There’s a lot being made of the post-election unrest in Iran. Some people are getting tingles up their spines and proclaiming it the beginning of the end for the Iranian theocracy. I’m going to go on record and say that this is just wishful thinking. Mousavi isn’t much better than Ahmadinejad and even if the whole thing explodes into civil war, the end result would be no better for the US. Not to mention the fact that the sitting US President just sent a huge love note to the “Muslim world” and somehow aiding the opposition would greatly contradict that. And, you know, Obama never contradicts himself.
There you go. I’m on record. Check back in a few weeks and see if I’m eating crow pot pie.
