Hosni Mubarak to step down Thursday night;_ylt=Amy3EVboIHdysXksg8sg7Ses0NUE;_ylu=X3oDMTM4NnVvZXBvBGFzc2V0A2FwLzIwMTEwMjEwL21sX2VneXB0BGNjb2RlA21vc3Rwb3B1bGFyBGNwb3MDMQRwb3MDMgRwdANob21lX2Nva2UEc2VjA3luX3RvcF9zdG9yeQRzbGsDZWd5cHRhcm15c3Rl

Looks like major changes are happening in Egypt.

The situation looks to be evolving rapidly, and at this time, it appears that the Supreme Military Council is now in charge of the country, with reports surfacing that the newly-appointed Vice President, Omar Suleiman, is set to be named President Thursday night in a televised speech by Mubarak.

It remains to be seen what influence the Muslim Brotherhood will have in the restructured country.

I look at this, and I can't help but think "Iran 1979"-- I remember that extremely vividly.

I hope I'm wrong, but I fear I'm not.
