Middle East Revolution

The Egyptian Revolution that sent Mubarak tumbling down from his power became the foundation and spark that started other countries in their region to fight for their freedom and rights. From Egypt to Libya, from Libya to Yemen, Yemen to Bahrain, the words Reform, End and Freedom became the major demands and concern of the people.

This only shows that the life and system that they are living in is unfair, unjust, corrupt and painful. I cannot imagine myself living in a world like that. I think that the King’s and Leaders around the world should listen to their people and remember that the Supreme Sovereignty still resides in the people.

The Libyan revolution is now coming to it's end after a long chaotic fight between Gadhafi forces and the Libyan rebels.The fight that the middle-east is facing now and in the future is also the fight of everyone around the world.

Since the uprising began in the middle-east,the economies around the world were severely damaged and affected many countries.The reason for this,is because Libya and other countries in the middle-east are mostly one of the 20 major oil producer's around the world and it's really not shocking for Gadhafi to tell NATO AND UN that they cannot attack Libya beacuse they are one of the top oil producer's.

Now that the revolution and uprising in the middle-east is ending,What are the things that UN must or should do?

If the UN will not act immediately to prevent Dictatorship,Monarchies and Communism from emerging again in any part of the world,abusive type of people might once again use their position and power for self benefits.They might also cause a massacre or genocide like Saddam,Hitler and Gadhafi did.

What is the best thing to do?

What should we do?

It's time to act now,in order for us to secure and preserve worldwide Democracy.

  • Aug 29 2011: If you want to "preserve" (though I'd use the word "create") worldwide democracy I believe the first step to be freedom of speech, which the Anonymous movement is fighting for - I believe it has the best chance of succeeding of all I've seen.

    The best thing to do IMO is to preach acceptance. Everyone has different views, beliefs and ethics (though many are similar) and only through understanding each other will we ever agree. Does any one of us have the right to say how someone else should live? Do any groups of us? Only when we are one society, with one set of ethics and one set of laws, but that perhaps is just not human.
    • Aug 31 2011: yes the freedom of speech is the most vital thing because sovereignty always resides with the people.Leaders has no right to block freedom of speech.

    Sep 6 2011: UN , what they should do ?: what they have done until know : nothing significant , they will bother more if they will try to do something significant .
  • Sep 6 2011: The UN doesn't really do much already. They aren't very involved in the middle east, and it wouldn't change much if they were. I think the arab countries should create a union among themselves, and that way they could keep each other in check.
  • Aug 30 2011: I do not think that UN has the power or resources to ensure new dictatorship will not take root in one of the freed Middle East countries again. China and Russia in particular prefer to not interfere and support full democracies as they are not willing to give full freedom to people in their own countries. Thus in practice UN security council can pass only very limited resolutions.

    I think in order for democracies to survive, other democratic nations need to provide assistance to Egypt, Libya and others. Their advisers can help the new nations to build democratic institutions and economic systems. Hopefully people will continue to use the Internet to coordinate their actions and efforts in pressing governments for free elections.
    • Aug 31 2011: Its always up to the people.they need to stand up and speak up for freedom and peace.
      • Aug 31 2011: I agree but at the same time I wonder how many people have to die and be tortured in Syria? If people ask for help from outside then I think UN and nations have duty to help?
        • Aug 31 2011: Death and Sacrifice cannot be prevented as long as close minded leaders and people exist.What we could all do is do a type campaign to support the people in syria.but what and how?
  • Aug 29 2011: The best thing to do is let these new democracies find their own model of democracy, let's not impose anything. But they have to share with us some principles such as equal citizenship, the right to vote, limited mandate (it's going to be the case in egypt) and of course freedom of speech.
