    After Egypt everybody was so surprised and just got caught up un the euphoria because it was so unexpected and now the excitement is starting to wear off and people and saying why is it so much more violent in Syria than Egypt etc thats not what we were used to. There is no such thing as a pre packaged off the shelf revolution which will be the same in every country what happens happens. There is no rule book on how a revolution must play out. In some cases it will be relatively peaceful and everything changed for the better. In other countries things are alot more violent and the new government isn't one we like. We just need to butt out, let things run their course and deal with the outcome when it happened but we should not try to get involved at any level or we risk creating new problems. The only people who have a say in the way things turn out are the citizens of the individual countries concerned. Time to sit back prepare for the worst but hope for best and keep our noses out of things that don't concern us.
