    one way or another, and if we tacitly support those dictators we only bestow on the Islamists the mantle of the Liberator, like with Khomenei.

    But on the other hand, that same reasoning argues for nonintervantion in Syria, because any faction we foster will be called puppets and illegitimate by the Islamists.

    But on the other other hand, the people of Syria want this over, would be glad for outside help and are perfectly able to discern who's a puppet.

    I go with that last paragraph.  As for the militias, these countries will have to work out their own national cohesion. Bottom line: dictators legitimize jihadis.
