Economic factors work against US-backed regimes
Western think-tanks and “impartial” Western academic institutions often exaggerate the economic performance of Western-backed autocracies in the Muslim world to give their neo-colonial policies some “credibility.” Prior to the overthrow of the corrupt and incompetent regime of Ben Ali in Tunisia, western think tanks were singing his praises. Typically, a leading British think-tank Chatham House in its report published after the Tunisian uprising, described the pre-revolutionary Tunisian economy as robust.Such exaggerated claims that are made out of context about pro-US entities are used to justify Western support for illegitimate regimes in economic terms. It gives Western policy makes room to claim that “we are supporting regimes that are improving the lives of their people at least in economic terms.” This line is frequently used to justify the support for the despotic Saudi regime.The fact that Western institutions are forced to admit that their proxies are not doing well economically is a sign that pro-US regimes have no chance of surviving the process of Islamic Awakening. They can merely delay but not stop the process of change.
