/ revolutions / different /
Apostate Windbag, has an excellent piece about the revolutions popping up all over the former CIS (and beyond) and, among other things, how they are received in the corporate US press, in comparison with the uprsings and revolutions occuring in Latin America.
The author further raises the possibility that once people taste a bit of freedom they are likely to ask for more - a fact which might produce results that will surprise US policy makers.
In the process, WaPo double standards are exposed, the shadiness of John Laughland is discussed and a great defense of Chavez is offered. Stuff that, as you might guess, had me cheering wildly.
In fact, the whole damn blog is not only written in a rich and interesting prose, but I have found precious little that I can conceivably disagree with...
Thus, Apostate Windbag is now proudly featured in the side bar, filed under "from the left". Go read it.
