Egyptian President Mubarak stole billions from his people to build up his personal wealth and left them in poverty. For thirty years, America gave him billions of tax dollars to buy his loyalty because he was the closest thing the west had to a friend in the Middle East. We supported him and allowed it to happen. He took real estate, liquid cash, royal yachts and has $40 billion in cash and assets hidden away in banks around the world in Germany, US, UK, Switzerland, Scotland, Dubai, Madrid and many other places.
His wife, Mrs Suzanne Mubarak and two sons are also incredibly wealthy and the first lady has another $3 - $5 billion for her own personal use. His wealth has ties to large corporate US interests such as Marlboro, Hermes, McDonalds, Vodafone, Hyundai and others.
It is no surprise that the people of Egypt are starving and jobless. His police force uses violence to keep the people in line and we knew it was going on and did nothing. How many other puppets has the west been propping up over the years?
