It Isn’t About Us

Whatever is happening in Iran, it is about Iranian dissatisfaction with the (as yet unproven per se, but likely) corruption and incompetence of the Iranian government. This is why it’s so silly to read something like this about how the success of the protesters in Iran turns on the support of Western bloggers and Twitter users. This is not, incidentally, to say that one should stay silent about the matter, merely that those comfortably ensconced in the West should deflate their since of heroism. It is worth remembering that Iranians are perfectly capable of overthrowing an unjust government, they did the same thing just 30 years ago.
