    It appears that the US Administration is caught between the Devil and the Deep Sea and has to accept the situation as pragmatically as feasible.

    There is indeed a danger that the AQ type of radical fundamentalists may use the popular support and hijack it for radical regimes that recognises nothing beyond Islam. That would be a dangerous situation.

    To believe that Islam would not play a role in the Arab world if democracy comes, would be too naive. It is the autocratic regimes who have been able to control radical Islamic fundamentalist of the AQ flavour from flourishing and now the time has come for such autocratic regime being shown the door.

    Therefore, if Islamic overtones in Arab democracies cannot be avoided, it is better to have the benign variety than the fundamental radicalism signatured by the AQ.

    Much of the radicalization has come from USA indirectly, 2 wars Iraq and Afghanistan, possible conflict in Iran ,warships and troops now in Libya, drone attacks in Pakistan. All this can be viewed (misunderstood??) as wars against muslims.
