Two Countries, Two Regions, One Conclusion
This is quite amazing. Today at Hammorabi, an Iraqi blog, the discussion continues about the developments in Lebanon this last week and the Middle East region:
The spark ignited and the big ball started to role. The choices for the late runners are limited.
In 1990s the democracy in East Europe started in one place and spread like the electrical current to other places so quickly. Not so late after that the world discovered that the parts which remained under the totalitarian role represent the evil and danger which may lead to world catastrophe. The international community then acted to exterminate them.
Now the rulers in the Middle East are facing the same thing which happened in the East Europe. The changes are started and its an inevitable.
Today in a different region of the world, Roza Ottumbayeva, the leader of Ata-Zhurt [Fatherland], an opposition block in Kyrgyzstan (map here) in Central Asia gave this interview to the Turkish Weekly after the controversial elections in her country this past weekend:
Waves of “velvet revolutions” swept over Central and Eastern Europe and affected the Soviet Union in the late 1980’s. This tsunami was not to be stopped. We are seeing the second wave now. Georgia, Ukraine, Moldova – this movement cannot be stopped either. It is clear that this movement will continue in Kyrgyzstan…
It appears the Bush Doctrine may be reaching “critical mass”.
Two countries, Two Regions, Two Revolutions, One Conclusion!
