Comment on Iran

Andrew Sullivan may be doing a great job of ‘live blogging’ the so called green revolution happening in Iran right now, but it should be borne in mind that both Mousavi and Ahmadinejad are members of the ruling elite explicitly sanctioned and officially approved by the grand mullahs who really rule Iran. Unless the mullahs led by Grand Ayatollah Ali Hoseyni Khamene’i are deposed, I am not sure how much Mousavi can really accomplish. Of course, one of the products of having a little more liberal Mir-Hossein Mousavi is that the usual saber rattling towards Israel is bound to reduce unlike Mr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who makes it part of his daily schedule.
