The Arab Spring Revolution is a Failure “Arab spring mishap leads to sharp increase of oil smuggling”, “Syrian revolution starts experiencing causalities”, “Overthrown Egyptian government a downright failure”, “Tunisia on the verge of economic collapse post being struck by the Arab spring revolution”, “Bombing in Libya kills 20 in the proximity of a ration distribution unit”. These were the kind of news headlines the modern world was bombarded with when the riots in the Middle East were instigated. Moreover they were the root cause on the basis of which the Arab spring revolution has been deemed a failure. In 2010 the Middle East experienced a disturbing series of protests and riots against the government. The term Arab Spring was coined as an allusion for the 1848 revolutions that rocked the Arab world.
