To say that these events all happen in a vacuum without affecting one another, especially as they all reference one another during their demonstrations, is foolhardy.
Because you wrote this: "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."
Again, I don't see any evidence that what has happened in Iran had any bearing on what happened in Tunisia and Egypt.
