    Mubarak wants to step down, but isn't yet for fear of the Muslim Brotherhood taking over if he does.

    If protesters don't disperse they WON'T USE FORCE AGAINST THEM.

    Seems like he's still staying in office for now.

    More news coming.

    Yeah, that's the sticking point...Making sure those who have hostility toward Democracy and/or want to destroy Israel do not end up in charge.

    He's using the Ikhwan as an excuse to stay in power. They aren't attempting a takeover (and would be promptly put down by the military if they did) and are among the many individuals and groups demanding a transitional unity government.

    Demacracy can be bad, it depends on what the majority want.

    The brotherhood sounds like a mafia group or something with their own ambitions aside from democracy.

    Perhaps a new boss same as the old boss scenario?

    The Protesters got what they wanted. He'll be gone in September. They won. He's just speaking reason now. Their Economy really is taking a big hit with this chaos. They won,so now it's time for them to go home and get back to work. I understand what Mubarak is saying. No need for more protests. That's just my take though.

    Yeah, the protestors should act like Americans putting civility before corruption.
