Mubarak should have proofread that speech.
I think Mubarak is watching us. He took down the server after reading this topic.
"The common man is the most powerful man. Long live the proletariat."
Reports have been replete with mentions of how the military is being hands off and cheered by the people.
An important fact is that the military ranks are filled with conscripts.
This is going better then I ever dreamed just yesterday.
It's already far far far far beyond Iran.
And yeah Mubarak made concessions without leaving? Good. One more step to him making more concessions then panicking and running away.
Also I updated the first post with the various changing currents in all of the countries.
I was checking a brazilian news website and they said that a revolt with 200 people happened in Oman. Doesn't seems serious though.
And this too (mediocre translation by me)
After more than two hours after the curfew enforcement by Mubarak, military vehicles passed through the center of the city of Cairo, nearby the Opera Park, and the militaries waved to the population receiving applauses.
thanks for letting me join the discussion zephos.
hmmmm.... Egypt, taken to the streets by storm after the friday prayer. Too much violence already happened so a peaceful ending is impossible. I just hope that mass bloodshed and theft doesnt happen and that this revolt stays on target.
also FUCKKKKK YOU IMBARRAK, YOU ARE ALREADY GOING TO HELL, SO FIX YOUR MESS
/me off to sleep"We will not be silenced, whether you are Christian, whether you are Muslim, whether you are an atheist. You will demand your god damn rights, and we will have our rights one way or the other. We will never be silenced."
Yeah I saw that Oman thing. It didn't seem big enough or upset enough to warrant changing my gay joke status. Since I really love pointing out how gay Quaboos is because of how big a secret taboo it is there. Also because no joke he dresses fucking sharp.
Judging from Twitter, it seems like the people in Egypt aren't satisfied with either Obama's or Mubarak's speeches.

A pretty awesome collection of pictures from over the past few days: http://totallycoolpix.com/2011/01/the-egypt-protests/
I really do wonder if simply doing a reform on Saturday would save him. He's hanging from a thin thread. I'm worried that he's taking advantage of time to wear on the people's patience/morale.
once i wake up tomorrow il post a full detailed script over what is happening.
Just heard from @RamyRaoof in #Cairo told me after #Mubarak speech army wouldn't let them into mosque where wounded r #Jan25
This makes me so proud.A young policeman who moments earlier had been smashing protesters with a baton was forced to fall back, dropping his shield and helmet as he fled. Two protesters of the same age picked them up, ran towards him and handed them back. "We are not your enemy," they told the terrified conscript. "We are like you. Join us."
