And this is the illustration of just how ridiculous this Western support for the Arab Spring has been. Yes, we've been knocking down longstanding dictators but what are we getting in return? More radicalist Islamic countries that harbor nothing but hatred towards the West. We're establishing more failed governments and destabilizing the entire region to make it rife for more violence and terrorism. Anyone who isn't seeing the ground being gained by the Muslim Brotherhood (who should be labeled as a terrorist organization) in the ME is blind or not paying attention. This whole situation is not going to end well for anybody, least of all the people of those countries who have traded one strongman for an army of power abusers and religious extremists.
