So they're Arab capitalism uprisings now?

Apparently the Arab uprisings are for free markets: "you know, the fruit and vegetable seller, Bouazizi, in Tunisia that headed all this off, what was his complaint? His complaint was he just wanted to be able to sell fruit and vegetables but he was being harassed because of licensing and red tape... if you stymie entrepreneurialism, if you stymie small businesses, you’re really hurting that type of entrepreneur." Remember how Khamenei was attacked for describing the Egyptian and Tunisian uprisings as 'Islamic liberation movements'? You can argue that was also inaccurate, but it's far closer to reality than this nonsense.
