Iran - A Year Later, Ctd

Joe Klein reads Reuel Marc Gerecht's latest op-ed:

I do believe that Gerecht overstates the capacity of the Green Movement to succeed in toppling the current, odious regime. To win, the reformers will have to find an alliance with the quietist members of the religious community; the bazaaris, whose businesses are being hurt by Iran's increasing commercial isolation (not just the sanctions, but the unilateral decision by an increasing number of international corporations not to do business with this regime); and some of the more moderate "principleist" conservatives, who will be favored candidates in the next election.

Larison piles on. And the Leveretts dust off their old song and dance.
