What is going on in the Middle East? First it was Tunisia, then Egypt, and then—well, I’ve already forgotten, but we’ve got Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Syria… There’s the whole Israel/Palestine mess, and Pakistan and Afghanistan, of course, and who else? Yemen? I know I’m missing some.
A whole lot of people being killed by power struggles all over the fracking place is what I see. The latest in Syria—eighty-five people on Sunday killed in government crackdowns, and at least eight more today despite the start of Ramadan.
Arab “Spring” they call it. Isn’t spring supposed to be about rebirth and renewal?
And isn’t it summer? Is there yet any end in sight?
