Bookies Take Bets On Dominos

Middle East crisis: Yemen the early favourite to fall next, Paddy Power claims

"Paddy Power, the Irish bookmaker, is offering odds on the next country to force their leader to step down, with Yemen installed as the early favourite.
Following the fall of Hosni Mubarak, the Egyptian president, Yemen has been installed as 15/8 favourite.

Anti-regime protesters and supports of Ali Abdullah Saleh, the Yemeni president, clashed in Sanaa on Wednesday, with at least four people wounded, according to reports.

A protest march set off from the university heading towards Al-Sabiine square near the presidential palace, but the demonstrators were attacked by hundreds of Saleh's loyalists armed with batons, stones and daggers as soon as they left the campus.

Following the outbreak of protests across the region, Mr Saleh promised not to seek re-election in 2013, but it has not stopped unrest in the country.

The bookmaker installed Jordan as 9/4 second favourite to fall with Algeria at 7/2."

Might be a good idea to pay attention to the George Soros cheat sheets.
