Marrakech - Wait time is over. The impatience of youth, which is to be dissociated from haste and non rational decision, is not judged. It cannot be as it stick measures actions to be undertaken against what has already been achieved or failed to be achieved locally and elsewhere. The appreciation of relevance is presented as not romantic.It seems too be well aware of the limitations of the moment and of both the risks of acting and of missing the rare opportunity that has become available. The thread running through Egypt, Tunisia and Libya has thinned to a breaking point, or so it appeared. Apprehensions originating in one case are dismissed by the apparent success of the other.
