Nation-breaking news

A bit more on the protests breaking out over the arab world - Egypt is on lockdown, having turned off their internet connections and various other communications devices and having deployed special forces onto the streets of Cairo. There are mass-arrests.

Wikileaks, which kind of started this domino effect, has stated (just now): 「We will soon release numerous cables on Egypt.」

I think it is unlikely, but if I were the sort to make bets, I would start a betting pool on the odds that Egypt, Yemen, or Libya will see either civil war or their governments fall within the next two weeks. (Between the three, I would most like to see Libya drive Gaddafi out)
