It is time-- for the Free World's media to stand by the people of Egypt and call for thief Mubarak and torturer Suleiman's arrest, and the immediate handing over of power to an interim leadership. And they should call for the seizing of the tens of billions of funds Mubarak has stolen from the Egyptian people.

Mubarak is a criminal. It has been reported that he holds over $70 billion dollars-- money he has stolen from Egypt. That may make him the biggest thief in the history of the world, bigger than Bernie Madoff Mubarak Deserves a perp walk, not a send-off.
Now that the military has sided with Mubarak's appointee, Omar Suleiman the torturer, the generals who are defending Mubarak and Suleiman are traitors to Egypt and Egyptian democracy and freedom.
The Egyptians should offer the military leaders the opportunity to hold their jobs with amnesty if they stand with the people. Who would make this offer? It is time for the crowds in the street to reach some consensus on a temporary team of representatives. Those people will probably need to temporarily leave Egypt to be safe from Mubarak's reach.
It would be nice to see the OathKeepers, who promise not to obey orders to take action against citizens, active in Egypt, working to convince the members of the military to stand down in response to any orders to go against the protesters.
As I write, Mubarak and Suleiman the torturer are holding on to power and the army has said it backs their position that they will hold power until the fall.
It is time for courageous members of the Egypian Judiciary to bring charges of theft and corruption against Mubarak. (They'll probably have to temporarily leave the country to avoid arrest or murder by Mubarak's forces.)
