Also precipitating loss of life and widespread damage, the fires of unrest and protest that have erupted across the Middle East, from Yemen to Bahrain, to Egypt and Libya, hundreds of thousands of citizens have taken to the streets, voicing their opposition to long held regimes who have tried to quell the rising chorus, at times with violence.
