    Default [News] Middle-East Revolution domino effect?

    Manama, Bahrain (CNN) -- People prayed and demonstrated late Thursday outside a Manama hospital, where scores had come for treatment following a pre-dawn raid by government forces on an encampment of protesters that left at least four dead.
    Army vehicles, meanwhile, were patrolling the streets of Bahrain's capital. They filled the void left by government security forces, who hours earlier had stormed protesters gathered in Pearl Roundabout, a landmark circle in the city center.
    The throngs congregated Thursday night near the Salmaniya Medical Complex and chanted, "With our blood and our souls, we will fight for the martyrs," voicing their resolve in the face of a government clampdown that has elicited sharp criticism in Bahrain and internationally.
    Six people have died since protesters took to the streets Monday demanding reform and the introduction of a constitutional monarchy. The tiny but strategically critical island nation of Bahrain is an American ally and houses the headquarters of the U.S. Navy's Fifth Fleet.

    And this From Libya

    (CNN) -- Libya released 110 political prisoners and set up a committee to enact reforms, according to pro-government reports on Thursday, the same day that messages and videos posted on social media sites suggested that the popular opposition was gaining steam in several cities.
    Despite reports of at-times violent crackdowns, threats and widespread arrests, Libyan websites had posted calls for a "Day of Rage" on Thursday, the anniversary of a 2006 demonstration in which security forces killed at least 12 protesters.
    These follow days of bloody clashes that have contributed to 21 deaths in the North African nation -- a figure that CNN, which does not have journalists in Libya, could not independently confirm. Officials at international human rights groups, however, have said they fear that death toll may be conservative.
    Still, despite movement in recent years toward free expression, information is still difficult to get out of Libya. Moammar Gadhafi's government retains control over most of the nation's media and monitors and censors the fledgling private media outlets.
    One of the pro-Gadhafi publications, the top Libyan online newspaper Quryna, reported Thursday that a government group, dubbed the Secretary Committee of the People's Conference, plans to make major changes to Libya's government.
    The committee's reforms will affect executive branches of government and also include moves aimed at better supporting local government administrators, Quryna reported.

    Try Lebanon as the first domino. You'll see a lot more of this from that region, and likely down into Sub Saharan Africa, in the next few years.

    The protests are making a domino effect, but I doubt many revolutions are or ever will. Two or three more countries will be taken (which is a lot but not enough to worry about) and many others will have suppressed rioting. In the end, what it all revolves around is how Egypt comes out of this. I'm not looking to the sunny side of this situation though.
