It’s a historic day as President Hosni Mubarak has stepped down –but only after three weeks of protest. Mubarak’s departure marks a stunning end to a rule that spanned 30 years and saw him rise as a strategic U.S. ally in a troubled region.

We also have Chinese New Year’s celebrations in Taiwan and Singapore;  demonstrators in Thailand vowing not to lose more territory to Cambodia, where the neighboring nations are involved in an armed confrontation over land and the ancient temple complex on the border; and two rare white lion cubs playing  at the Ouwehands Zoo in the Netherlands.

We have opposite views on the upcoming Valentine’s holiday with three-dimensional letters spelling out “love” on display at a mall in Jakarta, Indonesia, and Muslim women shouting anti-Valentine’s Day slogans outside Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
