gary's choices - Is this another Iranian revolution?
Early days to tell, but Gary Sick draws the parallels with 1979 as well what may be coming Tiannamen 1989 moment for the Iranian regime. I must say I am puzzled why this issue cannot be defused internally by the regime, through a negotiation with Moussavi to get him to draw down the protests -- although if he is going along with them, rather than leading them, as it appears then perhaps the situation is past Moussavi now.
