(CNN) – It’s truly amazing to see the dramatic changes that occurred in North Africa and the Middle East this year. Gadhafi, bin Laden, al-Awlaki dead. Mubarak in jail. Other despots have fled or are on the verge of being removed from power. Bashar al-Assad brutally fighting for his survival in Syria.
Anyone who would have predicted these changes a year ago would have been dismissed as weird.

I'm loving the Hope and Change that our President is bringing about.
Not only is he doing an admirably outstanding job in regards to our national security, but he has proven instrumental in promoting freedom from despots in parts of the world that have suffered under the hands of tyrants.
Mr. President the Nobel Peace Prize Committee saw in you great potential for bringing about positive change in the world. They were absolutely right in their choice. You have proven those that said you were unworthy of this prize wrong.
Congratulations to our Nobel Peace Laureate President Barack Hussein Obama.
The world goes through an upheaval every 50-100 years. In this case to get rid of some very bad men. Now if we can just take advantage of this and spend the next 100 years trying to do what is right by each other, maybe next century we can avoid this sort of change
"Arab Spring, who would have predicted?"
Haha...certainly not the GOP...their ideological myopia is legendary.
Could any of the slate of Republican Presidential candidates have managed Libya with the competence of the current administration? I don`t see it happening. EVER.
Ghaddafi you remind me of what true sacrifice looks like. You will forever live in my heart. For the love of your fellow Libyans you laid down your life. There is no greater love than for a man to lay down his life for his friend.
CH..CH..CHANGE ...The faces change, Are we to see more of the same as these old men are replaced? So far we've seen the new faces and leaders, but nothing new politically.
And not enough are concerned now about the future. While despots need to go there needs to be, to quote dems, and end game. We don't have one and in the near future this will bite us in the a**.
