...doesn't have the global implications (yet), looks like they successfully put it down, but 160+ killed, forced televised confessions, internet shut down for two weeks, victims' families being made to pay for bullets that killed their unarmed family members. Yeesh.

I normally give their leadership credit for being 'smart' long term, I guess they know the problem with letting a rebellion fester even a little. Still... can't imagine this works long term.
