In Iran there has been numerous protests for the last couple of months, and some people have commentated on how it will bring down the Iranian government. Currently there are riots in Tehran, and Mousavis nephew has just been killed by government forces.
I personally have two conflicting views, I see this, however unfortunate, as something akin to the ‘Prague Spring’ That the Czechs had, and it will take the current generation of protestors to somehow, work through the system in order to bring down it’s fall, if at all.
Or, the Islamic government will be brough down and a new improved Islamic light regime will be put in it’s place. I don’t expect radical changes, even if they do succeed, they’ll still have to placate that minority of conservatives to get them on board.
