Comments by United Arab Emirates ambassador to the United States
A few weeks ago, in uncommonly direct remarks, the ambassador of the United Arab Emirates to the United States, Yousef al-Otaiba, told me—in a public forum at the Aspen Ideas Festival—that his country would support a military strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities. He also said that if America allowed Iran to cross the nuclear threshold, the small Arab countries of the Gulf would have no choice but to leave the American orbit and ally themselves with Iran, out of self-protection.

I would hardly consider the United Arab Emirates ambassador to the United States a reliable source in this situation.

The game has always been domination, always will. Rather we live on this planet or take to the stars. I'd prefer to be on the winning team. Embrace democracy or you will be eradicated!

In hindsight, Iraq with Saddam would have been a nice counter to the rise of Iran.
The devil you know, is better than the devil you don't know.
I am afraid we are now stuck with the devil of the unknown...
