Egypt: The Revolution IS Being Televised!

For those who wish to follow developments in Egypt, which are changing by the minute, with Mubarek's reported departure, Al-Jazeera/English is providing the best coverage. As this is written, the military has said it is intervening to restore order (and we don't know what that means yet). A pre-recorded message from President Mubarek is about to be televised, as the national anthem is being played on loudspeakers in what is now called "Liberation Square." A continual live stream can be accessed here:

You can also follow developments on Twitter at #jan25 and #egypt (although the messages are coming in faster than they can be read).

Pray for the Coptic Christians in Egypt, that the violence being preyed on them by Muslim extremists exploiting the situation will stop, and that peace will be restored.

UPDATE: Hosni Mubarek has announced he will NOT resign, but will delegate some powers to the Vice President, and will not run for re-election in November. American officials who were already pretty clueless to begin with are "taken by surprise" with this decision. Early analysis from Allahpundit at Hot Air. Otherwise, stay tuned ...
