favoured dictator

Posted on

There is a game plan… When there’s a favoured dictator and he’s getting into trouble, support him as long as possible. When it becomes impossible… send him off somewhere, issue ringing declarations about your love of democracy, and then try to restore the old regime, maybe with new names. And that’s done over and over again. It doesn’t always work… [but] that’s what’s going on in Egypt and Tunisia. – Noam Chomsky
