Democracy and Class Struggle says we are now entering a very dangerous period in Egypt, Mubarak is a massive victim of his own self deception and he his capable of any action whatever to protect his own self image - he his a very dangerous man at a very dangerous time.
The Egyptian People to protect themselves and their country must take immediate action with rank and file soldiers to pre empt any section of the military launching an attack on the demonstrators or use of "third party" thugs to justify "law and order" coming from sections of the Egyptian elite that has rallied to Mubarak.
Without military and elite support he could not make such an insulting speech to his own people. The answer to the elites is millions on the streets tomorrow. The situation before Mubarak's speech was volatile now in the words of one commentator it has become volcanic.
