Al Jazeera: Crowd in Alexandria heading to military base.
The Tahrir is shaking from the shouting. Protesters are chanting: "Tomorrow we will go to the palace in millions. Tomorrow he will have to kill millions of martyrs". He is leaving no other option. He is not leaving this country as one piece. His speach was "me me me all about me". His personal pride & ego are making hi...m removed from reality

I would hope that some cooler heads prevail and the understandably upset crowd stays in the square...
For them to lose control and rush for the palace would be an invitation for disaster.. A trap if you will, it was a taped speech, the guy is probably not even in the palace, and with an earlier report that the journalists who went into the information ministry earlier today witnessed heavily armed military in place with firing points ready. I would think that the palace is probably more hunkered down.
As long as that crowd can remain relatively peaceful, they win... If they start raging, they will be made out to look like the bad guys.. especially in Mubarak's twisted world where he thinks that he is one with the people..
Stay in the square. my .02
The BBC Paul Adams in Tahrir Square reports: "The mood in Tahrir Square has changed dramatically in the wake of President Mubarak's televised address. There is a deafening roar rising from the crowd with numerous chants calling for an end to the regime and "revolution till we die". The mood contrasts dramatically with the celebratory, almost party atmosphere that existed in the hours running up to his statement on television."
