As Midnight Rider said in a comment to his post "At Least the Romans Got Fiddle Music":
There is still unrest in Egypt, though little reported. Bahrain is melting down so the Saudis have rolled tanks [to crush] their own nascent protests. The Iranians threaten to (presumably) roll their own tanks into Saudi Arabia if the Saudis don't roll out of Bahrain. Meanwhile the Iranians themselves are crushing their own internal dissent by, in some cases, throwing children as young as 14 at the protesters thinking that the protesters will be less likely to hurl rocks etc for fear of taking down a kid. Yemen is still in [its] own throes. Israel has stopped 2 arms shipments by sea -- 1 to Egypt and the other from Iran to Gaza -- and one by land to Gaza. The only thing loser to Hell on Earth right now than Libya is probably Japan where they are sleeping in sub zero temps with winds and snow, little or no food and water while our government decides that our troops must stay 50 miles from the reactors to protect them from harm. The very same troops who WILLINGLY volunteered to go in harm's way for others. And of course no one knows what the real situation in Japan is with the reactors because the gov't there can't get its story straight and meanwhile here OUR gov't [via White House Press Secretary Jay Carney - watch the video] tells people like Jake Tapper that they should get the story from their own reporters and not our gov't...Also see "President Obama's Trivial Pursuits."
Meanwhile, Obama goes golfing and makes sure he gets his March Madness picks in. And oh yes, is planning a 2 or 3 day trip to Brazil soon with the wife and kids....
The White House's disconnect is surreal.
