anyway things got super red hot in Tunisia with now even the president is on the run, airports shutdown, deaths...

all this deserves all the attention

"The protests over the past few stays, which stemmed from corruption, unemployment and rising prices, has seen several people killed."

Thousands protest against rising cost of living

I didn't realize or even know what was going on with Malta. My G,G, Grandparents are from Malta, I'm very interested in the country and want to know how things are going there. Sad to hear of such things...

Yey! Well done Tunisians. I wonder where the President will be going into hiding. If he's got lots of money, no doubt US PTB will find him somewhere to stay - after all, they took the Nazis in too. They had gold and and other assests, like lots of technology for torturing and killing people.

[SIZE=5]Tunisia: the miracle of revolution.

Behold Condi's mighty hand.[/SIZE]


[SIZE=4]The allegory of Condoleezza Rice as Moses bringing revolution and freedom to the people of Tunisia.[/SIZE]


Condi as a young girl with her mother.

God of Abraham, take my child into thy hands that she may live to thy service.



Condi as a young girl outside the White House.

and I will send thee Condoleezza unto Washington that thou mayest bring my people out of segregation




Look at her face. She has seen God.




Hear my word Ben Ali and obey.
If there is one more problem upon Tunisia it is by your word that God will bring it.




Arise oh Tunisia, behold the dawn of freedom!
For hundreds of years we have waited. The Almighty has heard our cries from bondage.




You are the chosen one.




Fear not. Stand still and see the salvation of the Lady.
The Lady of Hosts will do battle for us.



Algiers, September 6, 2008. Condi parts the sea of people before flying to Tunisia to set the people free.


Condi photoshopped as "Moses" leading the people of Tunisia to freedom.

Behold her mighty hand.



US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice waves to photographers upon her departure from Tunisia on September 6, 2008 after pressing the now ousted President Ben Ali for democratic reform.

the news article I read says

Yes, the President left, but that article is all kinds of wrong.

First, he went to Saudi, he's already there.

Second, the Speaker of the Parliament is the interm President.

I was on Holiday there a few years ago and the sentiment was there, we were warned by our taxi driver(great guy) to be carefull with the police and not go in to certain areas even tho we were in Hammermet the big tourist areas

Shame tho its a really nice country and for being a "Muslim" nation its really laid back so i guess the former presidents regin has been sliping for a while good luck to them!

country number 1 to overthrow its goverment, im predicting 20+ to do so this year
