Your analysis seems apt to me, except for one minor assumption that I cannot follow.

"The Arab spring was a direct product of this neocon and academic fathead meddling in the Arab and Islamic worlds." Is the assumption I speak of. I don't remember there being much indication that neocons or academics fomented/clumsily triggered the Arab spring, unless you are counting Julian Assange amongst the latter of those two groups.

I don't argue that the lib-academia and jacobin set both acted pretty much how you describe once the Arab spring was underway, regardless of how it started.
