    Ah, yeah you might be right about that. At first glance I thought it was something serious that had just happened.

    Tunisian Revolution and the Middle East

    http://www.jpost.com/DiplomacyAndPolitics/Article.aspx?id=252445 What's up with Israel lately? There seems to be a lot of stories about segregation and extremist hardline stuff going on over there. Kind of disturbing, although at least the authorities seem to be going after some of the crazies.

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/sns-rt-us-turkey-militarytre80421v-20120105,0,3564224.story I sure hope they have more on them than setting up websites. Is this a battle against old corruption, or the beggining of a sketchy crackdown on powerful opponents? (I thought the current main opposition were the socialists...which I don't think the military is part of. So maybe ths is limited to dealing with corruption and some sort of actual coup planning or maybe they're just overreacting....) Don't really know enough about the situation to say one way or the other, but it seems like something to keep an eye on.
