the arab "moderates" may tell you what you want to hear to escape the wrath of the US, especially after Saddam's murder. but i kid you not, soon as they have to chose between pleasing their own people and pleasing israel/US, they will ditch you at the first stop. remember how the late king hussain went against the international community during the Iraq-Kuwait war. He was smart and realized better a poor king over a kingdom, then an exiled and humiliated x-king, like the Shah of Iran. the Arab world is rapidly approaching the point of explosion and the regimes are sensing it soon will start distancing themselves from the US.
