British FM Hague discusses Arab Spring in video

British Foreign Minister William Hague released a video Tuesday in which he discusses the Arab Spring, its implications for Europe, and the reasoning behind Britain's decision to take military action in Libya.
"We are dealing with momentous change in the Arab World," Hague says in the seven-minute clip. "[The Arab Spring] is, I have argued, the main event so far of the 21st century. It's more important than the 2008 financial crisis in its implications, it's more important than 9/11 in its long-term consequences. And we will see it go on for many years."
