Totally agree with Dr. DP

Reader comment on item: Support Assad

After witnessing what happened with the so called "Arab Spring", another Islamist regime in Syria is going to be a nightmare and the best for the West to do is nothing.

We were excited when the youth movement of Egypt won. We thought a new middle eastern era has just begun. We forgot for a while that Islam and democracy are not compatible. Moslem Brotherhood, Salafis and Wahabbists do not and will not believe in democracy and the rule of laws, therefore, the best policy is to keep them busy fighting each others.
