Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The paranoid view would be to take the three African revolutions as one, The  American Intelegence community causes the failure of the Tunisian and Egyptian government, which precipitates the Collapse of Libya between them as the revolutionary ripples spread. The writings of Sharp and his institute essentially being a front/distraction from the funding etc. that is being pushed into the two countries.

Why might it be  organised this way? because the last one that may have been pushed was the Iranian Green revolution, and that hasn't been a notable success yet.

Why might this all be hot air? well you'd expect the US government to be much more on the ball and pushing for security council/etc action by now if this was the case, no fly zones being pushed really hard,

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
