When middle east countries are ruled by brutal dictators, everybody's happy
There's chaos and violence in Syria, Libya is still dysfunctional, Iraq is about to descend into all-out civil war, and in Egypt the death toll is at 575 in just a few days as utter chaos there threatens the larger middle east as that country's peace treaty with Israel is clearly in question.
How's that Arab Spring working out, Obama?
I'd like to ask George Bush is Iraq in civil war was worth deposing Saddam Hussein?
I'd like to ask Obama if pulling the rug out from under Mubarak in Egypt and taking the side of Muslim rebels in Libya were such good ideas in hindsight?
And I'd like to ask the war hawks in US if the American lives and treasure we've expended over the last 12 years to impose our particular brand of democracy onto third-world Islamic/Arabic nations that do not understand or embrace it, were worth it?
