    That's a complicated questions but any new government is going to be unstable. Then you have various groups angling for the oil, gold and Sovereign wealth fund. Finally you have population who I'm sure have old grudges based on past treatment and religion. A country starting over is a complicated task if you have the best of circumstances. Remember Yeltsin sending tanks to bomb the parliament.

    I do find that kind of language disgusting but their politicians and the only reason they do it is because there's an audience for it. There have been numerous surveys in the last years testing Americans basic civics knowledge and talk about disgusting take a look at some of these results...

    Americans put to shame by immigrants on sample civics test

    Failing Grades On Civics Exam. A Crisis

    American Civic Literacy

    Considering how little we know about basic civics how much do you think we understand about the history of labor laws, drug safety testing, banking etc... It's hard not to hate\blame the politicians but the sad truth is most of us are woefully under-informed. I consider myself one of those people and I know more that most people I meet. Talk about frightening. Did all the smart people stop reproducing 30 years ago?

    Because a squad of men conducted a coordinated and preplanned assault on his building while protests went on outside? Is that not the right answer?

    That should be "they're politicians" not "their politicians" but it was too late to edit

    if you must ask then your ignorance of the events staggers me !
    The question is more important than the answer!
