Now that the Egyptians have thrown off their authoritarian ruler, pro-democracy uprisings are threatening one of the worst dictators of all, Libya’s
Muammar Gaddafi. He is reportedly responding with machine guns. The king of Bahrain is in trouble. Meanwhile, mass protests have also broken out in Iran, Algeria, Yemen, and Morocco. Also in China, with protesters calling for a “jasmine revolution.”
This is surely reminiscent of the fall of Communism, isn’t it?
UPDATE: Gaddafi has reportedly fled from the capital city of Tripoli, as protesters are burning government buildings!
