I was impressed with what I have seen happening in Egypt since Mubarak left. I only hope it continues! Only a day after the ouster of Hosni Mubarak, the Egyptian military banned top officials from travelling outside the country to ensure that former presidential loyalists don’t flee.
The ban came into effect immediately, an official announcement from the new regime said as Army removed barricades and barbed wires from around the Tahrir Square and the Egyptian capital limped back to normalcy after 18-days of turmoil. Thousands of volunteers are happily busy cleaning up "their" Egypt. I am so psyched like you I can only hope this continues as an official statement said that officials could only travel with permission from State Prosecutor or the Armed Forces.
The new move to put restrictions on movements of Mubarak loyalists came as mystery continued to surround the whereabouts of the deposed president and his family.Supposedly Mubarak is still in Sharm El Sheikh but no one admits knowing and all the while the head of the military spoke there was no a mention of Mubarak. Egypt has already moved on! Military regime bars officials from leaving Egypt
Egypt's peoples military also went on to immediately announce that the next leadership will not be the military but will be elected. People en masse are sweeping up the streets and cleaning up debris from the 18 day protest as they anxiously await details of the handover and the forming of their new Democracy. With the close ties between Egypt's Generals and our Military leadership I have hopes this will happen.Egypt's military pledges civilian handover
Mubarak's Swiss Assets Frozen
The Egyptian military has said it will respect all international treaties, thereby confirming its accord with Israel will remain intact, after Hosni Mubarak's resignation.
In closing: Switzerland had also announced immediately that it was freezing all accounts of Mubarak's his family and his cronies to try and recapture as much of the reported 70 Billion in stolen Egyptian money. The military also announced they they will honor all treaties including with Israel to ally Israel's fears. I really am psyched that up to this point Egypt's military appears to be doing all the right things for Egyptians, their new Egypt, and to ally all fears of the world that they have ulterior motives. Like Egyptian's we will watch and hope!
