    Sedition is pretty fun. French have even helped weaker foreigners, when they are incapable of performing a successful sedition on their own. So, let's stay close to the subject:

    Thick moustaches were not very trendy in the land of the rising sun. Anyway, the assassinated man was not a puny prime-minister or a petty dictator, but a leader of much more illustrious origins. It happened in the '30s.

    I believe in Afghanistan a coup is considered a legal succession
