The ecstasy of the Egyptians at the Tahrir Square after Hosni Mubarak stepped down after 30 years, spoke volumes about his iron grip rule. It was not only unemployment and poverty which spurred public anger. It was also a deeply entrenched feeling in their hearts and minds...that the pride of their great nation which was once commanding respect from the whole Arab world had to function under the tutelage of the United States. While many Egyptians remember Gamal Abdel Nasser as a hero despite the defeat of Arabs under his leadership at the hands of Israel, Hosni Mubarak has gone down the history as nothing more than a puppet of the West.
