in response to reader comment: Dreams support you

Mongols have been having a lot of Christians in their ranks when they created the Ilkhanid dynasty. Kitbuka al-naiman was a famous Mongol Christian.

Well the Arab world did have many secular governments such as Syria, Iraq and Libya. Well the West and Israel destroyed them for the simple reason that they were unwilling to toe the Western line.

Some of the most horrible regimes like Saudi Arabaia and Bahrain have been propped up by the West and Israel under the so-called Abraham accords for the simple reason that these regimes always put their own survival interests before any popular will or democracy.

In short that is the type of regime the West wants in the West Asian region. Pilant, subservient , always looking the other way when Israel commits another assasination. That model like every Western intervention has a sell-by date.

I welcome your views on my views.
