The turmoil in Tehran

The turmoil in Tehran could likely escalate.
Blood may continue to ooze on the streets.
The Ayatollah may crush the street protests, but such would only be a pyrrhic victory, as it would come at the heels of international condemnation, and the further isolation of Iran not only from the west, but from its neighbors in the middle east.
The bludgeoning of demonstrators by the Iranian government reveals not the gathering strength, but gradual weakening of its grip on power.
