1. What role, if any, do Western powers/International community have in maintaining peace/ promoting democracy in the Middle Eastern states?
Well I believe the western powers have a big role in maintaining peace and promoting democracy in the Middle East. The United States being the most powerful country in the world; really influence other countries and government.
2. Has the Arab Spring been good or bad for the “everyday person” in the Middle East?
I guess for the everyday person in the Middle East it would be bad because the streets would be very busy with protesters. Arab spring sounds kind of dangerous and very unsafe for the everyday person.
