  •  More on this topic - check Juan Cole today (6+ / 0-)

    My first read of the morning is the Univ of Michigan Mideast history professor Juan Cole. His daily blog keeps one up to date on these issues.

    Yesterday he pointed out that our Afghanistan build up will not happen right away because we have lost our supply routes.

    Today he has a long blog about Khatami's entrance to the race.

      I thought Khatami was a lost opportunity.  A president open to reform, but facing a reactionary U.S. administration that had no interest at all in reconciliation.  I thought that chance was gone forever.  But now Khatami offers a second chance.  We can only hope that Iranian voters follow U.S. voters in rejecting beligerent reactionaries, and that Obama and Khatami might actually act on forming a detente.
