I have been scratching my head for some time trying to figure out what the Arab Spring and Middle East turmoil was all about. Everything just seemed
to be happening too quickly, with far too many conflicting stories.
Last week I started looking at various maps of the Middle East and Northern Africa, I also began researching military strength, political history and
conflict's in the region. One source I used was Wikipedia since they had a decent timeline of the Arab Spring conflicts and resolutions.
I printed a blank map of the region and shaded each area based on the current situation, I used red for countries where the government was overthrown
during or shortly after the Arab Spring. There were four in total.....
Within the past 48 hours four US embassy's have been attacked, they are located in......
There is absolutely zero chance this is a series of random events, it is being orchestrated by someone for some reason. I almost believed the whole
anti Mohammed movie thing at first, then I found out it wasn't really a movie, it was an internet posting. How did the news of an internet meme
travel that far, that fast, and enrage so many people? It just DOES NOT make any sense. I was on the internet last week for several hours, researching
regional conflicts and I saw a TON of information about religious and social issues, I never saw a single word about that movie.
I used blue to shade the next level of tension on my map, I hope I don't need to do a follow up.
