Mmmm.... I see Yemen on your list.
Unfortunately, whilst the people of Yemen, much like the Tunisians, have a genuine beef with their own oppressive leader, the US supports him. Hence
the labeling of those anti-government rebels as "Al Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula" (who thinks up these names?) and the US drone and missile
strikes against them. Oh, and throw in a CIA linked Jihadi "cleric" hiding there to provide a bit more justification.
Unfortunately, when the people of foreign lands have had enough of all the robbery and oppression, they don't always get to remove the ones
oppressing them if it interferes with foreign banking and corporate wishes. Those involved in revolt will be labeled terrorists and the dirty tricks
will start to discredit them.
In fact, I saw an interesting video and report a few days ago showing some westerners (white - German, Swedish and somewhere else mentioned) arrested
by Tunisian police / army and branded as possible foreign mercenaries - I wonder if their passports were genuine or perhaps cloned / stolen? In the
rather shaky footage - obviously from a camera phone - you still clearly see the camo gear, ammunition, comms equipment in their luggage. Reports on
the ground from Tunisia have also mentioned gangs / groups of masked men causing trouble, described as foreigners!
