A sign of things to come?


The Guardian reported on Saturday how 36 people had died in riots due to fuel price hikes in Yemen.

"Looting broke out in the Yemeni city of Aden last night after two days of rioting over fuel price rises that left 36 people dead....Several police officers were among the dead. Locals are angry at a decision to remove subsidies on fuel, a move that has roughly doubled the price of diesel, petrol and kerosene and caused knock-on rises in fares for public transport."

Yeah, but that's Yemen. That could never happen in, say, Los Angeles if gas hit $6.00 - not a chance my friend! We'd invade Yemen first, or Venezuela.
