To keep them out

or in?

Worried those icky democratic ideas will filter across their borders? Or worried that some of their citizens might want to live in slightly more free (yet still Arab) societies?

Won't protect them against the Iranian Bugaboo with the Bomb, though.

I'd say both. But a fence, especially in the howling deserts in that region, is pretty silly, unless they build one that can't be bypassed in some fashion....which is difficult to do, even at $3 billion. I've been involved with similar but MUCH smaller projects, and fences are pretty much the only way to keep honest people out.

Or in.
