Protests are spreading across the Arab world like a wild fire!

Post by Alaskan Girl on Mon Feb 14, 2011 11:50 am

Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Libya, Palestine, Syria, Sudan, Tunisia and Yemen, a dozen countries in all, seem to have their hands full with 1,000's of protesters demanding change. While we all know about the domino effect, but the Middle East looks more like a popcorn effect these days.

This story makes it sound better organized than any of us suggested last week.

Sounds like a very well organized conspiracy to overthrow a bunch of governments.

Hmm. If it is well organised in that way then I know who will get blamed. I personally reserve judgement on that, but I'm sure many wont..

I'm really not sure if this is organized or spontaneous. Part of me thinks that it is part of the never ending chess game. (French Revolution style) But part of me hopes it is a reflection of the psyche of the masses (American Revolution style). Only history will tell.

Oops! I forgot, history is written by the winners.

It could also be a mixture of the two (i.e outside elements helping magnify the "reflection of the psyche of the masses").
