I would not put any stock on Mubarak's conviction. I believe his trial was for show only, while Ahmed Shafik, his last prime minister has now become the preferred choice of the U.S., Israel, and the Egyptian military to succeed him!

Here is a question that begs for an answer in the Mubarak saga: "If Mubarak was found responsible for the killings of about 900 protesters, why his prime minister at the time, Ahmed Shafik, was not? It is obvious, therefore, that the Mubarak trial was a "public show" to placate the demonstrators, while behind the scenes the U.S. and the Egyptian junta have been grooming Mubarak's prime minister to replace him, and continue his legacy. I suspect that Mubarak will be acquitted on appeal for lack of evidence after the presidential elections, and I bet that the Egyptian Generals will continue to have the "final say" on where Egypt goes from here.

The Mubarak era is not over in Egypt. It is just being re-crafted, re-configured, and retrofitted by the Egyptian Military around the U.S. and Israeli Middle East policies! I consider this process as the "re-packaging" of the Mubarak regime into "an Arab Spring box, and then re-selling it to the Egyptians!" Nikos Retsos, retired professor
