Is protesting worse than futile?

Is it only a matter of time before we see a western nation 'liberated' by China and Russia?

Europe is in alot of trouble. The anti-IMF protests are getting bigger and more violent with time. We have seen the West supporting 'rebels' and 'activists' in the Africa/Midle East. Isnt this setting a bad precedent? What if China does that to us?

Civil unrest could get really bad in western nations if the economy/world economy doesnt pick up soon. If there are riots in the west it could give nations an excuse to invade or to back 'rebels' that dont even have to be from the country experiencing trouble. The 'rebels' in Libya and Syria have been from as far away as England. China and Russia could send in militia forces to back OWS protesters. And we all saw what the west consider suitable treatment of ousted leaders. Wasnt that a scary precedent to set?

It seems that protesting your government is a terrible idea for many reasons. Next time someone considers protesting their government they should decide if their beef is worth the possibilty that you could turn your nation into a warzone and make yourself a refugee. Is it really better for most women in Libya now? Are the protesters of Syria happy now their country has been destroyed?

Dont protest. Its uncivilized. Governments are right. Civilized people do not jump around like animals and make demands. There are better ways.

Not everyone in Libya and Syria protested. Not everyone was unhappy. Just like not all are unhappy with western governments.

I do not think advanced western consumers are all uncivilized. Just the protesters.

Teachers Unions are quite uncivilized in my opinion.

edit- actually not just the protesters. But especially the protesters.
