Today or tomorrow, Mubarak will step down

yeah, well, what the hell do i know... it's just a gut feeling...
Egypt's most prominent democracy advocate took up a bullhorn Sunday and called for President Hosni Mubarak to resign, speaking to thousands of protesters who defied a curfew for a third night. Fighter jets streaked low overhead and police returned to the capital's streets — high-profile displays of authority over a situation spiraling out of control.

Nobel Peace laureate Mohamed ElBaradei's appearance in Tahrir, or Liberation, Square underscored the jockeying for leadership of the mass protest movement that erupted seemingly out of nowhere in the past week to shake the Arab world's most populous nation.

"seemingly out of nowhere...?" you gotta be shittin' me...! this has been building for the thirty years of mubarak's reign and has been catalyzed by wikileaks, tunisia and dozens of other recent events and incidents... who does the associated press think they're bullshitting...?
