The most backward and poor nation in the region still has a high percentage of loyalists. Loyal to whom? To a leader that has kept the people poor and backward? They go to streets fight rebels saying: " We want to remain poor and backward" . Are this kind of people normal? Dont' they watch television? They do not see people everywhere want the right to chose their own leaders every four, five years? Please, give me a break... (refrain from comments comparing Israeli democracy and the lack of progress in the the peace process).
