What Kind Of Day Has It Been

  • Japan's nuclear crises persists. Markets worldwide have reacted very negatively.

  • Libyan rebels lost Brega (again) and may or may not have lost Ajdabiyah to pro-Qaddafi forces. The G-8 did not endorse a No-Fly Zone over Libya and the UN Security Counsel appears to be moving slowly or not at all on the matter. France has expressed dismay but, interestingly, could avoid the international legal problems detailed here in unilaterally intervening as it now recognizes the rebels as the legitimate government of Libya.

  • Bahrain seems to be spiraling out of control even as GCC forces have deployed and a state of emergency was imposed.

  • Quick Cali special election for Harman's seat.
