U.S. lip service to democratic principles

It is clearly better to support dictatorships rather democracy movements when the dictatorships are our "friends." See U.S. 'Paid a Price' on Egypt - Yahoo! News:
"Retired Marine Gen. James Jones, who served as national security adviser in 2009-10, told a private meeting at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce that the United States’ Persian Gulf allies interpret the president’s handling of the Egyptian revolution as a sign thatWashington will dump their monarchies or governments if enough demonstrators take to their streets."
