Egypt, Cairo, Tahrir Square: winding down the protests

And it's not a strictly voluntary process:

Egyptian soldiers were taking down tents and surrounding the protesters remaining in Tahrir Square Sunday morning in an effort to allow traffic and normal life to return to central Cairo.

Some 30 protest leaders were reportedly forcefully removed by the army and were being held in an area adjacent to the Egyptian Museum, near the square, according to the report.
This can't fail to remind me what a great man once said:
We wanted everything immediately, instead we got nothing - but gradually.
I hope Egyptians fare better...
