A Guide for Autocratic Regimes

Read up, Saleh and Ghadafi.  Mubarak and Ben Ali didn’t last long enough to have the opportunity.

5 Golden Rules for Middle Eastern Regimes:

1) Don’t turn off the internet.  This will result in extra-protest time for the average teenager.

2) Plan ahead for armed response.  It may pay off.  Or it might just get the U.S. involved.

3) Don’t have a public square so inconveniently located in the middle of a major city-center.

4) Keep out all international media.

5) Don’t use camels.

So go ahead and oppress away.  For now . . .
