He backs the revolution? He's backstabbing an ally again and showing that America doesn't care about its friends.
He sits back and leaves it alone? He's incompetent and not showing leadership.
He draws a middle path respecting both sides and calling for moderation? All of the above.
It's a no-win. The situation reminds me of that Mad Magazine cover showing him all stressed out.
The above thought is several days out of date since the revolutionaries have by now won, which makes supporting them the obvious choice. I still felt it worth posting.
