So says Mohamed ElBaradei:
Egypt is disintegrating socially and its economy “is bust,” said Mohamed ElBaradei, the former director of the International Atomic Energy Agency and possible candidate for the Egyptian presidency.
“Right now, socially, we are disintegrating,” ElBaradei said on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS,” scheduled to air Sunday. “Economically we are not in the best state. Politically it’s — it’s like a black hole. We do not know where we are heading.”
Egyptians are embracing our Second Amendment:
ElBaradei said many Egyptians don’t feel secure as the country struggles to create a new government after former president Hosni Mubarak was forced from power by protests earlier this year.
“People do not feel secure,” ElBaradei said. “They are buying guns” to protect themselves, he said.
It’s a good thing we forced Mubarak to resign “yesterday” rather than working for a smooth transition which did not destroy Egypt’s economy and put the Islamists on the fast track.
