Election riots in Iran

Michael Totten: Iran on Fire (continuous coverage)

Oppressive governments that face ferocious resistance in the streets often don’t last very long. The Islamic Republic regime has been durable so far, and reports of its imminent demise have been premature, but there is only so much it can withstand.

    Stunning events. Totten has a new thread up which is a must-read.

    I’ve hoped for so long to see the downfall of this vile regime, I hardly dare hope it might really be happening, but this does seem different from the previous eruptions we’ve seen in Iran over the years. People are losing their fear and there’s open dissension between major clerics.

    This blog has lots more photos and videos.

    People are losing their fear and their message is being spread despite the best efforts of governments and the newsmedia.

    Oh, and the malign gargoyles of America’s ‘diplomatic’ corps are joining in their efforts to crush the Iranian pro-democracy movement.

    Iran ‘expert’ Flynt Leverett, who has been trying for years to get the American government to give in to Iran’s extortion says that Ahmadinejad was the clear winner of the election. Now, Leverett says, “the US has to make the regime an offer.”

    What would we do without these ‘experts’?
