How To Explain Iran

August 28, 2009 at 10:31 am (bloggocks, Iran, Max Dunbar)

The situation in Iran remains unstable and conflicted. The recent election and the unrest that followed it has been a source of division amongst Western intellectuals. Some commentators instinctively side with the protestors on the street, while others are concerned about the sovereignty of a foreign government to which the West is hostile. It’s all very complicated, which is why I welcome the input of our Shiraz Socialist commenter, Comrade Resistor, who has contributed a sophisticated pictorial analysis of the situation in Iran.

    Wow, Max ‘dumber and dumber’ Dunbar posts again on Iran.

    Dunbar who thought that Ahmedinejad was an Arab!

    That’s what I call a middle-east expert.

    It wasn’t my comment, as you know.

    Do you want to explain why you keep deleting my posts?

  6. maxdunbar said,

    Okay. Have seen your point in the Kennedy thread now.

    I haven’t deleted any comments, though
