What is Arabic for “Après Moi, le Déluge”

That would seem to be the position of Hosni Mubarak, who is refusing to leave.

I don't see a good ending to this. The protesters will surely be out in force tomorrow morning. I suspect that a military coup to depose Mubarak is as likely as the other possible outcomes-- a revolution or a brutal crackdown. The military officers have been a favored class in Egypt and they may view their own ricebowl as being more important that Mubarak, who could go off to exile in France and live on his accumulated billions (if he doesn't accidentally shoot himself in the back with 30 rounds from a Kalashnikov).
