#2 I'm hoping for Morocco.

Why?

In one of the books about 9-11 ("The Case"? something like that), it's revealed that while he was living in Germany, Mohammed Atef was taken to a showing of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves". He apparently sat stone-faced through the entire movie, muttering "chaos, chaos".

In comparison, the King of Morocco sent skiled artisans AND HIS PERSONAL CHEF to help set up the Moroccan section of Epcot.

Morocco deserves our support for, apparently, being the opposite of the jihadi nutjobs we're fighting.

#3 My family ate in Morocco's Epcot exhibit. The kids liked how they poured tea from about three feet above the glass.

The transit across the straits seems to have kept them fairly moderate. The other countries in the area don't appear to be stable at all.

The fact that Algerian government sources are spilling the beans about the talks don't speak well for their government. We also have a poor history of military action in former French colonies. Algeria must be a real long shot.
