Egypt’s actions demonstrate the ripple effect

-A A +A

North Africa is a textbook example of the law of unintended consequences; the ripple effect. Every action has consequences and changes the world in some way. These changes then cause more effects, which further change the world, and so on. North Africa demonstrates this perfectly.
The people of Egypt were dissatisfied with Hosni Mubarak, and through their protests forced him to step down. In so doing,
Mubarak showed that he actually cared about his people, about his country, about something other than maintaining his power. Inspired by this example, the people of Libya realized that they, too, could overthrow their tyrant, and also took to the streets.
However, Moammar Gadhafi is no Mubarak. He vowed to maintain his power, and sent out his troops to break up the protests. Thus, Libya has effectively been in a state of war for the last several months.
It got so bad that Gadhafi apparently sent in fighter planes to bomb the protestors. Then, the U.S. and its allies stepped in, setting up a no-fly zone in Libyan airspace, shooting down Libyan fighter planes and taking out the country’s air defenses. Now, Libya truly is a war zone.
