Nearly years later in in keeping with the lowered tone of society it was a barrow boy driven by despair to suicide who triggered the spreading revolution of angry Arabs against their autocratic governments In a span of a few months autocratic regimes that had held power for decades fell in countries like Egypt and Libya while others in Yemen and Syria have been left barely clinging to life Some have been mostly peaceful others have been brutally opposed by governments All face an uncertain future .
