The people are simply fed up of living in the stone age. By the time this is all over, the only regimes to survive will likely be Qatar and the UAE, as no where else strikes me as that stable. You realize that thousands of protesters in the streets that can't be overpowered by police is a disaster for any government's credibility and standing, right? Not to mention the daily functions of the street and the state itself. You also have strikes, occasional riots, and what not. In such a scenario, the army remains the only hope, which more often than not turns on the Head of State rather than shoot its own people.
