Mubarak Is 'Clinically Dead': Should They Pull the Plug on Him?

Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was been declared clinically dead. The 84-year-old politician reportedly suffered a stroke Tuesday morning, just a few weeks after receiving a life sentence for the deaths caused last year by Arab Spring protests against his prolonged presidency. Within hours, Mubarak was pronounced clinically dead. He's still on life support, but not likely to recover.

Initially, Reuters was told by the military that they could not use the term "clinically dead" because he was being kept alive. One source described his condition as "completely unconscious ... using artificial respiration." However, it was enough to elicit "cheering and fireworks" in Tahrir Square, USA Today reports. Does it sound like Mubarak can be put to rest, or should doctors keep working on him?

    All I think I know about foreign affairs is from the news. And, of course, I know that it is biased. So perhaps you are correct? Don't know.

    Where in the world does everyone get the idea that Mubarak was a terrible evil? He was the best Muslim friend we had in the region. He kept the peace in the largest Arab country in the world. He wasn't fanatic about butchering Israel. Women's rights in Egypt was beginning to bud. Coptics (Christians) were allowed to live without terrible government harassment. He kept the Muslim brotherhood at bay -- just watch what happens now!! If he had a fault, it was amassing huge wealth the perhaps should have been spent on the poorer segments of the population. But it's also true that his huge wealth may have given him the influence to keep the peace. I wish he was still in office.

    Deposed dictator, 84 years old, undoubtedly has a stroke from being under immense stress during his detainment, trial and sentencing.
    Do us all a favor, he's not coming out of it, no point in really keeping him alive anyway.

    This is suspicious. He was removed from power and suddenly is clinically dead. Sharon had a stroke. Kenneth Lay, Enron founder, had a stroke. It's all too convenient.

    death might be to easy but that is a matter between him and God that is not our place to keep him on life saport that is out oof our hands God has the final judgement of us all.so keeping from his jd=udgement day is really rewording him in a way ian't it.

    I think he is deliberately put into a coma or it is a simple lie so the islamists don't have to explain why they killed him.
