Is Syria the Next Libya?

recently the streets in Syria have been looking like that of Egypt during their spring revolution. hundreds of thousands of protesters (for the most part) simply demonstrating an intense want for change. The government forces have been reluctant to do much however. small skirmishes kill a few people here and there but there is no war yet. Soon, the Syrian government will be forced to change or break out into civil war like that of Libya's government.

Although it seems Syria has been somewhat of a back story amid the US debt crisis that seemed to engulf the world as it is unwary weather the US holds the world on its shoulders. But the revolution is very real, and lt us not forget that almost everywhere in the Arab world is coming to this crisis. We must not forget about those fighting for their simple liberties. At least the UN pays attention to this... for once.

Also, Mubarak is on trial, I'm sure h's not going to see the light of day for quit some time... or ever again, you know how revolutions go... so much glory...

Politics not as usual in Canada

For those of you whom live in Canada, I urge you to vote. and, make an educated vote. Exercise your right that people overseas are dying for. take a day, research who YOU want to represent you. Voter turnout is about 50%... people don't believe they can make a difference, but that 50% is making a difference. Those 50% are dictating who rules you and I. Please, go out there and vote, even if you make up your own candidate to show that you don't approve of any of them.

Great... Elections

Looks like Canada is going to have yes, another election. barring any unforeseen circumstances it is quite possible that Canada will vote to have another federal election. personally I believe it will only serve to put another Harper administration in for another few years while costing multi-billion dollars. Not many people like Harper, but more people like him than any other single party out there, which in reality is sad. If you are going to vote in this I advise you to vote for a party that actually has a chance of winning as to not dilute the voting power of the country. and hey, maybe a new government will be put in place, who knows. that means no voting for the Quebecois. they're not going to separate, deal with it

The Real Africa

Now i know everyone has heard a lot about Africa and seen movies chronicling what life is like in the Savannah. But I bring to you... the real Savannah. Don't let the zebras striking appearance fool you, it is a cold blooded carnivore and top of the food chain in Africa. all the photographers and journalists that have seen one with their bear eyes have been killed by these wild beasts. Until now. without further adu, i ring you a photograph taken only hours ago, of the real Africa.

The Last Month in Review

Since i left a lot has been happening in the world. especially in North Africa and the Middle East. as everyone remembers the Egyptian revolution was successful, and as many prominent politicians described, this has caused unrest in the Arab world. how much unrest exactly? well basically every Arab country (excluding Iraq) has had some form of popular dissent. Libya is in full out Civil War with the government.

From Algeria                                                                                               To Iran

A wave of popular support not only for human rights, but for democracy. this is no ordinary Arab revolutionary movement, from all sides it seems completely secular. not only secular, but... peaceful in nature

Of course Libya's situation has arisen to the status of Civil War, not because of the protester's accord, but because the government refused to step down and openly fired on peaceful protesters. I urge everyone to vote for the passing of a no-fly zone over Libya. Libyan planes are actively bombing pro-Democracy protesters. http://www.avaaz.org/en/libya_no_fly_zone_1/?cl=974484304&v=8575. It's the least any of us can do.

Major protests in Iraq seem a dim light of hope for a peaceful transitional government in a country that has been ravaged by war for a decade.

Popular sentiment has caused uprisings in a whole slew of countries, not only for these countries in turmoil. people are starting to realize, the people can do something about their situations, they can cause change.

Like the workers standing up for their benefits in Michigan

It is not clear what the months ahead will be like, but this is clear. Shit is Fucked Up. choose your side carefully

Beautiful country
