Looking at a despotic regime, one can see the writings on the walls. In the case of Mobark, he even specified a deadline. Of course, everyone loves to see a despot go. But I think a little later would be better than sooner, here are my reasonings:
1:A country that has not experienced democracy, will need time to come together. These are the freest of times for Egypt. Because so many people are out on the streets, security forces can not focus on any group, and those who should organize, can. To create an alternative to the only other existing organized group: Akhvan-O'l-Moslemin, but as important to start the seed for political parites.
2:The longer this struggle lasts, the more people can exchange ideas, be better informed, formulate their demands, work on writing a better constitution..... Imagine, if Iran's revolution dragged for couple of years instead of 6 months.
3:Sure economy will suffer, for a bit longer, but is it better to pay the price now, and get it correct? or leave it to the next generation?
4:As long as things don't turned purly violent, which the Army has promised as such, this will be good not just for Egypt but the people in the region.
5:Speaking of which, many of the Islamic Regimes sites, speculating that Mobark will announce his resignation, already were celebrating "Mobark leaving Egypt, on the day of revolution!" It's just good to see it does not happen on 22nd of Bahman. In addition it would have taken the air out of 25th of Bahman planned demonstration, in solidarity with people of Egypt.
Days of all despots will come sooner or later, best to think what will replace it and plan for that intelligently.
