The same goes for Egypt. And it should have been the same for Libya.
I agree with Sarah Palin: let Allah sort it out.
In Egypt, the US had good cause to support Mubarak against the protestors, and we have good cause to support the Egyptian Army now. The alternative to the Egyptian army running things is having a Muslim-brotherhood run Egypt.
In Libya and Syria, the situation is more murky because unlike Mubarak and his officers, Assad and Gaddafi are/were anti-American in their rhetoric (though both have cooperated with the US strategic aims in the past - Assad's father supported us during the first Gulf War, Gaddafi was working with the CIA to destroy Al Quaeda cells in Libya). Nevertheless, I still fail to see the wisdom in working to overthrow secular dictators and replacing them with Islamists or with the anarchy of sectarian strife.
