Trouble brewing in Arab middle east.

After the successful ouster of former presidents President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali of Tunisia and Hosni Mubarak of Egypt, protesters have gathered in public squares in Iran, Bahrain, Libya and even in Syria.

The danger here is that extremist Islamists might grab power and bring instability to the whole Middle East region.Already Bahrain which is ruled by royals showed an iron hand by firing at defenceless demonstrators! forcing France and Britain to cut-off military aid and/or sales to the country.

The events have brought alarm and maybe fears to the long running leaders like the strongman Muamar Kaddafy of Libya and even the mullahs ruling Iran.
