I am amazed and extremely impressed with both the protesters and the military; incredible displays of restraint.
The only violence I know of was perpetrated by Mubarak's thugs. I bet they are crapping big piles of pink twinkies right about now.
One of the first things the military must do to continue the goodwill they have with the people now, and show that they truly intend only to hold
power during a transition to the democracy the people are demanding is to end the 30 year "state of emergency".
The next step would be to establish an interim civilian council under complete transparency, that would begin the work on a new provisional
constitution. A referendum would need to be held so that the people could give their stamp of approval, perhaps under the scrutiny international
This would put in place a framework for elections to be held and the basic rule of law. Then the freely elected government could finalize the interim
That's all down road, but for now CONGRATULATIONS EGYPT!
