Behind The Vail

WHO ARE OUR FRIENDS IN NORTH AFRICA AND THE MIDDLE EAST, OR DO WE HAVE ANY REAL FRIENDS OTHER THAT ISRAEL?  THE ANSWER TO ANY ASTUTE OBSERVOR IS OBVIOUS, BUT FOR A VARITY OF REASONS MANY IN THIS COUNTRY ARE QUICK TO SUPPORT THE MOBS IN THE STREETS OF CAIRO AND LIBYA AND SEE ANY CHANGE IN THOSE AREAS AS A GOOD THING. THIS IS LIKE WALKING THRU THE DARKNESS WITH A BLINDFOLD ON.  THE TENS OF THOUSANDS IN THE ARAB STREETS CHANTING FOR FREEDOM ARE IN ALL LIKELYHOOD BEING CONTROLLED BY A HANDFUL OF MEN HIDING IN THE SHADOWS, WHO WILL REVEAL THEMSELVES IN THEIR OWN GOOD TIME AND ESTABLISH MORE DESPOTIC REGIMES.  I SEE NOTHING NEW EMERGING, BUT MORE DEATHS ON THE ARAB STREETS.  IN THE END THE VAIL WILL BE LIFTED AND THE CHEERS OF THE CROWDS SILENCED!

All people are entitled to the fruits of democracy Ron, even if they choose the 'wrong' government as did the Palestinians in Gaza and the Germans who democratically elected Hitler and the Nazis.

We have all seen revolutions come and go, usually wrong; France and Russia spring to mind with their subsequent "terrors" but maybe such are necessary to move society onwards.

It is simply no use urging folks to emulate the American Revolution since that was in reality just a rebellion, replacing one group of gentry as rulers with another.

Friends in the Middle-East?

I would have to go with Kuwait and um ... hmm ... umm

Guess just Kuwait and Israel ... and Iran once the President starts supporting the disidents there.

Very true. Things like this don't magically happen. There are powerful people in the shadows.
