There have been rumours that Mohamed Bouazizi is still alive 24 December 2010 - an important Washington think tank (Institute for Policy Studies) had an article about a possible change of regime in Tunisia:
"It would do Tunisians, even (Tunisian President) Ben Ali, well to recall how many US allies different American administrations have discarded…"7 January 2011 - the Council on Foreign Relations's Elliott Abrams (Elliott Abrams: Is Tunisia Next?: http://blogs.cfr.org/abrams/2011/01/07/is-tunisia-next/) seems to suggest that the fall of Ben Ali would be a good thing.
"Tunisians are clearly sick of looking at all the giant photos and paintings of Ben Ali that appear on walls, posters, and billboards all over the country...
"If Tunisia can move toward democracy, Algerians and Egyptians and even Libyans will wonder why they cannot."8-10 January - More people die in three days of rioting. Mysterious rooftop snipers are at work.13 January - The army withdraws from Tunis, which remains occupied by special forces.
The leaders of the North African branch of Al-Qaeda/the CIA call for the overthrow of Ben Ali.

"Ben Ali ... gave you security. Now that he's gone, look at the destruction," said Mohamed, a worker in a transport company as he surveyed a looted and burnt out appliances shop. (President's exile leaves security vacuum)

"The Reuters news agency reported that squads of men in civilian clothes were driving through Tunis at high speed, shooting randomly at buildings and people." (Army on streets amid Tunisia unrest)

"Organised groups were said to be attacking shops, hospitals and factories.
"Many had piled into stolen hire cars and careered around the city and suburbs, stopping only to smash and burn."
"The feel is very much that of a military takeover. It's hard to catch a whiff of what is being called the Jasmine Revolution." (Wedeman: Tunisia's military putting boot on 'Jasmine Revolution')
Has Mossad arranged the shootings in Tunisia?
In this video, 8 westerners (4 Germans, 2 Swedish), were caught today firing on the Tunisian military in Central Tunis, they were heavily armed like you can see:
Tunisia's Communications Minister has said: "Those who have spoken of 40 or 50 dead should produce a list of names...Police never fired on protesters."In this video;
You can see that the innocent protesters are shot in the head, the neck and the chest.

Tunisia has oil, like Algeria and Libya and in the same area, near the border of the three countries. What a coincidence?
This map shows you the entire pipelines network at stake in the area
Initial production from the Hassi Berkine area is estimated at about 30,000 barrels of oil per day. As agreements are reached to develop additional discoveries made by the partners and pipeline capacity from the area is expanded, the partnership's oil production from Algeria is expected to increase significantly after 1997. At the end of 1996 Lasmo announced a new discovery, together with the successful appraisal of a previous find. The EKT-1 well, located 20km north of the EME field, could hold reserves of between 100m - 250m barrels of oil. Other partners include US oil independent Anadarko and Maersk Oil. Based on current forecasts it is anticipated that by the turn of the century gross production from HBNS and BBN should reach around 250,000 bopd (approximately 30,000 bopd net to Lasmo).
"Attacks on churches in Egypt, Lebanon, Iraq and Tunisia can be analyzed in the context of a Zionist scenario aimed at driving a wedge between Muslims and Arab Christians."
