Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Perhaps not as clearly. I wouldn't like to go down into the street in that freak Ghaddafi's country, for example, and SA has such an archaic, traditionalist side, that both Tunisia and Egypt contrast with in terms of having developed some notions of independence, freedom, and democracy even though their republics were then captured by profiteers and dictators. It boils down to what ideals people share, soldiers included. I'm not sure what cultural influences Libyan and Saudi soldiers have been exposed to over two-three decades. Would Internet make the difference?
