4. A friend of mine
Who was born in Jerusalem, spent his childhood in Jordan and went to school in Iraq, courtesy of Saddam Hussein (he's been in this country since 1983), once told me that if Saddam hadn't existed, they would have had to invent him. They're used to a strongman and don't know how to deal with anything else. It's hard to export democracy if the recipients have no concept of what that is... :(
