Can People Power Prevail in Middle East?

NBC News tonight cross-sold Newsweek's article located herehttp://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/7103524/site/newsweek/ on People Power Prevailing in the Middle East. It appears that when given a choice like in Iraq the people prefer ruling themselves -- no matter how badly -- over a King, an Ayatollah, bully, dictator or tyrant. Similarly, Thomas Friedman had an article published in the Star Tribune noting a similar phenomenon. It appears the events of the Middle East are accellerating at a rate that the press will have a difficult time keeping up with. There is tremendous potential for democracy and peace here. We are living in historic times. Thank you, President Bush.
