An Animated Guide To the Iranian Power Struggle


The power struggle between Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a matter of great concern to me, as it should be to anyone who has not completed the Defense Against the Dark Arts course at Hogwart’s, because the mullahs claim sorcery is involved.  (It’s a tough course to complete, because they keep changing instructors.)

The geo-political strategists at Next Media Animation of Taiwan emailed to let me know they have prepared an animated summary of the Iranian crisis.  I think it covers the situation nicely.  The deteriorating political situation in Iran is something to be taken seriously… except for the next minute and twenty-four seconds.
