    Yemen president set to stand down

    Yemen's president has told parliament he will not seek another term in office or hand power to his son - an apparent reaction to protests in his own country inspired by Tunisia's revolt and the turmoil in Egypt.

    The US-allied Ali Abdullah Saleh, who has been in power for nearly 32 years, spoke to lawmakers in both houses of parliament.

    Mr Saleh said: "I won't seek to extend my presidency for another term or have my son inherit it."

    I'm sure Tunisians are very proud of themselves for setting this off.

    Let me ask you a few questions, Liala, and I know you were opposed to the Iraq War and its objective of forming a democracy by external imposition.

    What has been the impact in the Arab and broader Muslim world of the debate, negotiation, formation and legislative passage of the Iraqi Constitution?

    What has been the impact in the Arab and broader Muslim world of the formation of a diverse variety of political parties in Iraq?

    What has been the impact in the Arab and broader Muslim world of the proliferation of voices through various media in Iraq?

    What has been the impact in the Arab and broader Muslim world of the coverage of these events in Iraq by Al Jazeera?

    The fact that events in Tunisia and Egypt had little to do with established organized political parties is proof that events in Iraq over the past decade had a profound effect on the body politic of those countries.

    Americans probably ate more for supper than most people eat in a week. that's why 70 percent of them are overweight.

    then again, the United States did invent supersizing.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    Among a great many other inventions the modern world enjoys.

    Other countries are more identified with downsizing.

    Egyptians remain highly suspicious of Mubarak and are, of course, unsatisfied with his recent announcement. Demonstrations will likely continue at a large pace.

    Meanwhile, Mubarak should go now, says Turkish PM.

    You think not? It was the WHOLE POINT of us doing so. To democratize the Middle East. It is working.
