Great Courage.

. Remembering Miro.
 Ivan Khokhlov
Great courage is what the people in Libya, Bahrain, Yemen, Iran and Morocco are demonstrating.

The Libyan people are doing this even when facing extreme violence from the Libyan state and their mercenaries.

Scary to read of fighter jets bombing peoples houses, they have been destroying the neighbourhoods the demonstrators come ftom.

I did not realise until I heard that on the radio, that Israel were not the only ones to destroy the homes of any who they identify as troublemakers.

The entire family are punished and lose their homes, in Libya they kill the people and then destroy their family’s home and livelihood too.

People have been asked whether they are not scared to risk their lives, and the common response has been that they have to carry on.

That they have nothing to lose as they are already being killed, and have been for years, so have nothing left to lose.

I think it would be brilliant if Tunisia and then Egypt were the inspiration for all the other countries with dictators get rid of them now.

So come on Libya, Bahrain, Yemen, Syria, Saudi. Arabia, Iran and Morocco and maybe this may sweep through Africa too.

Isn't it amazing that the peaceful demonstrations started in Tunisia, then succeeded in Egypt and are now sweeping across most of North Africa.

I think the only thing wrong with the demonstrators in Egypt is that they did not have a follow-up plan if Mubarak did step down. I'm a little concerned at what may happen there.

They can't just get rid of the bad without having a plan for enlisting the good.

Hi Webster,
Thanks for coming by, you are right that there should have been a plan.
But this is the will of the people, something that they have never been allowed to express before.
They never knew they even had a will.
Keep warm.
