The last thing the US needs is a peaceful transition in to a democracy, while we support the dictator. Hillary just had a huge meeting with all ambassadors to get talking points straight. Look for CIA/Mossad agitation to start to discredit the revolution and allow an army crackdown. Looking at a 50/50 on this right now, best time would be during demonstration.
