Egyptian Army Steps In, Mubarak To Resign.

In breaking news from Egypt, the army appears to have quietly assumed control of the government, and announced that Mubarak will resign.

AJE is reporting that The Supreme Council Of Egyptian Armed Forces has met, with the Defense Minister chairing the meeting, rather than Mubarak or his new VP Suleiman. In Middle Eastern politics, this is enormously significant.

Mubarak is scheduled to address the nation on live television very soon, so I'll refrain from further speculation.
