Hearing now that a) the Egyptian army is taking control of the country, and b) Mubarak will almost certainly be stepping down today.
I know almost nothing about Egypt, but from what I understand, Mubarak's been running the country with an iron fist for decades. So removing him from power would be a tremendous step forward. But is it enough?
If Egypt remains under a state of emergency, is anything really changing?
If the military takes command and it continues authoritarian rule, is this really a victory?
Is the goal merely driving Mubarak from power, or is true democracy the goal? What is victory in Egypt?
When will the protestors know that they have won?
