Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Gen. Cartwright: Egypt-like protests will spread
By BRENDAN FARRINGTON - Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Gen. James Cartwright told an economic club Friday that protests like the ones that brought down leaders in Egypt and Tunisia will continue to spread as long as authoritarian regimes don't meet the needs of their people.
"While we are urging restraint, this is going to happen. It is moving through Northern Africa, the Middle East at a pace that is just unheard of and each of those governments and each of those nations is watching it come, trying to figure out what's happening and how they might prevent it," Cartwright, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the Economic Club of Florida.
There are ongoing protests in Yemen, Bahrain and Libya. Cartwright said the fall of Hosni Mubarak in Egypt after just two weeks of protests probably surprised people most because it was considered one of the region's more stable nations.
