  Saddam Hussein - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Iraqi society is divided along lines of language, religion and ethnicity; Saddam's government rested on the support of the 20% minority of largely working-class, peasant, and lower middle class Sunni Muslims, continuing a pattern that dates back at least to the British mandate authority's reliance on them as administrators.
As the Americans closed in, and realising that Baghdad was lost, Saddam arranged for cars to collect his eldest daughters Raghad and Rana and drive them to Syria.
Saddam Hussein was at the top of the "most-wanted list," and many of the other leaders of the Iraqi government were arrested, but extensive efforts to find him had little effect.

 BBC NEWS | Have Your Say | What difference will the Iranian protests make?
Today, Iranians are NOT fighting on behalf of their incompetent President, or the reformist camp, but for the unconditional overthrow of the Islamic Republic.
Iranian revolution in 1977 and departure of the Shah was for more democracy and freedom not another form of dictatorship.
Mothers were crying and trying to find their sons, cars in traffic were pushing their horns to show their partnership in the protest, but motorcyclists tried to stop them by threatening them.....

The figure for passenger cars was 14.85 deaths for each 100,000 registered; pickups were slightly higher than cars at 15.17 deaths per 100,000, while vans were lowest at 11.2 occupant deaths for every 100,000 registered.
In a federal crash study this year, large passenger cars and station wagons, averaging about 3,600 pounds unloaded, were found to have a death rate of 3.3 for each billion miles traveled; they were second only to minivans, which had a rate of 2.76.
Smaller cars are easier to maneuver, and especially to park, but may not be as comfortable, particularly for long trips and long-legged and large passengers.

 Sport - Facts, Information, and Encyclopedia Reference article
Ancient Persian sports such as the traditional Iranian martial art of Zurkhaneh had a close connection to the warfare skills.
Ice skating and Tai chi, for example, are sports that come close to artistic spectacles in themselves: to watch these activities comes close to the experience of spectating at a ballet.
So an aesthetically pleasing car is one which doesn't just get from A to B, but which impresses us with its grace, poise, and charisma.

If the Iranians ever learned that the NSA was reading their messages, they would stop using the broken encryption machines, and the NSA's source of Iranian secrets would dry up.
The Iranians have undoubtedly changed their encryption machines, and the NSA has lost its source of Iranian secrets.
Maybe the Iranians figured it out some other way, and they are pretending that Chalabi told them in order to protect some other intelligence source of theirs.

In short, most Iranians have arrived at a common conclusion, violence and the kind of revolution they orchestrated repeatedly over the last century, only caused further restrictions and a turmoil that enabled the unsavory elements to gain power and even steal their movement.
