    Not sure if it has been mentioned yet, but if you haven't read Ready Player One by Earnest Cline, you should. It's the most fun book I have read in decades. Fantastic.
    His next book, Armada, is coming out in two weeks. It should be a smash hit.
    Trust me on Ready Player One, this is a book you'll read and re-read.

    Oh yes, the original spark was already there, and it was obvious that there was an undercurrent in each of the countries of a people under extreme duress. We weren't the prime mover, sorry if I gave the impression that we were, but I do believe we were the conductors of the orchestra once everyone came to the concert. 
    And we made sure that cellphone and internet service continued in those areas through the entire events. That is a huge logistical aid in the kind of rebellions we saw. Not to mention our holding back on the reins of the Eqyptian military. Libya... well we were pretty involved in there during the overthrow and afterwards, much to our detriment.
    We certainly weren't the only participants either, but you'd be foolish to believe that we weren't responsible for the voices of dissent becoming an unavoidable chorus.
