Another Angry Friday

Today will be another protest Friday, another day of rage in many countries. In Syria the protesters are calling it Martyr's Friday, after the dead in Deraa and Latakia. In Yemen, both pro-Salih and anti-Salih forces will assemble in force. Bahrain, though the lid is on tightly, is under a lot of pressure. In Egypt yet another Million Man March has been proclaimed, as "Rescue the Revolution Day."

More as the day goes on. Meanwhile check Twitter hashtag #arabfriday.
