Mass protests recently broke out in North Africa and the Middle East, with the protests in Tunisia & Egypt garnering more coverage than those in Jordan & Yemen. Yet protests in all four of these countries are bringing about the change that the people desire, at least the people that aren't in "control" of the nation. The Egyptian protests began after the Egyptian government shut off the internet, thus blocking much of the communication in Egypt. In Egypt a "march of millions" was planned for February 1st; the Egyptian military has stated they will not fire on the protesters and President Mubarak refuses to step down.
The Washington Post reports, "Mubarak's appointment on Saturday of Egypt's intelligence chief Omar Suleiman as Vice President and of former air force commander Ahmed Shafiq as Prime Minister suggests that Mubarak knows his own future is much in doubt. It also suggests that the military is already in full control of the country and preparing for the post-Mubarak period."
