We've been playing with this question for a while now, mostly as a joke, but sometimes an irrational fear grips me.
He is old and senile enough, and i'm sure millions are actively praying for his sudden death.
Normally I'd be happy, his death is no solution for Egypt but it's bound to shake things up and spark an interesting sequences of events.
But now that I'm in jail it's a scary thought. It would take no less than 3 months for the dust to settle and who knows what will be the result of this power struggle. Most likely no one but immediate family will remember us until it is over.
In my mind most people will continue living their lives normally. The huge bureaucracy will chug along just fine, but all security organs will be paralyzed.
In my mind no officer will wake up the next day and head for his post. Which means prison will be abandoned.
The problem is, our cells are locked from outside. And our only source of information is state TV and state TV is run by state security officers (just watch el beid beidak). What if in the confusion they don't report it?!!
We'll find ourselves locked for days without the door opening and without anyone explaining anything.
But the worst part is, this happened before. You see it's a common form of group punishment to just leave the doors locked and ignore you. They know prisoners store enough food for a week or two.
When Hosni dies it would take us a week to notice that something went wrong.
who knows how long it will take us to get released.
Screw democracy keep the guy in ice till I'm released.
