The list of countries just keep growing doesn't it Jim? Makes me wonder just how harsh conditions are in the Middle East. Is this purely economic, political or religious or a combination of factors?
I have a few feelers out to some people over there to get a perspective on this. I'll let you know what the results are but it may take some time. Even they are having a hard time digesting the current events.

Yeah I'd be interested in hearing from someone there. It is a combination of all of the above, no food, no jobs, being ruled by a dictator, not being able to have a sat, and us. Interesting turn out in Bahrain today, it bears watching.
