Medical sources tell Reuters there are 13 dead in Suez, 75 injured,


What strikes me from your post is how the whole country stopped when Laughner/Erad3 killed 6 people, warranting a statement from Obama on the sanctity of life, and his future statement on the need for more gun-control. Yet, when threatened with protests governments have shown repeatedly that they will not meet protests with civility, they will meet it with authoritarian force - and will MOW people down in the streets without a second thought.

These staged events and speeches to promote gun control are meant to protect them and give them the needed hours to evacuate and get the hell out of dodge, leaving the dead in their wake.

rueters us claiming egypt is in mubarak's safe hands, but al jazeera is saying they saw no such message by the president.

party headquarters is on fire, right next to Egyptian museum, housing priceless artifacts (fire seems small, no immediate damage to museum, however the two buildings are right next to each other).

I find it somewhat curious that the NDP headquarters building that has been burning for hours now has not collapsed down in it's own footprint like other buildings - building 7 comes to mind - have done in the past.

Rumours of the parliament saying "Egypt is in his safe hands" of the President...

But general Egyptian TV has not shown that? But rumours it could be one of the other satellite stations,

Which would mean i guess the military would be playing a larger role

Nile TV say the president will make some remarks shortly,

I expect him to step down.

The world is now telling him it's "time to go".

So even though I may be a bit ahead of myself here, it looks like he's done for.

From CNN:
Mubarak should prepare to leave

You and I both know that is a crock. These aren't extremeist muslims. They are a populous of intelligent muslims in which a majority is under the age of 30 years old.. They have even gathered around the museums to protect them from from lootrs. You must be a right winger. I think that ATS needs to rid itself of those like you who spew uneducated bile. I can't believe that you would even say something like that. There are plenty of muslims that would serve a good purpose in office and do a great service to the world. Extremeist only make up a small number of muslims and by the way I am not a muslim. Good grief!

Speach:

Mubarak claims today's demonstrations would not have taken place if there was no freedom in Egypt.

Mubarak: will respond to any threats that threaten public order

Muburak says he is on the side of freedom of each citizen, but won't let anything threat security of country

Mubarak: Political and social reforms will continue

He's saying he wants a typical society, a democratic society for Egypt. He wants the economy for all, and for it to be bettered. He's talking about creating universal programs for youth to protect Egypt's civilization. These demonstrations show, according to him, a desire to ruin security.
