One thing about the wind of change that is sweeping through the Arab world, it must have a lot of people in the West and elsewhere turning to Al Jazeera (http://english.aljazeera.net/) as they find other news outlets somewhat lacking. Interesting that some of the despots on the offensive turn to jamming Al Jazeera.

Asia Times Online (http://www.atimes.com/) is quite interesting too.

You know the fat lady is about to sing when a dictator unleashes hell from above over his own unarmed, civilian compatriots, and bombs parts of his capital city. That's a bridge too far even by the unspeakable standards of Western-backed dictators in the Arab world.
