    It's my understanding that the Muslim Brotherhood was referring to an elected post-Mubarak government. It likely won't play a role in the temporary transitional government, possibly headed by VP Suleiman.

    It is likely the Muslim Brotherhood will say whatever it takes to encourage people to relax, and that they only want whats best for the freedom and economic health for the people of Egypt.

    The course of least resistance is what people will naturally follow and that's what they also want strongly to believe, The Muslim Brotherhood certainly knows that, just as many others who have wanted to gain power know and understand that. Do you really believe that if the Muslim Brotherhood said they wanted a Islamic State for Egypt and a Caliphate that people would support them? Or, for that matter, Barak Obama would ever have been elected? People just want peace, they want to relax, and thus it is easy for many, knowing this, to lie in oder to gain power.

    The Muslim Brotherhood might be ruthless, but they are certainly not stupid. I don't believe any Islamic leaders are stupid. They have human nature pegged.

    Mubarak taking his sweet time in speaking. Originally scheduled app 40 mins ago.

    a-j correspondents speculating the crowd may Not be satisfied with what they here.
    That he may have just been lifting emergency law.
    But delaying now as that would make the protesters even angrier.

    Than you are not a fan of freedom being achieved through non-violent means? Whatever the path the Egyptians choose to take, it is inspiring to see people stand together for a non-violent revolution!

    I'm not seeing the freedom. Could you be so kind as to point it out to me?

    Re: Riots erupt in Egypt as protesters demand end to Mubarak regime

    and the battles just begun.....i am very afraid for the people and what tomorrow will bring.

    my thoughts and solidarity are with the people of Egypt. mubarak has left them no other choice. it's not mubarak’s Egypt anymore, and regardless of what happens, it will never be again.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.
