Crisis Monitors of the Day – Libya – Oman and Vietnam Join the Wave

Crisis Monitors of the Day – Libya – Oman and Vietnam Join the Wave

cmlogo2 Crisis Monitors of the Day   Libya   Oman and Vietnam Join the Wave

Libya continues to be the most chaotic and violent spot. Unrest also continues, although not as violently, in Bahrain and Yemen.

China, Vietnam, and Oman are now on the radar. The Chinese made news by responding to calls for protest with overwhelming force – and roughing up international journalists who attempted to cover the events. Oman surprised almost everyone with the revelation that two protesters were killed there.

Vietnam also reportedly joined the protest wave over the weekend. I’ve added a crisis monitor but information is quite thin. It will be interesting to see if a stronger movement develops.

Nasa’s shuttle mission continues. Check out the STS133 monitor complete with HD video. It will remain up throughout the mission.

The US national security, Obama, and Clinton monitors are still in the mix. As for the Oil and Gas monitor – it could be here a while too.
