    People of Egypt, Tunisia, and many other countries around the world are protesting against totalitarian regimes for their want of democracy.
    It seems North Korea is no exception to this global trend as the North is also experiencing a time of change.

    As North Koreans are getting fed up with the 60-year rule of the Kim dynasty, they are starting to act against the regime. These attempts are evident in the sumggling of anti-government leaflets, civilian attack on the train that was carrying Kim Jong-un's birthday presents, etc. Organized protest against the government is unthinkable in North Korea but recently, an interesting video clip showing a North Korean civilian scribbling curses on portraits of Kim Jong-il and his mother Kim Jong-Suk, and burning them was disclosed on the internet.

    The air of resistance prevalent in North Korea is a proof that North Koreans are beginning to turn their backs on the totalitarian regime. The public dissent over the violation of human rights, prolonged economic crisis, and starvation is intense as ever.
    It's only a matter of time before democratic revolution erupts in North Korea.

    China is going to let North Korea go? Yea right.

    And the Muslims? Look at Iraq. The women are now in Burkas. The country has become Iran. Only the ignorant believe that since they protest, they must want to be like us.

    Stop diluting yourself. We are not watching a Democratic Revolution. Egypt will end up with yet another Dictator Installed by the Military.

    People said the same thing when Iran had its Revolution. Everyone was like, wow were watching Democracy come to Iran.

    Look how that worked out.

    From where I sit I see no viable Democratic Leaders ready to take over in Egypt. The Military will still rule. Nothing will change but the packaging.
