Obama Finally Supports the Resisters: We stand behind those who are seeking justice in a peaceful way;"
Zero Hour at 4 PM Teheran Time Tomorrow

Although, once again, I quibble at the "peaceful" caveat. Peaceful redress of grievances is only required in a democracy or republic. In a tyranny, there is no real way to "peacefully" force a despot to work your will.

Still, it's something. And only a week (!!!) after everyone else on the right and on the left, in America and in Europe, was saying it.

I suppose now Charles Krauthammer may agitate against the "Supreme Leader," as Barack Hussein Obama calls him, without being branded a crypto-Zionist cabalist by Andrew Sullivan. See -- it's a question of timing. Once Barack Obama says it's okay to support the protesters, well, then, sure. Have a picnic.

Or else Andrew Sullivan and Barack Obama's dwindling supporters -- yes, they are dwindling -- will have to begin labeling the rest of us neocons "premature anti-theocrats."

Domestic political considerations aside, tomorrow may be bloody. Glorious or tragic -- it's going to be bloody. Unless the resisters simply capitulate, in which case it won't be bloody but it will still be tragic.

From Allah's post:

As noted earlier, it looks like tomorrow at 4 p.m. is zero hour in Iran. If Mousavi and the reformists go through with the rally, the regime basically has to crack down or itll look cowed in the face of the popular uprising. The Basij are already sharpening their axes. Literally.

He wrote "literally" and he did indeed mean literally.

Question: Is this a crisis? I guess not.

Because if it were a crisis, Rahm Emanuel would be using it, right?

"Never let a good crisis go to waste," he said.

Thanks to AHFF Geoff for the Gallup poll tip.
