Michael Ledeen: "The Iranian Death Spiral Speeds Up."
If only there were a Western leader with the prescience and courage to support the Greens, we would find many terrible problems a lot easier to manage: Iraq and Afghanistan would go better, the tyrant Chavez and his “Bolivarian” Axis of Latin Evildoers would be weakened, and the misnamed “peace process” might even have a chance.
But no. This is an era of weak Western leadership, as we all know. We’ll get there eventually, but it’s going to be a lot slower and a great deal tougher than necessary.
UPDATE: As advertised, the regime executed eleven prisoners in Zahedan on Monday the 20th. And those are just the ones they told us about…
SORRY, make it twelve.
