IMHO, it's gone beyond Mousavi and Rafsanjani now...and I think Rafsanjani knows it and is keeping his options open.

Those people want to be free and they have shed their blood in the effort...and they keep coming back. It's not over by a long shot.

That's because George Bush's legacy endures in the Mid East, despite, and in spite of Obama, and THAT is Obama's real dilema.

It was George Bush's policy of direct engagement and support of liberty that has led to the people of Iran seeing the measure of freedom now established on both sides of them in Iraq and Afghjanistan...and desiring it for themselves.

Obama cannot possibly go too far in recognizing that, or he absolutely repudiates himself and his entire foreign policy.

So the fight in Iran goes on, even weeks after the major events.

Eyewitness Account to Slaughter in Iran 6/24/2009

While brave Iranians are slaughtered in the street by their own government as they seek liberty, Obama disinvited Iranian officials to American 4th of July celebration.

Meanwhile, they are axing students to death.

You can follow me on twitter if you want.

"There is only one force of history that can break the reign of hatred and resentment, and expose the pretensions of tyrants, and reward the hopes of the decent and tolerant, and that is the force of human freedom.

"All who live in tyranny and hopelessness can know: The United States will not ignore your oppression, or excuse your oppressors. When you stand for your liberty, we will stand with you.

"Democratic reformers facing repression, prison or exile can know: America sees you for who you are -- the future leaders of your free country.

"The rulers of outlaw regimes can know that we still believe as Abraham Lincoln did: "Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves; and, under the rule of a just God, cannot long retain it."

George W. Bush Jan 2005

Former President Rafsanjani:
I knew the Ayatollah Khomeni. The Ayatollah Khomeni was a friend of mine, and you, (Ahmadenijad, Khameni) are no Ayatollah Khomeni. ;o)

He just gave Khamenei a thumbs up (Iranian version of the middle finger).

Cracks are forming in the regime. How long till it collapses is the question....
