    however, I think that they now know that there will be a commemoration tonight, and tomorrow is only yet another day of demonstrations. There is a rather specific english expression for what's happening at the moment: "end game"

    •  but what is the end game? (5+ / 0-)

      I do not think the people will accept Suleman taking over, and Mubarak picking and choosing what parts of the constitution he wants to insist are followed or not is only going to increase the energy of the protesters I think.

        the "end game" is the final breakdown of the regime.
        Mubarak goes, more demonstrations, Suleiman goes and is replaced by someone from the judiciary, new government with some opposition, more demonstrations, NDP is extinguished, more demonstrations... you know the drill: Tunisia all over again.
