Now It's Yemen!!

Yemeni Protesters Demand End to Saleh Rule

Remember the fall of the Berlin Wall? The collapse of communism? The end of apartheid? It's amazing how long-standing structures of oppression can collapse so suddenly. I wonder if Saudi Arabia and Iran will be swept up into this? So much depends on the police and the army. If they side with the people then their regimes are done. If not, it's all just senseless bloodshed and brutality. Godspeed to the people of these ancient lands.
