Another one bites the dust !

Of the four dictators in the front row of this picture, two, Ben Ali (Tunisia) and Mubarak (Egypt) have been overthrown this year. Colonel Gadaffi (no need to indicate where he is in the picture) has not long left. His only hope was to ride it out but it is clear that NATO are not going to stop the bombardment until he his gone. And as of last weekend Ali Abdullah Saleh who has ruled Yemen for 33 years was forced to leave for Saudi Arabia after he was injured in an attack on the Presidential Palace in Yemen. It is unlikely that he will ever return. Who is next ? Basher Al Assad of Syria has to be the favourite.
