Ridding the Mideast of Authoritarian figures

Reader comment on item: What Rex Tillerson Thinks

Submitted by Steve Klein (United States), Jan 7, 2017 at 15:04

Yep, our hero George W. Bush rid Iraq of an authoritarian figure. Obama-Clinton rid Libya of an authoritarian figure and they rid Egypt of an authoritarian figure in Mubarak (but the Egyptian people came to their senses) and they wanted to rid Syria of a brutal authoritarian figure. All these dictators are brutal. That is the only way they can survive in this region.

How has all this ridding the Middle East of Authoritarian figures worked out since the region is in chaos and authentic Islam - the Islam of the prophet - is on the rise?
