Movement in Iran

Sullivan nails it:

“This is more like the American revolution than the French one… What the Mousavi movement wants is a revolution within the system. What they want it perestroika and glasnost. Of course, Khamenei and Ahmadinejad realize that this could lead to what perestroika and glasnost led to in Russia: the end of everything.”

It’s January 2009 in Iraq

and the carnage continues. But don’t worry, Cheney says the US is close to achieving its goals, which I imagine to be somewhat less ambitious than they once were.

Interestingly, Andrew Sullivan concurs with a view I expressed as long ago as 2005. That is to say:  “We will either leave Iraq in a bloodbath or we will never leave Iraq.”

Not saying I got there first, just sayin’.
