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 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 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.
