No Matter What Happens In Iran, Will The Uprising Have An Impact Throughout The World? Simon Rosenberg believes so:
Much has been written about the how events unfolding in Iran are crossing some kind of internal Iranian Rubicon. Fareed Zakaria has a new essay to this effect. But there is a strong argument to be made that the world is crossing that Rubicon right along with the Iranians, and that we wiill all be in a new place together after these extraordinary set of events. I won’t argue that we will begin to see street demonstrations in other parts of the world now, but there can be no doubt that the inconvenient and of course critically important issue of political freedom has been introduced into the great global conversation in a way it has not been for a long, long time. And where that takes us is still to early to tell, but we do know that this new place almost has to be better than where we’ve been.
Also be sure to read Matt Eckel’s take on events in Iran. And here’s an analysis contending that the Islamic Republic will lose the war against Iran. The Christian Science Monitor also notes that trust in the Islamic Revolution is what’s at stake. Meanwhile, Iran is becoming the world’s biggest prison for journalists.
