In his "Iron Curtain" speech, delivered exactly 60 years ago, Winston Churchill brilliantly defined an era. The speech may also have lessons for the present.

It was a heroic but troubled time. The world was in turmoil after the most terrible conflict in human history.

On 5 March 1946 Churchill was no longer the UK's prime minister but he still enjoyed a giant reputation around the world.

So US President Harry Truman himself travelled 1,000 miles to Fulton, Missouri, to hear Churchill give a speech after receiving an honorary degree at Westminster College there.

An interesting article.
Dose anybody think the speech can be applyed to todays political landscape ?
If so How ?
Do Middle Eastern and African governments with the expection of Irasel , Iraq and South Africa form an iron Curtain ?
