    They're calling the president's wife the Imelda Marcos of North Africa. Manipulating her spineless, henpecked, pathetic-excuse-for-a-man husband into stealing away the nation's limited wealth into her pockets.

    I'm so impressed with the Tunisians right now !

    Saudia Arabia seems to have a very relaxed attitude to former dictators and muderers. Idi Amin spent the rest of his life in exile there after being deposed in Uganda for instance.

    He got deposed for 'instance'? Sounds like a pretty spurious crime to me.
