Hopes futile over Iran's protests

As Western media salivate over a new round of Iranian post-election riots, a few things beg clarification.

Mousawi and Ahmadinejad are two sides of the same regime. Mousawi represents more affluent Iranians, while lumpens support Ahmadinejad. Mousawi and Ahmadinejad deviate on not a single issue of foreign policy.

The riots are not unprecedented; a decade ago they occurred on a similar scale. The current round of street protests is a far cry from Monday’s 300,000-strong crowd.

Both Ahmadinejad and Mousawi accept Ayatollah Khamenei as the final authority, and Khamenei supports Ahmadinejad.

The Iranian security establishment is more than capable of crushing street protests, and more than willing to do so to show its power.
