The ongoing struggle for freedom and democracy in the Middle East continues to be challenged by autocratic regimes, occupation forces, heavilyarmed militias, and extremist groups, but the largely nonviolent civil insurrections--which have toppled three dictators and have challenged others--continue. What role should the United States, which professes support for democracy but has long been the major foreign backer of repressive governments in the region, play in the face of this ongoing popular struggle?
