IRAN-U.S. in the Midst of

Arab Revolutions

Following 18 days of the earth-shaking mass movement of the people of Egypt and despite the foxy maneuvers of the US-allied and torture-friendly regime of Hosni Mubarak, the outcome was not only the downfall of a Middle Eastern autocratic regime but also a strategic defeat for a long-term model of building U.S. hegemony through installing heavily armed dependent dictatorships. 

 

While such revolutionary upheavals have gripped the North African and Middle Eastern societies, why haven't similar developments occurred in Iran?  What are the similarities and differences between Iran and the countries impacted by these mass movements?
