Comment on Why What Worked in Egypt, Will Not Trip Up Iran by Joe P
One more reason to be suspicious of the success of “revolutions” in Arab lands is the character of these uprisings. All of them have just kicked out a single guy or family while the whole system of the previous regime remains intact. That is hardly a revolution. And neither it is looking good on democracy front. In Libya the protesters are waving the previous flag, of the Kingdom of Libya. Hardly any democracy there. Replacing an autocratic dictator with a dictator king.
