He writes a blog called Eunomia. He’s a smart guy, and someone whose world view I agree with. His comments last year about Israel’s deadly attack on the Gaza aid ship were spot on.
But on the current developments in the Arab world, some of his forecasts have turned out to be totally wrong.
While we’re on the subject [of revolutions], the Tunisian uprising isn’t going to lead to regional transformation.
He better ask Mubarak, Saleh in Yemen, the king of Bahrain, Assad in Syria, and Moammar Gaddafi about that.
Of course, in the end Mubarak’s regime will depend most on the loyalty of the military, and by all accounts the military remains a pillar of the regime.
Once again, he should Mubarak about this. Mubarak, is, I understand, in Sharm el-Sheikh, and he’ll there indefinitely.
Maybe worth some admission of error or comment from Mr. Larison?
