The Egyptian military has just issued "communique number 1". In military speak this is a coup d'etat/military takeover. Prime minister Ahmed Shafiq is quoted as saying "President remains in his position." I know I said it before, but Mubarak is finished. The situation has deteriorated so much with labor unions also agitating, people threatening to head to the presidential compound tomorrow the military fears a total collapse of the country. Either Mubarak voluntarily announces his departure or the military will officially take over.
For those not in-the-know, communique number one is infamous in the Arab world for announcing a military coup d'etat.
