Well, that did not go exactly as expected, did it?
Hosni Mubarak, the Egyptian president, has refused to step down from his post, saying that he will not bow to "foreign pressure" in a televised address to the nation…
"I will remain adamant to shoulder my responsibility, protecting the constitution and safeguarding the interests of Egyptians [until the next elections]. This is the oath I have taken before God and the nation, and I will continue to keep this oath," he said.
Mubarak's comments were not well-received by hundreds of thousands gathered at Cairo's Tahrir Square, who erupted into angry chants against him.
"Not well-received." I think that's Eqyptian for "everything blowing up ape-shit all over the place."
Or something like that.
