jakomo002: pxsteel: Egypt is already lost to the brotherhood. A major war between Israel and Egypt is in our not to distant future.I doubt it. Hillary was there to bribe them or threaten them into cooperation with Israel. She went straight to Jerusalem after Egypt to essentially tell the Israelis as much.Israel's focus is, as it has been for decades, Iran.
AliceBToklasLives: wantingout: democracy? do you mean the fake corporate- driven democracy that the US is currently attempting to violently install in the middle east?no, no, no - a republic, not a democracy
GAT_00: Also, Syria is the only Middle East client state Moscow has left.
Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: The last thing Russia and China want to do is go around legitimizing popular uprisings.

Big Man On Campus: Democracy has unfortunately become a meaningless word, used by politicians of all stripes to get what they want. They don't fear this word, they incorporate it into their plans.
WTF Indeed: No, because this is a proxy war between Iran and the Saudis over influence in the Middle East. Russia has strong ties with Iran, and if Iran's regional power is weakened, so is Russia's. The US is currently backing the Saudis, Egyptians, and Israelis. Therefore the loss of Syria would make Iran the last power base for Russia and China in the region.
limeyfellow: Tell Me How My Blog Tastes: What the hell makes anyone think that the system that replaces the Alawites in Syria will be democratic? The Muslim Brotherhood has like an 80% chance of taking over, and about a 5% chance of being democratic. Soo...When the brutal dictators like the Shah of Iran, Batista in Cuba, etc are overthrown, we always end up with shining examples of democracy and freedom though.
