Gadhafi now appears to have gone the way of Mubarak, albeit with a lot more blood in his wake, and the revolutionary fervour is now spreading across, and beyond, the Middle East - there are even rumblings in China. Here is a brief round-up of these momentous events. Interesting times indeed.

Indeed they are interesting times. How long can people be downtrodden, starved, and left without hope before they turn and fight back; take what is rightfully theirs. I just hope that the people of these countries recover the billions of dollars of their countries' money that has been stolen by these despots and their minions. It will be interesting to see how many of them get brought to trial for their crimes against their own people. The people of these countries have been pushed into a corner; trapped, and now they are ready to destroy the real enemy in their lives, their leaders. Maybe this will lead to peace between the Arab nations and Israel.

It's not a coincidence and nothing to do with downtrodden people.

The international vested interests have decided to ring the changes - that's all; they are tired of Mubarrak, Gaddaffi and similar. If we could dig deep enough we would see who has facilitated these 'popular revolts' - and we'd probably be in deep trouble as well!

I can't see much of a change in China to be honest. They are used to and prepared for situations like this.

remember this?

China is just a diversion, all eyes should be on Iran. This runs deeper than a few 'people riots', and how easy they were to start given their source of initital communication should be a major concern of all governments.

we are lucky on IRAN at least bush's dad didnt screw up there by stopping in the first gulf charade
! and we dont have to go in again, afghanistan we didnt win last time the ruskies threw trilloins and lots of good me at the problem & it's still there,

Its bad enough that the USA have an atomic weapon, they have a shoot & them all LET GOD sort it! attitude..... IF you have served with them you know its usually the "friendly fire that kills the toms" now we have all and sundry with NO regard for life (even their own!) screwing the world it's a good job I am old! and only have a few years to be very afraid..........

well at least you know the UK government will be wringing deals to line their empty pockets (we took back some of their bunce in the expenses frauds!) did anybody think sending a mass murderer back to Libya was a FREE gesture, like for NO money? I see davey boy is in the mid east greasing palms as I write..... the world is still a fecking bag of poo.....
