JKF, RFK, MLK, Malcolm X, and more recently, Paul Wellstone: the deaths (murders?) of every single "inconvenient" leader effectively destroyed any chance the USA had of a normal democratic political system. In no other western nation that I'm aware of did such a series of deaths occur, with the exception of the Irish Nationalist community in Northern Ireland in the period of 1969-1995. Not the kind of company you want to keep.
