    So correct TM.... unlike most others here.... you were never blinded by political fantasies.

    Yes, as I said, there was no economic component / solution developed in the protests, which failed to bring the Arab working class into organised action, and there was a counter revolution.

    I'm not in the least bit surprised that there is a NATO connection with the London attacks. You should read the "Hot Press" thread here on Libyan connections.

    The crisis created over Qatar is a reminder of the role of Al Jazeera, a Qatari operation, in 'Arab Spring". Qatar promoted the Muslim Brotherhood, and democratising liberalism, as opposed to military juntas and Saudi backed Salafists.
