Arab Spring Hurricane
ARMY WAR COLL CARLISLE BARRACKS PA
Pagination or Media Count:
The ideal of promoting democracy in the Arab region was for some time not immediately obvious, but the pressure of injustice and loss of hope motivated people to struggle for freedom. Implications for the armed forces, and the potential for using the armed forces against the people, differed from country to country depending on the political concepts in force and the ideology of the army itself. This paper will compare the reactions of the respective armies to political contestation in Egypt, Syria, and Libya. It will seek to demonstrate differing concepts regarding how an army should be used under such circumstances.
