The ironic thing is that the same people who support the notion that "an enemy of the West is a friend of mine" are the same ones who berate the West for employing the same realpolitik in foreign affairs.I couldn't agree more.
The stoppers are quite happy to side with murderous jihadists that wish to destroy the West in an alliance of convenience, but when the west happened to support Saddam against what they considered was the greater threat of Iran in the 80s, they're accused of hypocrisy.
It seems that one can then be hypocritical about being hypocritical.
