This 82 year old man stares the Generals in the eye, the world, and the mob of hundreds of thousands in the streets, and says
“I won’t go” … and to date, there seems to be nothing they can do about it. He has impressed me indeed…time and time again, reports of his demise are greatly exaggerated. There definitely seems to have been a series of intrigues behind the scenes. Let’s see how it plays out.
Even as reports in the morning (our time) reported he had stepped down, and the apparent onset of a military coup, my last note indicated skepticism, and I thought his speech was not going to be a resignation speech.
Now, lets see if this worthless mob breaks into true violence in which case they will be crushed by the army, or if they wither away, their character not as strong as their 82 year old President.
