Having devoted rhetorically to the West's basic political discourse of democracy and human rights, the dictators in Tehran, Tunis, and Cairo stumbled on themselves paralyzed whilst nonviolent crowds challenged them with strategies and demands
fully appropriate with the political beliefs the regimes claimed as their own.
