    I am a first time blogger. My inspiration to do this is the current historical event taking place in Egypt, and also the issue of Julian Assange and Wikileaks. I think in some ways the two issues are connected. I am enraged by main stream media which is putting out misinformation and confusing the public. The middle east situation has gone on for so long and it is distressing to see so much unnecessary violence and suppression in those countries. One must ask why has this been going on for so long?
