A decade after the Arab awakening, much ink has been spilt over the study of the long-term impact the Arab uprisings have on people’s desire for democratic transitions across the Middle East. This article provides an overview and analysis of the Arab revolutions for their pro-democracy struggle that swept important Arab countries by the beginning of 2011 from North Africa to the Middle East. It focuses in particular on Six of the major Arab Spring states: Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Syria, Yemen and Bahrain and on how Obama’s response resulted in the turmoil in the region. The study faults the United States for its support for the authoritarian regimes as a major contributor to the failure of democracy in countries of major protest.
