I keep reading that Bahrain won't revolutionize because it is 'different', which is what they said about Tunisia and Egypt.  What part of learning from the mistakes of others does the King of Bahrain not understand?

The hilarity is when the dust has settled the only governments standing in the Middle East/North Africa will be Turkey, Sudan, Iran and Syria. Iran will still have the same government because the President was elected in a landslide, and because most people know it is the Americans and the Jews who are behind the opposition.  In Syria, people are mad about the oppression and the economy, but, in the biggest irony of all, support Assad because of his position on Israel.  At the end of the day all the enemies of Israel will still be in power, and all the bought-off 'friends' will be gone.

"Anonymous Surpasses Wikileaks"  Not quite, but everything helps.  The main problem is knowing where to look for the secrets (Anonymous got very lucky with the HBGary trove, which is why insider whistleblowers will always be invaluable).

Speaking of which, the HBGary/US Chamber of Commerce scandal is simply amazing, reminiscent of Nixon's dirty tricks:
  1. "EXCLUSIVE: US Chamber's Lobbyists Solicited Hackers To Sabotage Unions, Smear Chamber's Political Opponents"
  2. "CHAMBERLEAKS: US Chamber's Lobbyists Solicited Firm To Investigate Opponents' Families, Children"
  3. "U.S. Chamber of Commerce Thugs Used 'Terror Tools' for Disinfo Scheme Targeting Me, My Family, Other Progressive U.S. Citizens, Groups"
  4. "Late Updates on the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Plot to Target, Discredit, Defraud Political Enemies"
  5. "HBGary Federal Spied On Families And Children Of US Chamber Of Commerce Opponents"
  6. "Wikileaks Wasn't The Only Operation HBGary Federal, Palantir And Berico Planned To Defraud"
  7. "The leaked campaign to attack WikiLeaks and its supporters"
  8. "Anonymous speaks: the inside story of the HBGary hack"
If the United States was functioning properly, both HBGary and the U. S. Chamber of Commerce would soon be history, with a lot of their employees facing long jail sentences. But the United States is not functioning properly:  "Why Isn't Wall Street in Jail?" (summary:  the SEC is an organized crime organization whose job it is to shield the biggest financial criminals from the Department of Justice).
