More likely rising food prices caused the “Arab Spring.”

Furthermore, you betray a very naive reading of recent events and past history to act as if it is obvious that the recent events in the Arab world are a blessing.Many tyrants and dictators have been overthrown in this world. But very few of those overthrows has resulted in a net benefit for the human race. The test of a good revolution is not who went down but what comes after.
