Ahmadinejad on the way out?
We in the west often see Iran as monolithically conservative, and Ahmadinejad as the Iranian’s champion. Truth is, he represents Iran accurately even less than Mr. Bush’s views are typical of every American. Iran is a big, diverse country with the ultra-right currently, but likely not permanently, in power.And if the USA remains belligerent toward Iran, which faction of Iranian society will gain strength? Probably the ones most anti-American. That’s a large part of how we got to where we are today. Let’s hope for a bigger vision this time around.
