Jscotlive: "Iran is explicitly NOT a hegemonic power."

Iran may not be a hegemonic power today but it's certainly the remnant 
of a large imperial state that vied with other empires (Czarist Russia, 
Ottoman Turkey, Imperial Britain) for control of territory (Kurdistan, 
Azerbaijan, Afghanistan, Baluchistan). As a reflection of its former imperial 
status nearly half the people living within modern Iran's borders belong to 
an ethnic minority.
