YES!! Mubarak Gone!

It is absolutely riveting to watch what has been unfolding in Egypt. The next few days will be crucial to see  how the next set-up will be like. Nevertheless, lets celebrate for now! The last 18 days have been absolutely incredible. Its got to shake things even more in the Middle East. C'mon Libya!

What? Is he gone??
Well it is not important whether he has gone or not, what really is important is who (or what) is coming next?
Fingers (and spears) crossed ;-)

One step at a time...

Amazing that a 30 year dictator can be driven out by people. Actually the protest movement has shown a remarkable bit of sophistication. Lets see if they can keep it up - and I sure hope they do!

Oh - and Qaddafi should also start packing up his bags...

Na...he looks more vicious :-)
But I think he is more than a just a dictator. I don't know many Libyans but a friend from Libya gave a very good opinion about him. Look how successful his foriegn diplomacy was, he actually got freed a very high profile criminal from the scottish custody just because he was a Libyan citizen. That is the value of being a Libyan under his dictatorship, isn't? (But that is a very limited subjective analysis I admit). This is in stark contrast to the country that sends teenage soldiers to fight and die in rough terrain in a morally failed and useless war. What do you say?
