Middle East: Democratization

http://www.examiner.com

With all the uprisings in Egypt, Iran and others it seems clear we are witnessing the democratization of the Middle East.

Likewise, there is no reason that democracy in the Middle East must emulate the democracies of the West when they could learn from America’s history and avoid problems so deeply entrenched they will never be solved here. To paraphrase Thomas Paine, they have it in their power to begin the world over again.

The Cost of Obama’s security

http://www.zigsterreport.com

Its pretty obvious that if the US president did not have the amount of security he does cushioning him from the consequences of the decisions he makes then he’d be a great deal more cautious when it comes to the decisions he makes. Same comes for the British Prime Minister & many other heads of state. But its with the US president where the issue of security always seems a bigger deal & of course it’s US presidents (past & present) who embroil the US military in wars around the globe which have cost the US taxpayer far more then the direct cost of the US presidents security entourage.

US-trained Somali soldiers defect to al-Qaida

http://www.guardian.co.uk

Hundreds of Somali soldiers trained with US funding have deserted, with some crossing over to the al-Qaida-linked militants they are supposed to be fighting, it emerged today.

The troops, backed with millions of US dollars, are leaving the ranks because they are not receiving their $100 (£65) monthly wage. The desertions raise fears that an American-backed drive next month to strengthen Somalia's army may increase the ranks of the insurgency.
