Uprisings across North Africa and the Middle East. Some succeed, others remain in doubt. Decades old dictatorships and authoritarian regimes falter and collapse. Others like Syria, Bahrain, Yemen use bloody repression while talking reform. Crowds of young people and ordinary folks use Twitter and Facebook to organize revolts. Islamic groups and factions wait in the wings. Where is it all going.
