Have the demonstrations that began in Tunisia begun to fade?

John Simpson, the BBC’s World Affair’s Editor, thinks so.

He was speaking on the first day of the trial of Hosni Mubarak, which is so far the most tangible result of months of mass gatherings that have amazed and baffled alike.

The demonstrators may have different reasons for being there, however they are all agreed on one thing – change in the status quo through peaceful protests, not by invading countries with heavy duty weaponry.

So if the Arab Spring, Islamic Awakening, call it what you like is losing some of its fizz, it is probably because some are fearing that outside powers may use them as a pretext for invading their country like say in Libya, and what growingly appears to be the case in Syria.
