As much as I love my Reformed brothers and learn from them, I appreciate my fellow Arminian, Christian Historian and Theologian Roger Olsen. He has a post about theological flaws (which i might have another post on) and in that post was the following comment, which I assume will be cast as some caricature or misunderstanding of Calvinism:
I liken the argument that God foreordained the fall so He could be glorified by redeeming the fallen world through Christ to a firefighter who sets a fire so he can be a hero by putting it out.
This is basically how I have seen the issue too. I think some expressions of Calvinistic theology have fatal flaws in them.
