Tunisia to the dismay of Saudi

An influential Saudi daily reports on Tunisia http://www.asharq-e.com/news.asp?section=2&id=23785
Confused and lacking any insight but truly Saudi. Almost a request to stop supporting unreliable dictators (Saddam mentioned along with Bin Ali) because the scene of collapsing regimes wasn't good for them, or the US for that matter.
Here's a sumation;
1 Why doesn’t this happen where we want
2 We don't know what happened
3 US policy is at fault
4 Kingdoms and Emirates are far more open than Republics (So they say)
5 And a very sarcastic argument for Democracys to be stable, sort of? More of a poke in the eye because ME watchers watch them, a little told you so sarcasm? Kingdoms are better!
