Hundreds of thousands of Egyptians gathered in Tahrir sq and downtown Cairo this evening to celebrate what they believed was the imminant stepping down by President Hosny Mubarak were dumbfounded, then outraged as Mubarak finally addressed the nation on TV. Though Mubarak concluded his address by announcing the transfer of his powers to the vice president, he repeatedly asserted in the course of the address that he will remain in power until the end of his term in September.

Chanting "down with Mubarak", "down with the regime", the protesters vowed to mainting their occupation of Tahrir sq and their demonstrations until they bring Mubarak and his regime down, once and for all. They expect to bring millions to the streets in Cairo and across the nation in tomorrow's Friday of Decision protest.

MUBARAK'S ADDRESS
Did Mubarak only or Obama too fooled US? Did only Mubarak fool his army and masses and the world audience or Obama too who was sure in his speech that Mubarak is leaving and the history is being made in Egypt. If like us all; Obama also felt that Mubarak has fooled every one in his speech, America must take some forceful measures to remove Mubarak form Egypt and handover him to the Hague Court for crimes against humanity charges. He has killed several opposition leaders and many Egyptians who have opposed his regime. This dictator should not make mockery of our prestige and reputation. Is some other powerful nation is behind him, who is giving him full support to stand-up to Obama?

Egypt
Egypt, like India, is under C. I. A. rule. After I showed in my press release dated January 30, 2011 that "a person of color cannot be the Americans' legitimate president", the U.S. vice president, Biden, who is white, called Manmohan Sigh about something rather than Obama because, as I showed, the word of a person of color has no value. The word of a white American is also worthless but in a different way; see my blog (see below) about the word of B. F. Skinner at Harvard University where "India's greatest scientist and greatest living Indian publicly tortured in Harvard seminar, systematically and totally starved for up to 3 weeks at a time, made semi-starved and homeless and even blind for years, kept under 24-hour audio and video surveillance as well as surveillance of communications and electrical typewriter and computer use, document creation and photocopying, etc., by satellite for more than past 3 decades, systematically harassed and in poverty and neutralised and robbed of his
