    by a period of violence, no argument.  But all revolutions evolve.  Stalinism is gone, and the Soviet Union no longer exists, but would Imperial Czarist Russia extending into the 21st century be any better?  

    You may think Iran under the ayatollahs is as bad as under the Shah, but I seriously doubt that the majority of Iranians would agree with you.  Remember, more than 1,000,000 Iranians died to defend Iran and the regime of the ayatollahs from the Iraq invasion.

    I've lived and worked in 42 different countries during my 40+ yr career, and I came to the conclusion that America has one of the most provincial and jingoistic news media in the industrialized world.  If we didn't, we would have stopped trying to make every country look and think like Smallville, USA long ago.
