Tracy Chapman – Talkin’ Bout A Revolution

This is a massive insult to the Egyptian people and they are not going to accept it … tomorrow they will be out on the streets in their millions. — Aljazeera

Spending the night in Tahrir. Crowd has lessened since speech. People discussing plans for tomorrow. — Sharif Kouddous

Man tells me: “Mubarak is a military man, rigid. But with the enough pressure he will break”. — Sharif Kouddous

The rumours had been spread, the hated Hosni Mubarak was going. It must be true the BBC had said he was going, the head of the CIA said he was going, his cronies said he was going.

His delayed speech was waited for in silence. But it was not what was expected. He was to remain in power, Yes, some unspecified powers were to be handed to the hated VP Omar Suleiman, but he was not going.

It was as though a switch had been thrown. Carnival atmosphere one moment, anger the next.

The brief speech by the VP Omar Suleiman was an anti-climax in comparison. He told people to go home, to go back to work, to not listen to satellite TV.

What was going on? Why did the head of the army tell the protesters they would get what they want? Why did Mubarak cronies say he was going? Was it a ploy by Mubarak to flush out those who were not loyal to him so they could be eliminated?

Mubarak talked of not jumping to foreign diktats. It is his own people who are telling him to go.

Hosni Mubarak and Omar Suleiman have guaranteed that millions will take to the streets. They have promised to take the Presidential Palace and State TV. Who will stop them?

As of Thursday night, protesters are camped outside the army base in Alexandria. Tahrir Square is packed.

Millions were expected to take to the streets today after midday Friday prayer. Mubarak and Suleiman have simply helped to swell their ranks.

The call is for 20 million people to take to the streets!

Barak Obama has finally shown some backbone. US needs to cut off the flow of military aid. But the corrupt House of Saud has offered to step in and finance the Mubarak regime. Yet one more reason to overthrow the corrupt House of Saud.

What we are seeing is the shaping of a New World Order. No longer are people going to put up with not being listened to. Not only in the Middle East but across the world people are watching with interest.

St Valentine’s Day, the revolution starts in Iran!

As a week ago, we have to hope and pray that Friday does not turn into a bloodbath.
