The Egyptian Revolution

  • Period: to

    The British Rule

    The only reason that Egypt isn't still under British rule is because Egypt protested against it.. sort of like the revolution we have now except.. bigger and less heard of. You see, England had a tight grip on Egypt with a very strict set of rules.. kind of like Mubaraks. This made Egypt used to being under control.. which made it only natural for Mubarak to step up after Britan left them in chaos.

    Friday of Departure
    "Egyptians did not settle for Mubarak's announcement of ceding his powers to Suleiman, and set up massive protests in many Egyptian cities. At 6:00 pm local time, Suleiman announced Mubarak's resignation and that the Supreme Council of Egyptian Armed Forces would assume leadership of the country." -Wikipedia By the way, the picture.. in arabic it says "The king has died" but that basically means Checkmate. xD ( Yeah, I got lazy on this one.)
