Michael Ledeen Neocon or Trotskyite? - You decide

alternative hippopotamus: "Michael Ledeen, today:
Iran’s nuclear weapons program is a threat to revolution, not to stability. We don’t want stability in the Middle East, we want democratic revolution. And if the mullahs get their bomb, they will attempt to impose a lethal stability on the region.
Trotsky, 1905:
"Arming the revolution, in Russia, means first and foremost arming the workers. Knowing this, and fearing this, the liberals altogether eschew a militia. They even surrender their position to absolutism without a fight just as the bourgeois Thiers surrendered Paris and France to Bismarck simply to avoid arming the workers.""
