There are no puppetmasters. You are looking at a completely organic snowball event.
Tunisia protested, and - no doubt to the surprise of the Tunisians, it worked

Maghreb and middle east have started their own movements... With even more surprise victories. Egypt's revolution is succeeding. Gaddhafi is falling
like a brick. Bahrain is set to go to the people whether the US likes it or not.
These successes are witnessed by people in Ghana, and people in Cote d'Ivorie, people in China and North Korea. They see these uprisings working,
autocrats falling, and they tell themselves, "We can do that, too." So they do.

The situation is nearing critical mass; All it will take is another people's victory, and it'll start sweeping. Incidentally, an act of repression
will also spur it further at this point.
