I've drawn a few comments out from Arevordi's blog- Heralding the Rise of Russia (always linked here) Arevordi is from Armenia. And you can avail yourself of additional commentary at his blog.
Today I woke up to learn that one of Levon Petrosian's smut-peddlers has succeeded in ousting Serj Sargsyan. This morning I was reminded again of the saying, the people deserve the governments they have. Nevertheless, a part of me is happy. There was no bloodshed. Seeing just how hated and despised he was, Serj Sargsyan had the wisdom to step down. Now, perhaps Karen Karapetyan can rise to power. Mass hysteria has transformed into mass euphoria. Needless to say, a part of me is also very worried. The fundamental question is this: The "people" got what it wanted, but what happens next? This is why it's not a good idea to break something before you get a better replacement. You can't break something, and then "hope" for something better to come. So, will unsavory characters and Western-financed agents (which we know saturate the Armenian landscape today) be able to grab power?

Update: Penny, did you see where the Globe listed the names of the injured, and says the guy has been charged with 10 murders and 13 attempted - not 15 as we've been told repeatedly up to now. (I'm a big numbers nut, and I was waiting for this because the incident happened on the 23rd, and 10 dead, 13 injured adds up to 23 victims.) Coroner officially identifies victims of Yonge St. van rampage
Exactly what YaYaC had anticipated. 23 victims in total.
Recapping: On the 23rd of April, Armenia had a coup. Meanwhile in Toronto, on that same 23rd day of April, an Armenian driver attacked 23 victims in total, killing 10, with a van.
