Bahrain February 21, 2011.

In nature an earthquake is followed by aftershocks. These can be as catastrophic in their effects as the original explosion.

The revolutionary earthquake in Egypt and Tunisia has sent seismic shocks to the most distant parts of the Arab speaking world.

Ghaddafi is staring into the abyss... One small push he will tumble in and good riddance!

Renegade Eye said...

Jams: I hope so.

He has been the most violent.

Nothing will save his skin now. Another victory for the Arab renaissance is in sight. Let it embolden those in Syria, Iran, Jordan, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia who feel 'reforms' are also necessary...

Gert: I agree.

The Saudi king just passed out $35+ billion in walking around money to his people. There's no way they'll ever rebel.

Wow, here we have a man who has always hated America with a passion, a man who has attacked American citizens and killed them, and also American military personnel, a man who has at various times vowed to destroy America and Israel.

And he is about to be overthrown by a crowd of insurgents made up to at least some extent of Islamic radicals, as well as some liberals and leftists.

Somebody really should check on Nancy Pelosi. The bitch is probably having a nervous breakdown.

Then again, maybe the old whore sees it as a win-win.

Gert: I found this. It verifies what Titan said. It's Saudi style.

Demonstrations are called for March 11th there.

I would venture to say a round of revolt is coming to Europe. Spain is ripe.

Pagan: See my next post.

Gert said...

Yes, Ren, I saw it on the news too.
