I think this should have been in a different category. However, I will say that I support any revolution of the people philosophically. Moral support I guess. However, I don't like revolutions because they are wars and involve bloodshed. Sometimes they are necessary though.

I have deleted your last sentence because it was an evil thing to say.  Shame on you for saying such a thing.  Wishing for genocide is not a political opinion, it is evil.

I do support the Arab revolutions, though I worry that they will not turn out well.  I definitely support having more democracy in all countries.  I worry, though, that the countries may not actually turn out to be democratic.  If they go back to authoritarian governments, nothing will be better than it was.  It is very hard to create a democracy from scratch, but I hope that the Arab countries will be able to manage.
