Reprise: Blood and Democracy

By Larry Leonard

“There has never been in the history of the world a country in which a regime change happened at the bayonets of guns that has led to stability.” — Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal

Some were the result of armed revolutions against internal tyrants. The Republic of France is one of those.. Other regime changes came about as a result of foreign invasion. This list includes Germany, Japan and Italy. The most stable nations in the world were created at the bayonets of guns. Prince Saud al-Faisal, in making such a ridiculous statement, displays a complete ignorance of world history.
