Dr. Pipes you are rarely ever wrong and whatever mistakes you've ever made are so esoteric that only a curmudgeonly scholar might take umbrage until said scholar remembers he is reading the critical analysis of Dr. Daniel Pipes.

The turmoil, the war, the fighting, the slaughter, the massacre in the Arab Middle East is as it was in the beginning when the Arabs took control of North Africa from the Berbers and when they spread Islam. They conquer destroying the past and ensconcing themselves and their Islamic hegemony, mysogyny, enslavement, economics, warfare, caliphate, Sharia, social structures, political system of the few over the many and sharia. As they were in the Sixth Century nothing so they remain in the Twenty First Century. Not even their clothes have changed!!!!! It's just more battles and another war over power and wealth. The new regimes will be mirror the old regimes only the names will change .... the berquas, the veils, the robes and their insanity will remain tied to the black muck that comes out of the sands on which they all live but where only a few reap the rewards.

Bravisimo Dr. Pipes!!!!! You've analyzed the Middle Eastern turmoil for what it is "a dead-end despotism will be replaced by the agents of a worldwide ideological movement. I fear that Western forces will have brought civilization's worst enemies to power." Not all the Western rhetoric nor all the rockets and drones or even NATO forces will create even one sane, democratic and peaceful Islamic Oil Rich Nation. When one side kills more than the other side the nations will return with new "deeply" religious dictators with or seeking atomic weapons made possible by the naive West.
