Middle East - a wave

By now, every rationally thinking autocrat in the Middle East has gone from pissing his pants to crapping his pants.
The unrest shaking the Middle East showed no signs of calming Friday as leaders proved again unable to stem the fervor of protesters determined to overthrow governments and remake a region plagued by corruption, poverty and decades of limited political freedoms.

Protests that only months ago would have been unheard of have engulfed a region desperate to duplicate the toppling of regimes in Tunisia and Egypt.
If people were not dying in their fights for freedom, I would be able to enjoy this more.
