Idle Thought

Both Ahmadinejad and Moussavi are declaring victory in Iran as the early results come in.

If Ahmadinejad does win, and it's widely assumed that he only won because of electoral fraud... mightn't that hasten another revolution?

I don't wish death and destruction on anybody, but if any country in the Middle East deserves a true, functioning democracy it's Iran, and they might not get it by trying to slowly evolve the current system. A tainted Moussavi defeat might be the thing that drives that point home.
