Iran's failure to overthrow their autocrats was a moral victory that put down an emotional deposit that Tunisia, Egypt, and soon other countries have started to cash. This is the progress liberalism in particular has been pining for, for ages.

This progress will bring more of the Middle East with it, it totally will. The only question will be when. It's possible that the entire region could democratize in a lifetime.

At that point, the world will continue to get so much smaller, peace will surely expand, freedom will reign, and justice will continue to attract the arc of history as it moves forward.

Peace be with Egypt.
When are you going to give due credit to GWBush and the neocons for departing from the decades-long stability-at-all-costs Middle East model?
