Our dedication to democracy is a two-edged blade.  We have to wonder if these dictators like Assad and Gaddafi were not better than their replacements.  They may have been evil, but they kept Islamic fundamentalists in the alternative movement.  Now that they are gone, the Islamic fundamentalists are in the mainstream in a lot of cases.  But on the other hand, maybe that is better: terrorists don't have return addresses, but foreign governments do.  At least we'll know who the perpetrators are.
