Empowering Islamists and its lethal blow back.......

Reader comment on item: Libyan Blues

I have no doubt that western jubilation will be very short lived, is a dangerous fool's errand, and one which will rival the strategic disaster which led to the initial empowerment/rise of Al Qaeda. One cannot play with jihadist fire and not get burnt.

Moreover, the very fact that Hamas and the Brotherhood (plus the Iranian Hilter !) are cheering on the 'rebel' forces says it all.

Western leaders can't be THAT ignorant, unable to see where R2P(thanks Samantha) has led.Seems to me that a once dangerous, violent Middle East has now become a FULL blown powder keg, due to ignite in short order.

Living on the front lines, I do not have the luxury of 'delighting' in their mendacious stupidity and geopolitical chess games!!
