Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out he was poisoned.

Well that's that I guess.

Ironbite-what'd he do again?

He was a president for a very short while. During that time he announced that the restrictions on the president's power (put in place by the military due to previous tyrants) no longer concern him and then he fired judges and started doing whatever he pleased regardless of the legality. By the time he had usurped all state power to himself people decided that they had had enough and he was arrested.

Egypt went through several presidents in a short while after they ousted the one who had ruled for decades (also as a tyrant of some decree.)
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Replaced Mubarak, then decided this whole dictatorship thing isn't too bad after all.

Just goes to show that sometimes, a "revolution" just means ending up back where you started.
