this is off topic, but i don't have your email. anyway, there's an article in the Nov. 21 issue of the New Yorker about various young political and cultural groups in Iran and their support/opposition/response to the recent presidential election over there. i think you'd probably find the article informative and relevant to many of your blog posts on the middle east.In related news, there appears to be a plot afoot in Egypt to transition the role of the President from Demi-God to mere elected official. But the good news seems to be that the Islamic Brotherhood is the more publically acknowledged 'opposition group' in the western media. So do we really want to support 'reform' in the middle east?

Or would that bbreak into the fun of 'supporting the president to support the troops"?
