The reminder of the vulnerability of despots is a powerful restraint to knee-jerk public thinking. I can only hope that our foreign policy experts understand and are guided in their work by your point. That means to have clear diagnoses of the errors that the tyrants of the world are making or heading towards. Your reminder also raises question as to whether another 600 million dollars is need to wearch for WMD in Iraq. It is only needed if we are not satisfied with the results so far. Your point, otherwise, is worth at least 600 million.
