Iran’s gambit… Failed…


Here’s a great article over at the Guardian.

The basic premise, which is worth noting is that the election was a sham, and so no amount of legitimacy can be conferred upon Ahmadenijad. He and the mullahs may want to claim they’re a legitimate government, but the rest of the world knows different.

While you’re here, you might also want to check out Hot Air’s afternoon update on the protests in Iran. Somehow, I think when 2-3 million people take to the streets, the calculus of the equation changes. Now the government can’t brutally oppress people because they know the world is focused on what is happening in Tehran.
