A lot of stuff has happened over the past few days:
Big earthquake in Turkey. Magnitude 7.2 It's been a while since the last one.
The Saudi crown prince died. So far all the kings have been the sons of Abdul Aziz, the founder of the Kingdom. Call me crazy, but maybe they should try having a ruler who isn't over 80 years old? Or maybe even less than 60?
Qaddafi is dead and Libya is "officially" free now.
The United States is leaving Iraq.
