It's a foreseable one, and not enough for protesters in rapture, but a significant one. The old man's ego is huge. However, to demand exile from him isn't fair. Even if tried and convicted for whatever crimes, he should be allowed to stay in Egypt. Besides, dumping ex-dictators in Europe doesn't cause the countries who suffered them to learn how to deal with them. The Egyptians who are in Tahrir square should think it again and see it as their goal to bring Mubarak to court, as an Egyptian citizen, under a free, fair, independent Egyptian judiciary. To shout for him to leave to golden exile is for banana countries. Egypt deserves better.
