They all went public more than once exhibiting the very same look, by the very same criterion, and with the very same arrogant attitude.. Waltzing around in a carefully designed powerful and mysterious appearance, molded in a full ceremonial military attire, offering a well groomed face show-cased into the Cap and the big dark expensive sunglasses, in a useless effort to hide exactly what I don’t know..
Pinochet, Espinosa, Ortega, Chavez, Saddam, Nasser, Aref, Assallal, Al Bashir, Saleh, Sadat, Assad (Hafez), Mubarak, Tantawy and many others; all were inspired by the Greek Generals immortalised in the famous black & white photo, back in the seventies, while assuming power and celebrating the successfully undertaken bloody Coup d’Étât which overthrew for few decades one of the well established European democracies and economies of the post WWII era.
That’s why I felt seriously alarmed watching Egyptian Minister of Defence, Colonel General Al Sissy, exhibiting an imposing look in full ceremonial outfit, while addressing the crowd, sheltered behind his Persol dark sunglasses, along with his shrewd smile, though standing in the shade and obviously he’s not a sensitive albino!!
And just same as the others before him, he grabs every possible opportunity, public or private, to assure the presents of being uninterested in a candidacy for the presidential office!! And this makes me very itchy, because they all said so, and in a given moment we listened to all of them declaring their duty to “accept the people’s persistent demand to assume the responsibility of guiding the nation into a better future”!
They all failed.. They all came short from fulfilling their vows for security, independence, democracy, prosperity, welfare and freedom.. And they all (even Morsi) turned into dictators serving other than their people.
What will he do?Pass On The Word.
