Reader comment on item: Better Dictators than Elected Islamists

Submitted by Stas (Ukraine), Dec 24, 2012 at 01:39

The fact that these people are making a free choice to elect Islamists makes it impossible to even discuss when democratic process is idolized in the West. No one can stop them from taking themselves into barbaric sharia and oppressive customs that will become more and more restrictive, of course along with the usual dose of anti-Western invective. The result is really very little different for the west than from the deposed dictator, except that relations of political interactions are much more difficult. Leave them to their own accords and let the natural path take its course. It hastens the always lingering realities about potential confrontations. Let's get on with it.
