    The Arab Spring represents the potential to end "Western" dominance in the Middle East. So to categorize the uprisings in Egypt, Libya , and Syria as either black or white fails to recognize the dynamics of the changes taking place. Those who are benefiting are the oppressed people of the ME---everyone knows who they are---their oppressors are the dictatorships propped up by the U.S. and European states. Netanyahu's panicked reaction resulting in his criticism of the U.S. for not saving Mubarak is a clear indication that Israel is not a beneficiary of the Arab Spring, and certainly not the U.S. Morsi appears to have fallen into the Mubarak slot leading to the recent mass protests which appear to be about to unseat him also. Washington's outlook places "democratic" values on the back burner when they conflict with the values of the industrial-congrssional-military complex now dominating global politics.
