With the "Arab Spring" democracy will do a "Great Leap Forward".

Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Syria, etc. will soon follow

and will get a place under the sun.

Other nations of North Africa will follow too, like Morocco, Algeria, Mauritania, Jordan.

Malaysia and Singapore holds regular elections but has never seen change of government .
Not surprising it is not classified under democracies.

Why some "leaders" are so afraid of a globally rising democracy ?

The "threat" of democracy gives them sleepless nights !

The "threat" of democracy let them issue censorship laws !

The "threat" of democracy let them charge people with economic crimes !

The "threat" of democracy let them build up walls (physical and virtual) !

The "threat" of democracy keeps them silent when people stand up for the rights in any part of the world !

The "threat" of democracy is like an invisible, but powerful army !

Democracy will catch YOU - The people will catch YOU !!!
