So the Arab Spring evolved into the Summer of Arab Discontent and nowto the Winter of The Muslim Brotherhood. American is reaping what America has sown. We help bring down secular despots such as Hussein, Qaddafi, Assad and Mubarek in the name of Democracy and Human Rights, and are consequently aghast that the corruption and bloodshed left in their wake has resulted in situations multiples more bloody than the countries and situations these gentlemen controlled while in power. There is a lesson here, folks, and it is NOT that democracy and righteousness can be imposed from without. What America represents is alien to these people, and has as much chance of success there as would governments by Mullahs and Shari'a law here. It is time we wake up.
