'March of a million people' in Cairo today against President
Dr. Lalit Kishore | 01 Feb 2011

According to military spokesman Ismail Etman, the army would not use force against the public since the freedom of peaceful expression was guaranteed for everyone.

WITH THE latest offers by Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak for defusing the politcal crisis having failed and promise of the army not to fire on the protesters during today's march, the ouster of Mubarak seems certain. Furthermore, the United States has rejected his announcement of a new government by erstwhile ally Mubarak.

It seems that with the "march of a million people" today the Egyptian  uprising was nearing a flash point.

Even the offer of a dialogue with  emerging political forces for constitutional and legislative reforms has not been accepted by the protesters.

According to military spokesman Ismail Etman, the army would not use force against the public since the freedom of peaceful expression was guaranteed for everyone.

The US State Department is trying to press for broad economic and political changes in Egypt to pave the way for free and fair elections.
