Good Riddance !

Now that Mubarak has finally gathered the courage to resign from the office he has usurped for so many years with fixed elections, the demonstrators have every right to celebrate and to continue to demand speedy transition to a democratic government with free elections admitting all parties and guaranteed civil and human rights.
The military has NO mandate to govern, but only to ensure security until a new democratically elected government is in place. The pressure dare not be reduced!

The Guardian:

Hosni Mubarak: Egyptian 'pharaoh' dethroned amid gunfire and blood.
Critics said the president would never leave voluntarily but few political rights and falling prosperity forced an end.

The New York Times:

Mubarak Steps Down, Ceding Power to Military.
President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt turned over all power to the military, and left Cairo for his resort home in Sharm el-Sheik, Vice President Omar Suleiman announced on Friday.
