Freedom in the Middle East

Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Bahrain, Syria, Saudi Arabia

The spread of these movements in these countries and what caused them will be debated, written about and analysed for years.

And here is what I'd like to contribute.

It's Bill Clinton's vision of globalism and interdependence, about which I've written about in our blog before, that could have foreseen this rise.

And if the wars of George W. Bush did anything, it was to hasten this all on by convincing the Middle East youth that all governments are hypocritical and corrupt.
