Libya & Bahrain Learned From Egypt

I've Been Thinking:
Libya, Bahrain, Yemen and all the other thugacracies of the world looked on as events unfolded in Egypt. They took notes. They learned important lessons. They learned a lot from Egypt and Tunisia.
In order to survive they need to find a brutality balance.
The cost/price of freedom has gone up significantly.
Libya and Bahrain saw how the police and army were relatively calm in Egypt. Libya and Bahrain will walk a better balance and they will not be afraid to kill more protesters than did Egypt - not so many as to pull more people to the protests yet not too few so as to stimulate more protesters.
Libya, Bahrain and then all the other thugocracies will try to find the middle ground - that means just enough killing and brutality to put down the protests.
