The US Declares Permanent War in Arab Winter

How ISIS and Syria drove a stake through the Arab Spring

The rise of ISIS is a setback for reform in a region that is crying out for it

The fact is that like it or not, the Brotherhood won the democratic election in Egypt fair and square. The West’s response?
Well, uh, democracy is fine for the rest of us, but obviously, Egypt ‘doesn’t get it’ and we can’t have a fundamentalist high-jacking our attempts to ‘democratize’ Egypt..so we’ll force the issue, get rid of the legitimately elected President, and wipe out a few thousand of his supporters…then sit back and ponder why the rise of ISIS seems so inevitable…
ISIS is a Frankenstein monster of the US’s creation (as was the propping up of Mubarek for all those decades)…in Syria, in Egypt, in the middle East generally..the political manipulation to control oil rich states has backfired…it was inevitable.

In this  article, Ms Ayed blames  the former corrupt regimes for not being more flexible regarding the  desires of the young in their countries for change…but who  were those shadowy characters in the background,  the US reps propping up those old regimes?

What does the US gain from this setback? Time, and a chance to stop reform in its tracks, thus subsidizing the US arms dealers while  propping up the oil corps’ control in the regions..what little control they have left..war of any kind is always  good for a lagging economy in the capitalist system…

It is beyond ironic that ISIS is financing it’s war with revenues from captured oil fields…
