    of how much of a democratizing threat Iran actually was to the Middle East, and how brutally Saudi Arabia's been wounding and trying to exterminate Iran ever since. All that damage has entrenched the elite in Iran and made them very fearful of the outside world. Failing to appreciate these circumstances leaves people to believe Khamenei and Putin just appeared out of the ether as pure malice along the lines of Stalin and other sociopaths.

    French revolutionary history is also useful here.

    That is all. Individually, I wish you the best, but collectively, my dearest hope is to outlive you - groovetronica
