Tipping Point in Tehran
The Washington Post / Robin Wright
14-Jul-2009 (one comment)

Given its advancing nuclear technology and regional influence, Iran believed before the election that it held the trump cards in any negotiations. Now, politically disgraced, it is the needy one. Yet Washington might also pay a price for engaging with a government that brutalizes its people. Any involvement could effectively bestow legitimacy on a disputed election and reject the transparency and justice that protesters are seeking. The uprising has transformed Iran's political landscape.
