The regime is obviously trying to buy some time in the hope that the numbers of demonstrators dwindle--so they can exhaust the movement and eventually try to deal with a more contained force.

From the point of view of the movement, I think there's a sense of trepidation and uncertainty among many people, including at Tahrir Square. Everybody understands that the standoff can't continue indefinitely.

So there's a discussion taking place now about to how to step up the pressure on the regime and how the movement can continue to push for its demands. One discussion, for example, is the possibility of a march from Tahrir Square to the Information Ministry--or, as was proposed previously, a march toward the presidential palace.

When Mubarak goes, terrible truths will be revealed. The world, as they say, waits. But none wait more attentively, more bravely, more fearfully than the young men and women in Tahrir Square. If they are truly on the edge of victory, they are safe. If they are not, there will come the midnight knock on many a door.

"Instead of occupying a useless square where you are just a sitting duck, you need to occupy the seat of power and the means of communication, and do it immediately."

As it seems to me, there are more than enough people on the Tahrir Square. Try to delegate! Try to surround key point government media and telecommunication buildings and to occupy them peacefully! Act now, while still possible, before being killed tomorrow or arrested later on!

Add.: Too late?

Tens of thousands of protesters again thronged Cairo's Tahrir Square, but for the first time there was serious tension with the army, whose role in tightening security in the city and in arresting activists has dashed hopes that it was turning against the regime.

Demonstrators on Tahrir Square said they felt betrayed by the compromises now apparently on the table. "Executive authority is still in Mubarak's hands," said Yusuf Abdul, an engineer. He said that the key elements of power still lay in the hands of the regime.

Human rights groups claimed there was military police involvement in the arrests of thousands of people including activists and foreign journalists in recent days.

Ahmed Saif al-Islam Hafez, a prominent lawyer, was one of 30 people rounded up at the Hisham Mubarak Legal Centre, a group that has played a key role in documenting the protests.

He said during his arrest he was told by a senior officer that Hosni Mubarak was seen as having "made mistakes" but that the army would never let a former leader face "this kind of end".
