MORE ON THE SITUATION IN IRAN FROM TWO SCHOLARS
and Micheal Ledeen
My view of the Iranian regime is that they are now the Islamist equivalent of Erich Honecker and the Stasi in the late 1980's. Unlike Honecker and his Communist cronies however, there is no fallback position for Khameini, Rafsanjani and the torturers of the Pasdaran. If they fall from power their bodies could well be swinging from lamposts and construction cranes in Teheran the way democrats, monarchists and communists once did under Ayatollah Khomeini. Unfortunately, these people are up to their ears in international terrorism and have been at war with the United States and killing Americans sporadically since 1979 and will never stop. The regime must go, preferably at the hands of the Iranian people and if not, then with some help from the United States.
I see Riting on the Wall
