    Which Domino will fall next?

    Which regime will be the next to fall now that Tunisian and Egyptian dictators have been driven out of power by the people?

    While the protests were limited to Benghazi, I didn't think Gaddafi's regime was threatened. With them now spreading to Tripoli and the use of violent force not having scared off the protesters, it would seem his days are numbered. With Manama seemingly settled down for now and none of the others are seemingly that close to toppling their regimes yet (with the possible exception of Yemen -- though civil war is perhaps more likely there as the south has long not been pleased with the union two decades ago), it is possible that LIbya is next...

    I'm skipping straight to the part where there is a global sh*tstorm like no other.

    I pick Bahrain. I don't see any way that the leaders of Bahrain survive this.

    Although I'd like to say Libya, I think that might just be wishful thinking. Qadaffi is extremely ruthless and wouldn't bat an eye at murdering thousands if he needs to. Furthermore, most of the protests have been confined to the east. Libya might fragment into two countries, but so far there isn't any indication that Qadaffi is losing control of Tripoli.

    I can't. This is important.

    From what I am seeing now is that Benghazi is outside his control and that demonstrations HAVE started in Tripoli...

    You are right that he is ruthless, but if the army sees that the people aren't going to be cowed, that is the end of Gaddafi... the army won't want to be on the losing side of this...

    Would love to see Gaddafi go down but he would have no problem killing his own people. How a military can kill their own is hard to understand but it has happened before in history.

    If there was ever a time to topple him this has to be it.
