Those who are fighting the right-wing government of Iran seem to be poised for revolution, and the mood in the country sounds amazing. You probably read that several of their soccer players sported green armbands (symbols of Mousavi) in their game against South Korea.

Of course, they're having a harder time because their electoral institutions are more corrupt than ours. I think it would be marvelous if they succeeded. It's interesting to watch how Obama plays this. He's been one of the bolder western leaders (though Sarkozy was very outspoken against the Iranian government today), but I guess he thinks American interests require us to be prepared in the likelihood that the current regime holds onto power. I think that's the reason that the American right is no more vocal on this issue than the left.
