  • the lybia situtation doesn’t bode well for the successful social media uprises in Egypt and Tunisia. it appears that you also need a government that is not violent or at least isn’t in the mood to be violent for this to work well. start killing a bunch of anti’s, shut down the social communication, then it gets a little touchy if a “revolution” will work.
