    We either sustain dictators in the ME or we don't. These dictators either oppress and kill their population or they don't.

    The ME is listed as 2% free by Freedom House

    And one of the reasons it is not free is because of this:

      I don't trust Chomsky's analysis or rather solutions and recommendations. Yes, our policies do lead to oppressive governments. Guess what? The opposition is not different. Despite their rhetoric and talk and plans that they tell the West, there really is no difference.

      Does that make us right? No. Would groups that brutally ascend to power and then use brutality to maintain that power still exist and dominate? Yes.

      Chomsky is an intelligent man and a talented linguist but that's about it.
