Bouazizi and Fadiya

Reader comment on item: Mohammed Bouazizi, Historical Figure

Submitted by Frank Luke (United States), Apr 21, 2011 at 13:03

Thanks for the recap Daniel. Such cases of injustice (what Hamdi did to Bouazizi) are very common throughout Asia. Men and women in uniform behave in a vile manner and the common man is afraid of them. What most Middle Easterners and other Asians do not realize, is the fact that "American Intervention" is benign and helpful. Intervention by their own (like Fadiya Hamdi) is usually carcinogenic and unending.
