These are not revolutions: not yet. Ask Karl Marx

In "Critical Marginal Notes on the Article 'The King of Prussia and Social Reform.  By a Prussion' in Vorwarts, 1844, Karl Marx (peace be upon him) said:  "Any revolution dissolves the old society; to that extent it is social.  Any revolution overthrows the old power; to that extent it is political."  Those conditions have not been met in any of the Arab countries that witnessed upheavals.
