It cant really be acknowledged that the US prefers compliant dictators. Its embarrassing. Hence all the tap dancing from Obama/Clinton

Because he's an idiot. Just like these other boneheads in DC that think more gov. rule is the answer to all the worlds problems even though history shows that, without exception, more government is more trouble for those not in the "ruling class."

For decades the global powers have tried to bring peace. They are realising now that the forces of Jihad have been playing Western powers for fools. If it is Jihad they want it looks like it is Jihad they will get.
Expect less and less US involvement in the lives of those in the Middle East. We tried, but it just didn't take... Freedom and enlightenment that is. China is the place to be now. The Islamic world can wallow in Jihad. The planet moves on. At least China makes stuff. What does Egypt make? Anything?
