Conflicting statements being released but this is the highest official, beside Mubarak himself, stating there will no mass change in the highest levels of their administration.

A transition of power to the VP seems to be unlikely and unsupported.

This is why, before you start your revolution, make sure you have a plan for who is going to replace the incumbent, and what sort of system will be used to legitimize it.

Im beginning to suspect we are all getting punked anyway. I am starting to think this was just a lovers quarrel between the military from which Mubarak came and Mubarak. That there is not going to be any REAL shift of power from the military to the people, but that they will put in place a sham democracy like we have in the US. Where you get to choose which Fascist puppet you have as a leader, but you dont get to choose NOT to have a Fascist puppet as a leader.

I've stopped watching this, it's a stalemate. I think he's hoping that the protesters give it up and get tired. Not sure if that's the case but it could be.

They still say on CNN TV that senior official told CNN that he will step down ..

Most likely it will all kick off again, possibly even more intense this time round.

hes leaving, hes staying.......the people of egypt need to rush in and remove him them selves. If a leader doesn't represent the ideals of his /her people then he must resign.
Americans should follow the lead of the egyptians. and not hang there heads. We, if any , should express our freedoms

Wow...this is a sure path to anger people and add kerosene to the fire. Send one message of stepping down and then rescind it?

I hate to sound cynical about it, but I kinda have lost interest in the topic of Egypt revolts.

Maybe sometime around last week I got fed up with it and decided it's taking way too long and that the issue is being twisted in every possible way.

For the last 10 days or so, every day, I walk by and see it on the news and I remark "This is STILL going on? Geez!"

It just looks like a disaster now to me.

Did you see the video of the van driving through the crowd of people at like 45-55 mph? It was bowling for humans, and he trashed about 15-20 people doing it. They flew like bowling pins. Pretty sick and twisted IMHO.

Why do I wanna watch this disaster unfold further daily? Do I like seeing innocent people massacred ? No.

WARNING: GRAPHIC AND DISTURBING VIDEO


This subject is starting to be a real drag, honestly...

Of the news channels covering this, I feel CNN has gone above and beyond my expectations. Yes, they formed their opinions and as well stated them, but they also put out the facts as they were so I could make my own decision. Well done CNN, especially Anderson.

Rush into where? Exactly - no one has a clue where he is.

He is probably deep in the Sahara somewhere in a hidden desert bunker or something.

They should just stop listening to him. Ignore him 100%.

And form their own new government without his blessing. They hate him anyway, what's the point of getting his blessing? Are they really so misled and enslaved they think he has to "Agree" with them about this?

Seriously this subject doesn't make any sense.

I think the revolutions have sputtered out somewhat outside of Egypt. Maybe I'm wrong but I haven't been hearing it mentioned like it was a couple of weeks ago. I feel momentum was lost not only for the opposition in Egypt but elsewhere also.

I have a strong 'hunch' that Mubarak has been arrested by the military.

I could be wrong, but let's watch and see.

Folks, this is Psychological Operations 101.

To diffuse the opposition population, you confuse the population. You say one thing, then turn around and say another. Do this a few times, let people argue, celebrate, get alarmed, ask questions, debate, etc....

Eventually you settle on your final message and by then everyone is just glad to know what the heck is going on and they forget why they were mad in the first place.

This is a psy op, straight up. American politicians do this all the time, and it seems to work for them.

My biggest question is why they didn't take Mubarak out in the early stages of the revolt?

IMO, Murarak has the cards due to how long all of this has played out.
