Nobody Knew, Nobody knows

Democracy, Arabs,  MSM, Media, Rebellion, 2011,  Orson Wells,  : Dry Bones cartoon.
Much of the Western Main Stream Media sees the uprisings as positive and pro-democracy. Basically, what we have, they seem to be saying, is a "Happy Ending".

Unfortunately that reminds me of a quote by American film director Orson Wells. When asked about how to make a film with a happy ending, he responded by saying that making a happy ending simply "depends on where you stop your story".

Unfortunately, in the real world the story is not stopping here. It's going on, and nobody knows how and when it stops! And nobody knows if it's going to have a "happy ending".
