    when revolutions occur.

    I'm not saying that this will happen in the USA, necessarily, but historically, governments fall when they lose the support of police and military.

    Now, that's not a particularly brilliant insight on my part, is it? The brown stuff is hitting the fans all over North Africa and Europe, and well, the people have a short temper these days.

    Interesting times.
