I am always amazed when people bemoan violence in post revolutionary societies, blaming it on a lack of democracy.

Violent mob rule ~IS~ democracy, in its purest form.

That is why the great political scientists, beginning with Plato, regarded democracy as anathema to a truly just and civil society.

Names, like words, mean things. Names both describe and empower. It is no accident that the Democrat Party in America seeks to reduce the Republic to rubble using mobs empowered by ignorance as their wrecking ball.

What you see in the “Arab Spring” is precisely what they have planned for US, once they have stripped the populace of their wealth, national pride and faith in God.

Democracy is the empowerment of those least equipped, either by learning or temperament to wield it.

If the arabic countries naively believe democracy means freedom, they are sorely naive in the first place. However they are not going to get freedom until they renounce the dictates of their islamiofascist imams. And that’s just the way it is.

So much, then, for the “Arab Spring”, which, as I have consistently argued, is an intellectually flawed concept dreamt up by those who conveniently, INTENTIONALLY overlook the forces at play in Arab countries, not the least, the Islamic-Jihadist-Appeaser/Defender/Supporter, Barack Hussein Obama...

There, fixed it!

“The Arab Spring was no prelude to democracy”

It might have been if democracies had given full support from the very beginning instead of sitting by and watching.
The muslim brotherhood watched the pro-democracy movement grow & and then joined in and took over.
That’s when the movement was lost - and the world just watched, as it’s watching in Syria.

In neighboring Egypt, meanwhile, where the defiant protests in Tahrir Square last year fostered the belief that wholesale democratic reform was about to sweep the Arab world

What naive dipshits actually believed that? Good grief these people are just stupid...

“Libya remains in thrall to the warring bands of militias—some of them al-Qaeda acolytes— “

This, of course, is bullsh*t from the 30 IQ morons in the British press. This is like claiming that America is in chaos and about to be overrun because the Earth Liberation Front burned an SUV in a car lot.

Osama al-Juwali, Libya’s interim defense minister and the most respected militia leader in Libya, has sent out the Libyan army, made of various militia groups and the regular army, to kick Al Queda’s ass when they squeak too loud.

The so-called Muslim militias in Tripoli are composed of roving gangs of 16-year-old punks looking for free stuff, just like our big city Amish here in America. The residents of Tripoli hate their guts, and al-Juwali has deployed troops into Tripoli to spank their butts several times.

No. The “Arab Spring” is beginning of everything Al Qaeda hoped achieve when it attacked the US: the rebirth of a Caliphate. It didn’t go the way they planned but it is happening nevertheless.

Of course there are issues of Islamic sectarianism; The Sunnis hate the Shiites and the Wahabbis hate everybody, etc., but, as long they external enemies to attack and loot, this can be ignored.

Not a prelude to democracy? I am shocked, I tell you....shocked.

And is that gambling over there at Rick’s?
