The Arab Spring and the Wars of Ramadan

Hosted by

The Arab Spring and the Wars of RamadanThe so-called "Arab Spring" began with peaceful protests that led to hopes of non-violent revolution in Tunisia and Egypt. In Syria and Libya, dissent has led to bloody repression and civil war. In Egypt, Hosni Mubarak is being subjected to public trial, accused of ordering the killings of peaceful dissenters in January, before their movement forced him from office. What will it take to satisfy the demand for real change after 30 years of corruption and brutal repression? We update the process of accomplishing change in the Arab Middle East.
