Brendan O’Neill, editor of Spiked, discusses his article “Syria and the Hole at the Heart of the Arab Revolts” about the stalemated Arab spring; why the London riots are more about mindless looting than any particular political grievance; waning US influence in the Middle East, as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton praises and condemns actions from afar, as a spectator; and how the lack of ideological congruence among rebels/protesters allows under-pressure despotic regimes to regroup and remain in power.
