Well, I guess we'll never agree about those things... we're basically at the same point now with Ryan&McLaren vs. FIA as we were earlier with Hamilton vs. Ryan.
You always seem to take the stance that there can't anything be done about it, the supposedly less powerful party just has to bend over regardless.
I disagree, and there could even be made a stance that had Hamilton showed a bit of brain (and spine) we wouldn't even talk about all this.
I predict something similar with that slimey sack of Ryan by McLaren. It won't save them from the FIA's wrath, the whole course of action is simply too transparent for that. The only thing they achieved is to humilate themselves further.
Yet I still entertain that glimmer of hope that they didn't really fire him just like that, but that there is internally an understanding between Mclaren and Ryan, and some sort of compensation for the latter. Even then, he must feel like his whole working life thrown down the gutter.
