    This morning he was saying he would stay in power, well now he decided to quit power !!! About fucking time. Everyone was against him, even the USA was now asking him to quit.

    I hope the people continue to live in protest until serious change can be made, countries arent just ruled by people but ideaologies as well. I also hope that this will act as an inspiration to ousting tyrants all over the area and hopefully forcing the US away from the region entirely. The egyptian people are my heros for the day.

    I think democracy now coverage makes you think more than AP.

    Since the military is in the seat w/ vice president. organizers who are awesome to pursue such action are going to have a huge work of course including the people and those in solidarity with the struggle. revolution shall or should, for since 30 yrs of shit supported by u$a even... obama really didn't add to anything except his script being read as usual.

    I heard the military is in control until some form or person take place of office, they weren't there when the protesting went down, why are they there now. but my sources can be wrong.

    Yes, headed by the defence minister.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-12438355 - Egyptians Revel in President's Resignation

    Issues:

    -The army is currently in control. This does not bode well for free elections.

    -Obama has called the movement inspirational. However, more significantly, he has said that the change must be 'civillian and democratic'. I think these terms have Orwellian and disconcerting undertones.

    -Obama has sent Mike Mullen over. US' presence is all over this.

    This is great news and there is a lot of potential but there is also a real danger of business as usual... Interesting times.

    well one thing to keep in mind with military control in egypt is that they have a conscript army...

    Yeah, from what I've seen, the main reason that the military didn't try harder to keep Mubarak in power is because they're split, with generals supporting Mubarak, senior officers 50/50 and the lower ranks generally supporting the public. Mubarak stepping down is good, but there is still every possibility of the revolution going bad, like the French or Cuban revolutions.

    And this all happened, for the most part, peacefully. Though the threat of the crowd getting violent might have been a big factor.

    we had a celebration rally in the city on saturday, bit of a time problem too because we had to wait for the cops registration, so "only" 150 marchers did the march, some more joined the marchs end up at the citys central square with a whoopee, i hardly ever witnessed a more joyful and somewhat proud demonstration - amongst all those weekend shoppers...
    no reason to see everything in black, even with the military in charge now - Tahrir is still occupied and this is only the public expression that things in Cairo and Egypt will never be the same.
    the people outlasted mubarak - they know it, and are proud because they did - so they know they might do it again with his successors - again: it will never be the same for them.
    no doubt we and many of the egypt people will be dissatisfied with the coming reforms, watching "stability" slipping back into place - but they can't take it away anymore that mubarak had to go and this became kind of a fanal for the whole region too - like in Tunesia Tahrir was the first step and i think the people now see the way to freedom, self determination and peace much clearer than ever before.
