But wait, there's more!

Remember how the "Arab spring" was hailed? Except when Mubarak, a US client, was overthrown? The Muslim Brotherhood was voted in. OOPS! Can't have that. So another coup, another repressive junta, which the US embraces. People hit the streets in Bahrain too. Another US client. So the US looks the other way when the Saudi military marches in to put down the protests.

Seems US foreign policy is still in the black/white cold war mindset, where it gladly embraces the most deplorable regimes imaginable, as long as they pay lip service to being "good anti-Communists".
