Congratulations Tunisia


After weeks of massive protests against economic stagnation and political oppression, the people of Tunisia have driven Zine El Abidine Ben Ali -- ruler of the country since 1987 -- from power. Let's hope that tyrants throughout the Middle East are resting a little less easily today.

And let's hope they steer very clear of the US's corporatist orbit!

Actually I think Ben Ali partially represented the "US corporatist orbit". He is, or used to be, one of the US's dismal allies in that dismal part of the world.
