11. I don't agree.

Dictators kill anything that is a threat to their power. They keep a death grip on their power. Removing a dictator releases that hold, creating a power vacuum. This creates the perfect conditions for extremists to take over.

ISIS flourished because of the many power vacuums formed by the US's failed foreign policy in the region.
