Saw this today on one of my RSS feeds….

And it made me think “How ‘organic’ is this?” Are these legitimate uprisings by people who want freedom, or simply someone who can make a buck in the ensuing chaos? So far we have seen (perfectly needed) uprisings in countries like Morocco, Egypt, and Bahrain. Heck, even places like Jordan and Syria are seeing trouble as well. And Iran is still recovering from the brutal repression by its regime.

But the question still lies, is this a real democratic uprising (a’la Tiananmen Square) or something much less “freedom” oriented.
