Libya • The US sent troops to chase down al Qaeda members in Libya causing a civilian backlash
Saudi Arabia • There is recent backlash against the rampant sexism prohibiting women to work in certain jobs.
Jordan • Taxes are rising and the city of Maan has been abundant with protesters lighting fires to government buildings and cars.
Yemen • The people are losing jobs and demand the government help fix it.
Syria • The rebels have been fighting the Syrian government demanding a change in presidents.
