The internet makes this world a small place for oppressive dictators.

It will certainly be interesting to see where social networking tools take anti-government movements in the future. The situation in Tunisia is comparable to most other North African and Middle Eastern countries: high youth unemployment, little economic growth, and a society which is increasingly connected through social media.

So once things reach a breaking point in Syria, Egypt, Iran, etc how long will it take before Facebook and Twitter become the tools of choice again?

Yeah, it sure gives Sarah Palin a platform that would have been denied her and her minions in the past.

Sounds like Canada is ripe for the next revolution - well, if people weren't so dependent on the Government doing everything for them.

Sure, but in these countries, it is just the replacement of one despot with another, slightly different despot. Ben Ali wouldn't have lost power if the Secret Police hadn't found a candidate that was more appealing. The people - that is just what the Secret Police use to make the revolution appeal to the TV viewing folks in the West - because next will be the request for "aid", otherwise knows as "we are unstable so we need more tanks and arms but don't want to pay for it because we looted our own country and it is brokesville..."

Ah, an American outlook on things, perhaps? Always, err, nice, to hear that side of things. Back to reality, though....
