Uprising for all the Right reasons

I like the fact that countries like Tunisia, Egypt, Jordan and Yamen (hopefully in Libya too!!) are making headlines. This means Pakistan is not on the forefront anymore. I know, it is short-lived and Pakistan will be back in the spot light, since we have a monopoly on whack job citizens but for the time being, it’s a relief.

And just so I am clear, I FULLY support the democratization of all these countries. Even if it means that in the short-term life there will be miserable. But maybe in a few decades or even more … but eventually peace will prevail. I am under no delusion that somehow getting rid of one or two or even all the dictators of Asian countries will somehow make life better for these countries in the short-term. If anything, there will be chaos but such is the process of change.
