Will the iron hands over Arabia will all melt?

    All the  Arabian nations are under despots of various descriptions though they may have facile titles like kings, presidents et al. The most influential perhaps is Egypt and there is a monumental change on the cards there. Will the rest of Arabia, notably Saudi Arabia, go the Egypt way?

    2. What about Pakistan which, is dithering on the verge of collapse and looks beyond redemption? Even the military, which for all practical purposes always rules the country from behind the throne, is reluctant to take over officially.

    3. A larger fall-out is the question of the unthinking Islamic  fundamentalists gaining upper hand in the whole region and push  the world towards annihilation with wanton abandonment.

    Is this all possible?

      Yes it is - because it is easily seen that if you mirror the whole of your post it also applies to the US in its despots, dithering, collapsing, fundamentalism and wanton aggression.

        Well, I can see that you have miscontrued my argument as being patronizing and speaking from presumed lofty pedestal that the U.S. is on but, I am on you side, Chinaman. I completely agree that the U S is no better and if at all so, it is just a question of how brazen it is in the case of Arabia and how suave it is where US is concerned. In a way, the US is more dangerous as you would surely say but all this is beside the point.
        The boiling question is that of Arabia and I just wanted to confine the discussion to  it, that is all.

          I appreciate that - and understand where you are coming from - but it is the interference of the US in the region that is one of the biggest contributors to the current situation and to what will happen next - not so much local or regional politics.

    It is clear to me that change can in many situations take a very long time.  I believe it was about 3 years ago this country brought the Americans survivors of the Pearl Harbor attack to meet the Japanese pilots that were still alive from that time period only to find there were a number of America sailors who couldn't get up enough forgiveness to even shake the hand of these Japanese pilots and this was just a one time tramatic event while these people have been battling each other for a long time.

    Nah, I doubt it.  Arab culture doesn't seem suitable to democracy, it seems to need some kind of strongman.
