"Bid to 'Protect Assets' Slowed Reactor Fight" There needs to be a lot of political/legal reform in Japan, and quite a few people need to go to jail.
"Saudi king disappoints reformists" Funny how he was too ill for Hil: "Saudi king “too ill” to meet Hillary" The Saudis are still mad about the American approach to Egypt.
The U. S. celebrated the 'Raymond Davis' settlement by starting the drone war again: "U.S. Kills as many as 80 people in Pakistan" This is an obvious intentional attack against civilians, and constitutes a big 'fuck you' from the CIA to Pakistan for daring to make an issue out of 'Davis'. It looks like the settlement was a pure bribe, with the pay-off money going directly into the pockets of the generals. The outrageousness of the deal will further weaken the government.
More on Libya later, but you can't help but notice how the U. S. dragged things out until Gaddafi had retaken control of all the oil fields and installations.

S. government, Gaddafi, Arab despots, European governments, big oil) except, of course, the revolutionaries, who are completely screwed.
