Sadly Foolish

Reader comment on item: The Lure and Peril of Arab Presidential Dynasties

Submitted by Jay1 (United States), Jun 16, 2011 at 22:35

So how, along with tyrannical rule, did many of these Middle East leaders sell me and my sons to their populace? Blaming Israel for everything kept minds distracted for one. Suggesting if not me then Mullahs was another. Simple foolish acceptance by the citizenry of these dictators rounds off the list. Sadly,the foolish acceptance of these Middle East dictators by their citizenry is almost as bizarre as the foolish acceptance by the heads of the Western world .
