  • "Secular, nationalist revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt have debunked Tehran's monopoly," argues Pepe Escobar, "and the fight is now on, against not only the tyrant of American choice but the whole US Treasury/IMF/World Bank-concocted architecture of 'reality'" — The end of the end of history.

  • "Whatever the outcome of present Middle East protests," writes Michael Klare, "they will transform the world of oil and bring an end to cheap petroleum" — The collapse of the old oil order. "Consider everything that's now happening as just the first tremor of an oilquake that will shake our world to its core."
