      But even worse, it's a brutal police state that was installed by western leaders.

      Which is about par for the course for foreign leaders we in the west support in former colonies, unfortunately.

      I remember him actually saying that during the time he spent in Jordan, he heard quite a few people say they expected a large-scale uprising sometime in the near future.  I believe the specific quote he told us was "It started with an Abdullah, and it will end with an Abdullah."

      May be a bit optimistic, but I think it gives a good idea of how many in Jordan view their ruler.
