i wonder if dick cheney is listening.
Mubarak, speaking on his way back from the Gulf on Monday, said he discussed the consequences of a U.S. attack on Iran with U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney, who visited Egypt in January.
“I said to him word for word: ‘Listen to my advice for once.’,” Mubarak said, speaking the phrase in English. The remark was published in the state-owned daily al-Gomhuria.
as an aside, i was nearly shot about 6 years ago for taking some video of a vespa just outside the gates of mubarak’s presidential residence in cairo. if you plan to go to egypt, keep your lens cap tightly on near that place. being surrounded by 20 or so egyptians with ak-47s shouting at you in arabic is not that pleasant. i did not cave in and give up the camera though, even in the face of all that hardware.
