Not all revolutions against repressive regimes lead to viable democracies. While some revolutions achieved their objectives, others resulted only in unstable democracies that were short-lived and followed by dictatorships – cases in point being the revolution in Czarist Russia and more recently the revolution against the Shah of Iran. Given these possibilities, what are the outlooks for Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and other nations of Southwest Asia (the Middle East) and North Africa – and with what implications to "the West" and to terrorist networks? What factors might lead to different outcomes in each of these nations? Examine the possibilities in "Fall of Western-Supported Dictatorships in the Middle East and North Africa: A New Beginning" by Farah Rishi and Mazhar Rishi, published in the latest transcultural issue of FUTUREtakes in partnership with Children Creating Bridges (CCB), Inc.
