News coming out of Iran or about Iran has been strangely quiet (or I’m missing it in all furor about Libya and the other countries with toppling governments or heated protests). I know there are protests going on there, but does anyone have a feel for what’s happening? The only article I’ve seen on this lately was this one, where Ahmadinejad was urging ME and NA leaders to listen to the voices of their populations (yes…irony is still alive an well).
They don’t get into a lot of detail here on what, if anything is going on. Just a few things:
So…anyone have any idea of what’s going on in Iran these days? How likely are we to see the Iranian government fall, or at least reform? How large is the protest movement in Iran, how wide spread is it, how much traction does or might it have? What might the Iranians do to keep this protest movement down, in light of what they did the last time…and in light of what’s happening in Libya?
And what effect would Iran going up in flames have on things like the currently skyrocketing oil commodities market? On the stability of the region?
