This article focuses primarily on Saudi Arabia and Iran, with mention of a conversation between King Abdullah and Honsi Mubarak.

King Abdullah, from what I can gather is not even in Saudi Arabia (see additional thread), but there seems to be no mention of this. (Saudi King Arrives in Morocco After Treatment in U.S)

Interesting to me is that there is no mention of the Saudi Arabia protests reported by a Tehran paper (see related thread).

More details about the Iranian reaction:

"Iran expects Egyptian officials to listen to the voice of their Muslim people, respond to their rightful demands and refrain from exerting violence by security forces and police against an Islamic wave of awareness that has spread through the country in form of a popular movement,"the state-run Press TV quoted Mehmanparast as saying.

Many Saudis were in the US for a week long visit that they cut short..
Would you expect them to say anything different to what they did while still on US soil?
And they would also be dreading the fact that they may be next...

I'm still waiting to see how this will all play out. I want to see who replaces these regimes if they should fall. Will they be more puppet governments or true democracies? War mongers maybe?

It's going to be a very interesting year, that's for sure. I'm not sure how they're going to pull this off with everyone watching the ME pretty much explode.

While Egypt lent some support to and Saudi Arabia is a huge enemy of Iran, Syria would be a very big one as they are perhaps the most closely aligned with Iran. The two of them have been targets for far longer and have withstood much.

Good looking, I'm not surprised at that. The people must be wondering why I would imagine unless they do know what's up.

Hmmm...got a source?

We were wondering about what was happening with Egyptian television/radio yesterday, but no one seemed to be writing about that.
