To quote:

Any corrupt dictator can embezzle $70B over 30 years when the Suez Canal is in [his] backyard. Building/managing a conglomerate is much more admirable. Besides, US intelligence estimates the Mubarak family fortunes are much less than the Bush crime family. But what do I know? I don’t believe in capitalism anyway. - M.G.
