Duriung the second quarter we will continue studying ongoing issues in the Middle East. We will focus on the recent uprising in Libya and downfall of their dictator, Muammar Gaddafi. In Egypt we will discuss more of the "Arab Spring" and the ousting of their long time dictator, Hosni Mubarak. Comparisons will be made to the American Revolution, as well. More importantly we will investigate how Americans have played a role in the outcomes of all the events above. We might be surprised just how big of a role we have played!
