At this stage it looks like anything could happen. A people's revolt or a crushing crackdown? Either way it will probably be ugly. Once you start shooting your own people it's usually a no win situation (unless you are Chinese but we can't talk about that). Can't help but picture Gadaffi as this Dr Strangelove character with an increasingly frail grasp of reality.

Always a controversial character and sometimes a laughing stock Silvio Berlosconi may have finally met his match. Today he has been ordered by an Italian judge to stand trial for paying for underage girls and covering it up. Apparently he was not so successful at covering it up.

...and ticks. Mubarak seems to have been clinging on to power by the skin of his teeth for some time now. Well, 17 days anyway. The most interesting fact I discovered about Egypt during these events is that Egypt has been in an official state of crisis for 30 years. So I guess the last 17 days is no big deal. By the sounds of the news this evening he may well be gone by the time I post this, so this image will probably be already out of date!
