    Well, I think Khomeini should be in. Iran still is Persia, and Khomeini was very important in history. Under the rule of the ayatollahs, Iran (Persia) became more important and a local power in the Middle East, and not longer a vassal to the West. Also, Persia respwans late in history in the 600AD start, that's way I think a 16th century LH is not that good.

    I am still willing to listen to arguments why he shouldn't be added, but I think there will not be many as most people who follow the discussion will agree with me and the others couldn't care less (I think).

    On with the discussion then:
    Saddam Hussein?

    Rhye uses Ba'athist Babylon as dynamic name, and Saddam was a membre of the Ba'ath Party. He saw Iraq as a succesor to the Babylonian civilization, and he rebuild ancient buildings like the Ishtar gate.
    I would add him, any reason not to add him?

    Add him; the chances of an actual "Babylonian" government ever returning are unlikely; he is interesting and fun.

    Persian, you mean.

    (offtopic I still believe that Iran should respawn as the respawn of Persia, with new historical targets as a new civ)

    I strongly vote to led Khomeini in

    I also woudl suggest Putin for the Russian Federation (that is Russia, when you run Universal suffrage and stuff)

    Putin

    I think 3 UHV's will be too much for a civ that spawns in the 1900's, maybe one or two and make them extra-hard. But are we going to make Iran playable anyway? Because if not then what does it need UHV's for.

    Both of those "after" leaderheads look pretty good.

    If you're still continuing this project, would 3 leaderheads per civilizations be too much to ask?
