Has it never occurred to you that destabilization and ruining was the precise objective of the so called "Arab Spring" ? If the master of the world is weak and broke and yet he wants to remain atop the pyramid of world power for ever, then he has few options except making his rival even weaker by creating destabilization and chaos in the areas which are or may be of any use for the rival. It is obvious that China lost most in Libya and that the unleashed forces of jihad may be channeled further against China or Russia.

Saudi Arabia and Qatar are also malignant theocracies and yet excellent friends and allies of the US.

"Libya - turning into Somalia"

But oil fields are safe for "democracy" and apparently out of reach of the Chinese oil companies, aren't they?
