The Arab Autumn
This is a wonderful picture of the recent protests sweeping the Middle East. In Amman, Jordan, over 100,000 citizens are protesting the monarchy. Despite being one of the more moderate regimes, Jordanians want freedom. They don’t want a secret police. They want policies in line with their own beliefs, not those of Washington, London, Brussels or Jerusalem. As Sec. Donald Rumsfeld once said, “Democracy is messy.” Hopefully it won’t get too messy. The last thing we need is civil war in The entire Levant and Iraq.
