The Daily Dish | By Andrew Sullivan
Andrew Sullivan (I am big fans) writes thus:
We all know the imminent Iranian elections are circumscribed and do not mean a real transition of power. But they are an expression of popular sentiment and thereby have some impact on Iran's government, economy and foreign policy.
I am no fan of Islamist states (and I am especially upset by Iran's anti gay measures), but I do think Iran has a real polity, and I cannot really distinguish how politics in the West are different from politics in Iran, given the above description.
Certainly, there is NO rational reason to support bombing Tehran.
We in the UK seem to simply be avoiding that this might become the story of the year if Obama does not manage to restrain Netanyahu.
PS: I was not going to steal Andrew's YouTube link as well, until i realised it was set to "Meadowland", once my favourite tune!
