Mudge on Iran

From Big Fat Free For All Friday, Mudge asks:

This from the LA Times report of today's resurgence of unrest in Tehran:

"As hard-liners repeated their signature cries of "Death to America" and "Death to Israel," riled-up Mousavi supporters overpowered them with chants of "Death to Russia" and "Death to China," the Islamic Republic's powerful United Nations Security Council protectors."

To what degree do you think Iranians have been encouraged to take on their clerics/dictators after watching Sadaam Hussein overthrown next door? Of course, such a discussion would not occur in the MSM so thought I'd raise it here.

Mudge--Reuel Marc Gerecht--former CIA operative who writes for the Weekly Standard--has a great column on the state of play in Iran:

While I won't rule out the impact of Saddam's removal on those agitating against the mullahs, I'd like to see/hear some more evidence from those leading the opposition that such was the case before I believed it.
