If the machines in a cloud are secure, that means that they 
do exactly what their owners want and intend them to.  

The problem arises because the users are not the owners.

Without some very strong reason to trust that the owners' 
security interests are in fact the users' security interests 
there is no reason to even consider security on such machines
to be an advantage for the user.
