US Funding?[edit]

This article completely ignores the funding and organization of Arab Spring revolutions by American NGOs and the US State Department. The article presents them as if this arose spontaneously from these countries, which is not at all the case. That is a rather major omission.Cadwallader (talk) 18:07, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

Which event ended the Arab Spring?[edit]

In the info box, 26 October 2013 is given as the end date (with a "citation needed" tag). The only other mention of this date in the whole article is for the end(?) date for the Sudan protests. At Timeline of the Arab Spring, 26 Ocotber 2013 is not menntioned at all! I think this should change. If the end date of the Arab Spring is a matter of debate, this should be told to the reader rather than giving a definite date without any further explanation.--VorerstGescheitert (talk) 11:57, 9 October 2015 (UTC)

The Arab spring is currently ongoing, with 3 states currently still in civil war, or are in uprising.Georgeday868 (talk) 01:47, 8 November 2015 (UTC)

You need to provide a source that confirms the Arab Spring is ongoing. At the moment, there are more sources confirming it ended long ago. That those wars are ongoing is not an indication the Spring is ongoing, unless there are sources confirming this. In fact, 1 of the 3 states had already been in a war (Iraq), and the current war in another country (Libya) is separate from the war that started and ended during the Spring (during which Gaddafi died). Most sources currently refer to the ongoing events as the Arab Winter, and not Spring. EkoGraf (talk) 03:40, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

American Imperialism[edit]

The questioned wording is the inclusion of American Imperialism under Causes. Personally, I don't see the point, since Imperialism is already a listed cause. GABHello! 22:23, 9 October 2015 (UTC)
