Hosni Mubarak has stated, he will not run for re-election. Is this good news for the protestors? I think not. Mubarak must step down now to partially ameliorate the difficulties that are facing the Egyptian people. The masses have spoken, but the president still doesn't get it. President Obama has advised Mubarak not to run in the next election. He should have told Hosni to step down now. If this egyptian flame is to be extinguished, the first step would be for Mubarak to board a plane and leave his country. Some of the flames have already spread to other countries in the Middle East. First Tunisia, then Yemen, ad infinitum. We will all have to see how these events play out, but in the meantime, listen to the people, Hosni.
