..we seem to want to design, bake, eat and not pay for our cake when it comes to democracy in the middle east. We don't like Assad, but like the rebels but suddenly (in today's NYT) don't like THOSE rebels. We don't want Mubarak, we want democracy, but we don't want the Muslim Brotherhood who won. We don't want Gadaffi, we want the rebels, but we don't want THOSE rebels. We wanted elections in Palestine, but we don't want THOSE guys winning. We're like 6yr olds. And it'll happen again in Syria post Assad and in Iran (hopefully) post Ahmadinejad/Mullahs. Make up your mind America/the West. Do you want democracy or do you want some kind of 'special' democracy where you get to choose the best winner? Coz I'm not sure that's what democracy is. YEAH, I said it!
