Mubarak will go.

Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak will go.  Quite soon.  I expect he won't last next week.  I don't know what precisely will make him decide to give it up, but the most likely cause will be the army telling him his time is up.  He'll get asylum somewhere, perhaps even the US, temporarily.  Obama won't want to put him up permanently, but Reagan rescued baby doc from Haiti, and we would help Mubarak in his hour of need if it came to that.

Follow Gsquare86 on twitter.  She's a (very pretty) blogger in Egypt.  She's living it now.  She can see how this movie ends.

The Egyptian people have HAD IT.  And who can blame them?  30 years of autocratic rule, little economic growth, millions of unemployed, etc.  The people have erupted.  The army is a highly respected institution in Egypt, and they will certainly not go Tienanmen on the people.  And that is what it would take.  This protest is a revolution, it is real, it is not going away, and it will succeed, probably quite soon.
