his morality allowed him the privilege of sending our own heros overseas to fight for himself as President and the likes of Agnew.

Under Nixon's direction, his campaign committee, CREEP (Committee to Re Elect the President, if you're young, I am NOT making this up) broke into Democratic Party offices at the Watergate complex, burglarized the property and then Nixon covered up the botched felony. He resigned after naming Gerald Ford president and Ford pardoned him, then Ford left office a bit more than 2 years later. OMG. And 4 young unarmed peaceful protesters, college students, killed at Kent State University in Ohio by armed militiamen because of Nixon's endless and totally botched prosecution of an unjust war that he managed to lose, and lose big-time by expanding it illegally to Laos and Cambodia, and losing in those sovereign nations as well as losing South Vietnam. And more importantly nearly 60,000 U.S. uniformed military heros who died futilely because of him, and all those Vietnamese, Laotian and Cambodian deaths. :( Plus laying the groundwork for a horrible dictator to take power, and planting the seeds for the genocidal killing fields of Cambodian dictator Pol Pot. Mubarek can happen here again. Nixon was Mubarek and vice versa. Make no mistake!

Pol Pot
Enabled His Genocide

Mubarek Will Now Face Trial For His Crimes
I Don't Support Capital Punishment For Anyone
But This Cartoon Depicts The Position This Dictator's Own Actions Have Placed Him
And Members Of His Own Family In
(They Got Involved And Are Being Prosecuted Too)
He And They Face The Death Penalty Under Egyptian Law
Megalomaniacs Only Would Put Their Own Flesh And Blood At Such Risk!

The good news is that peaceful change is possible in 2011, a la Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Desmund Tutu, and Nelson Mandela. I take heart in that and in the fact that we have an inspirational and well-motivated family man of a leader in our own nation today in President Barack Obama. I thank God for that blessing today.
President Of The United States Of America Barack Obama

I was talking with my grandmother the other day about peaceful revolutions and the risks involved when trusting a government to be democratic. She was telling me about unarmed veterans being fired on in our nation's capitol when they went there to protest the Great Depression. We completely forgot about Kent State. Thank you for the timely reminder. I too pray for President Obama and a reign of peace. We are certainly seeing what can and is happening in other parts of the world.

Thanks Raley, beautiful comment. It IS Memorial weekend. And that there is a necessity to commemorate war dead at all is a catastrophe. People are being raped, tortured, and murdered in the name of the worst 'ism' of all today. My prayers for those in harm's way today imagining that they are defending my natural right to write what I chose via the 1st
Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, a remarkable afterthought to a devious document. And especially my prayers for the walking wounded and surviving family members. OMG! National'ism' has killed more people since Roman times, than any ism imaginable. Artists such as yourself and John Lennon inspire me when they write comments and simple poetry: GIVE PEACE A CHANCE. Pleeeeeze. Amen. <3
