Cairo, Egypt -- Mohamed ElBaradei, main Egyptian opposition leader, cautioned of possible aggressive turbulence after President Hosni Mubarak declared late Thursday he would not quit power before September elections.
ElBaradei said, Mubarak "is gambling with his country" in order to stay at the helm, while talking to CNN's Wolf Blitzer.
He restated the message of his Twitter account, "Egypt will explode. Army must save the country now."
Main confrontation between the Egypt people and the military, which Egyptians conventionally suppose has been on their side, would be shattering, said ElBaradei, a Nobel Peace Prize winner and former director of the International Atomic Energy Agency.
