Nice to see something peaceful in the Middle East after all the wars and death. With peaceful resistence they were able to get what they wanted while terrorists have been killing for years and gotten nothing. This peaceful opposition and over throw of a government may show other nations in the area that terrorism is not the way to make changes.
