The Best Way to Deal with Iran

from Andrew Sullivan:

We may begin to see more pieces in the left-wing media about reformist potential in Iran. Here's one in the Guardian today. They're trying to allay fears about Ahmadinejad. But they may also be onto something. Few doubt that Persians as a whole are often pro-Western and chafing at the constraints the mullahs place on ordinary life. The attempt to organize a democratic alternative to Ahmadinejad next year may not be hopeless if some elements in the elite support it.

ryan the filthy centrist:

Of course there are no comments on this subject. Instead, people will continue with the stereotypes, and ignore the fact that Iran, like most human populations, is hardly a monolithic cultural or political entity.

Possibilties for solutions often lie in these "cracks," as Sullivan calls them.
