Cyrus, the Persians and western benevolence coming to the big screen

For those interested in reaching back about 2,500 years in time, Regime Change Iran links to a video clip on Cyrus the Great, founder of the Persian Empire. Cyrus was one of the first conqerors who chose not to slaughter his defeated opponents. In fact, he showed devotion to their customs. Work is underway on film documentary of Cyrus and a British filmmaker has announced plans to produce a feature-length movie on the ruler. Entertaining clip for those who love history.
