Yes.  I'm still ambivalent

Yes.  I'm still ambivalent about this and I think, pretty much along the same lines as Jay (sorry Jay, I'm afraid we're in agreement) that this will work out for the best.

But you have to be suspicious about the role of the Gulf dictatorships in this.  I can't help thinking that it's a bit like turkeys voting for Christmas.  Surely, even though they hate Daffy, they'd hate more to see a popular insurrection against a dictatorship succeed?  You have to wonder what they've been offered in return.  A free pass to massacre their own democracy activists perhaps?  Though I'm sure the vile Clinton will call for restraint on both sides!
