If you're wondering how desperate right-wingers are to rebuff any challenge to their contention that MAHMOUD AHMADINEJAD IS THE SCARIEST EVIL DICTATOR EVER!!!!!, consider Mark Steyn's response at National Review Online to Rick Perlstein's blog post about the warm reception Nikita Khrushchev received in America in 1959. Steyn writes:

...before we all get carried away with these Krushchev/Ahmadinejad comparisons, it's worth remembering what the Commies didn't do.... Even at the height of the Cold War, the USSR maintained the minimal courtesies between sovereign states.

Pictured above are tanks in the streets of Budapest in 1956 maintaining the minimal courtesies between the USSR and the sovereign state of Hungary, which wanted to break away from the Soviet bloc.
