Egyptian army states that it will not use force against Egyptians


In its statement, carried on Egyptian media, the military said: "To the great people of Egypt, your armed forces, acknowledging the legitimate rights of the people... have not and will not use force against the Egyptian people."

Well that's a relief! Reading between the lines, the armed forces has politely told Mubarak that he might want to urgently start talking to the Saudis about what they've got in retirement homes. A dictator losing the loyalty of the army is no longer a dictator.

Yup, stick a fork in Hosni Mubarak, I think he's done. Assuming the U.S. state department can't convince him to stay a little longer...
