The Corner

Thomas Friedman

I seem to recall an argument with someone about the nature of democracy in Iran. Tom Friedman has some thoughts today:

In Iran’s sham “Islamic democracy,” only the mullahs decide who can run. Over time, Iranian Shiites will demand to know why they can’t have the same freedoms as their Iraqi cousins right next door. That will drive change in Iran. Just be patient.
