- Al Saud (vastly extended) family in Saudi Arabia
- The Shah of Iran
- Saddam Hussein (until he got a mind of his own)
- and now, President Musharraf of Pakistan.
Dictators everyone, and all backed financially and militarily by the US, despite the views of the public they were supposed to represent.
The one good sign is the Condoleeza Rice seems to have put down a marker, and demanding free and fair elections in January.
The down side is that the main opposition - Benazir Bhutto - has a less than clean history, and the US history of replacing one puppet with another is a recipe for things getting worse, rather than better, as their interventions in South America have repeatedly proven.
