BBC - CIA chief saying likely that Mubarak to leave this evening.
Yea, when he left the country, he will take his cash with him, and then he will be lying in the sand of Jamaika and smoking some weed.
BBC - Info Minister says he is not going, the PM says he is. Secy General of the ruling party he thinks he will speak to the nation tonight and that he is transferring power to Suleiman....seems very fluid....will he, won't he?
Good for the protesters. Now the dangerous part.
I hate the ones from both sides who think secular society should be a reflection of whatever superstitious and oppressive nonsense they believe in.
We have no interest in you puny man-animals, except as food.
And if someone offers you a Full Jihad Jacket, chances are it will explode.
If Suleiman takes over with military backing, the Israelis and Saudis win-at the expense of the Egyptian people.
Oh, so now you speak for the entire Confederacy?
As opposed to the current martial law, army in the streets, and Mubarak's thugs‽
There's nothing in the streets
Looks any different to me
And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye
And the parting on the left
Are now parting on the right
And the beards have all grown longer overnight
I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
Don't get fooled again
Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss
BBC reporting that the speech for tonight has been RECORDED for transmission later tonight and the presidential plane has left...unknown as to destination.
Egyptian journalist on BBC saying people want a NEW constitution and a modern, secular state.
Who says that he's planning to leave Egypt? Maybe he's got some crazy-ass plan of being the power behind the throne and pulling the strings of the "new" government?
That would not end well.
no further reports that he has left...now state TV showing "live" pictures and reporting that the speech will be at 8pm GMT -- just reporting what i'm hearing
it's all al jazeera's fault -------> http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110210/ap_on_en_tv/ml_egypt_al_jazeera
If Mubarak leaves, but all of the autocratic ruling class stays in power, it will be a hollow victory.
Who are the people that can step up and draft a new constitution that guarantees democracy and civil rights? Certainly not the
same people who have been crushing any such aspirations for the past 30 years.
Dark bats of the night? CIA_ Black_ Helicopters
They can't change the government and the constitution at the same time. Use the present constitution and turn off the "emergency powers" that Mubarak has been using for ages.
Constitutions never guarantee democracy and civil rights. There are always loopholes that an autocrat can use. People paying attention and guarding against it are the guarantee.
watching live footage streaming on bbc news, it's like a carnival, lots of people cheering/whistleling/waving flags. This is their mood at the prospect of Mubarak fucking off.
Have you guys seen Al Jazeera English? It seems quite a decent news source. Until now, I had only heard of AJ through Bin Ladens angry videos, I kinda assumed AJ were BFFs with Al Queda
My favourite UK radio host even says that Al Jazeera is betterer than BBC news etc.
Sounds like u drank of the MSM koolaid.
that's largely because they've poached all the BBC staff! but they are the one that all the arabic leaders are pissed at...because they do this in english but naturally also in arabic.
Slightly OT: but this cat is so placid. The dude is just crossing his arms and the kitty catty is just perched there.
/r/ more photos of No Mubarak Cat
Jon Stewart showed this pic on his show and asked what will it take to get mr pickles to put his sign down.
epic domino fail guy, they should go the other way
frank gardner of the bbc (he's the security correspondent who was blown up in saudi) he is the one reporting that there are rumors that mubarak is on a plane.
Uninstalling dictator ... 99% complete ███████████████████████████░
this guy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mamoun_Fandy was just on the bbc. he said that if mubarak gives power to suleiman it's back to square one...however, if he hands over to the military the constitution goes out the window and that means a new one can be written....the military has apparently told the protesters "all your demands will be met."......i'd like to be optimistic....foolish perhaps, but....
UK people get a message saying we can't view videos for copyright reasons. same with colbertnation.com. *sigh*
Live coverage from Al Jazeera : http://www.youtube.com/aljazeeraenglish?feature=ticker
EDIT: He's talking right now.
If I heard it right, he won't be stepping down until September.
I have a feeling that people won't like that.
He just announced that he'll change certain constitutional laws regarding presidency.
EDIT: Emergency law will be canned as soon as 'order has been restored'.
People are waving shoes around. They are really pissed off.
