political dissident and linguist Noam Chomsky analyzes the U.S. response to the popular uprisings sweeping the Middle East and North Africa. "Across the [Middle East], the overwhelming majority of the population regards the United States as the main threat to their interests," Chomsky says. "The reason is very simple ... Plainly, the U.S. and allies are not going to want governments, which are responsive to the will of the people. If that happens, not only will the U.S. not control the region, but it will be thrown out."

If being opposed to the “will of the people” with respect to Egypt and the Middle East means the US and Europe opposed the formation Islamic republics populated with mindsets from the 12th century is wrong … then I don’t want to be right. Sorry, but Chomsky is an amazingly transparent hypocrite.
