Egypt: Mubarak Steps Down... Viva La Revolución!!

YEEEEEEESSSSSS! MUBARAK HAS LEFT!
I cannot believe that I lived to see this day… Allahoma laka Al 7amd… Ta7ya Masr! Ta7ya Masr! Ta7ya Masr!

On Fri 11Feb11 at 6:03PM (Cairo Local time) the Egyptian Vice President announced that Mubarak has stepped down.

Just 24 hours before it when everyone thought he would actually step down, he stunned the whole world by not stepping down (even the CIA driector thought he was going to step down). He decided to only delegate his powers to the VP.

People in Egypt (and diaspora) were outraged. Massive demonstrastions took place all over Egypt (estimated 20 million took the streets).

And the THIS happened :)

At about 8:30PM (Cairo Local time) an Army official came out on national TV and saluted the martyrs of our great revolution...



I now leave you with President Obama's excellent speech about the Egyptian revolution and the stepping down of Mubarak (released around 10:30PM Cairo local time)...



Mood: PROUD TO BE AN EGYPTIAN :)
