2: At this moment, it does not appear that any other regime is more
likely to fall. But this has been like popcorn. One crisis subsides and another breaks out. Bahrain was last week but they seem to have gotten things under control. For the now, Libya is the most likely.

Yemen is having a crisis but the bulk of the tribes appear with the government. It is one to watch. Iran had a puny attempt at a rising and it was completely crushed. They seem solid. The decision by Obama and Clinton to encourage the rising hurt the rising badly. Would have failed anyone, but they made the dissidents appear to be unpatriotic and pro-American.

Yemen could deteriorate and we could have rising elsewhere that we don't
anticipate, like Algeria. Of course the one country to watch is Saudi Arabia. If there is a rising there--and I don't think there will be one that isn't crushed in minutes--that will be the one that will change the world.
