8. It also feeds into their fantasy of a Western military fighting “the barbarians”.

I assume that was the reason for the support of the apartheid regime as well. Notice how often you hear talk about Israel being the only Western-style democracy in the middle east or whether or not you want to wear a burqa. These are the same people that want a militarized police force that brutalizes minorities. So they get giddy when they see something that looks like that in other countries.
