Which will inevitably lead to an 'all-bets-are-off' situation with a resulting crackdown on the protests by the regime. There will be absolutely NO winners if that happens. Not the Egyptian people, not the US, and certainly not Israel once there's a schism between the US and Egypt. And as much as I hate to say it, the protesters themselves probably need to back off on their demand for Mubarak's immediate exit because doing so also increases the odds of a eventual crackdown...while leaving him in place could actually improve the prospects for the democratic change they seek, because there's a good chance - being that despite all he IS a proud patriot - he'll want to improve his legacy with the remaining time he's in office...while you can almost bet that anyone else in line to power will almost certainly NOT make any sweeping changes.
