The Egyptian Supreme Military Council just issued a statement [UPDATE] [UPDATE II]

there's quite a lot of room for interpretation, but it sounds like the military announced that the protesters demands are going to be met... the people in tahrir square are pretty energized and the rumors are flying...

watch al jazeera here...

Sources tell NBC News that Vice President Suleiman to take over as leader

the bad news...?
Vice President Omar Suleiman will take over

yes, that's BAD NEWS...

Hosni Mubarak to address Egypt; protesters are told demands will be met

A general tells protesters in Cairo's Tahrir Square that their demands will be met, and the military says it is taking the 'necessary measures to protect the nation and support the legitimate demands of the people.' Protesters have been adamant that Hosni Mubarak step down.

please don't let the interim government be headed by suleiman...
