Thomas Freidman today...

..had a nice op-ed peice on the Middle East. It was rather encouraging and brings up an interesting point with regard to the impact of technology on politics in the ME. To wit: the introduction of cell phones, twitter, IM and the like have brought about "horizontal" communications. No longer are people dependent on information being sent from the top-down.

The other factor Friedman mentioned was the space that the US and the UN has provided for populus movements to survive and grow.

I am anxious to see what happens in Iran over the nest two days. What a Face
