Something's Up in Tahrir

Well, besides surprisingly peaceful (even joyous protests) that is.

There's a lot of chatter about how "something" is happening in the Square. People are cheering for some reason.

Edit: Apparently they thought Mubarak had acquiesced and stepped down. Not so much. Still, the protests appear to no longer be battles between pro- and anti-mubarak supporters. Supposedly the army is working to reduce the violence.

Odd, that. The chaos strategy was working. You'd think the military would continue standing by. Might reflect the divisions within the military. (And I've heard there are MANY.)
