#2 I'm pretty surprised at the relative moderation of the various Arab dictators. The Chinese government killed thousands in a matter of days. All of the Arab dictatorships added together have killed less people over three months than the Chinese government did at Tiananmen Square. I had thought we'd see reenactments of the crushing of the Hama rebellion pretty much at inception. It looks like the current crop of Arab dictators is nowhere near as ruthless as its forebears. This is why the odds are many of them will fall.
