Troops in Middle East: One question

President Barack Obama may have said that we will withdraw our troops within the year but we will maintain our presence in the Middle East (like Kuwait, Oman, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, and Saudi Arabia). I have one and the media must press the administration on this question consistently.

If the Arab Spring revolutions which have toppled the dictators in Egypt, Libya and Tunisia spreads to those countries where our forces are on the ground, what will our reaction be? Will American forces aid the protesters or stand by the sidelines when the repressive governments that we have sponsored tries to put them down? As long as we have troops on the ground we will not be able to avoid the fall out that would follow. We'll have to pick a side.
