Double standards about Iran

Tomorrow's presidential elections in Iran will prompt a predictable chorus of criticism from many officials and lobby groups throughout the United States. The elections, they will point out, are a sham intended to give a cloak of respectability to what we all know is just a tyranny. What the Iranian people need, their argument will continue, is a change of regime, sponsored by the United States, that will bring them democracy and open a new chapter on human rights. But to argue that the United States should try to destabilize the present order in Iran and help introduce new democratic rule reveals a curious irony that reveals much about contemporary values... [editor's note: Interesting article ... but I was kind of hoping it would reveal a different kind of "sham" -- how come proponents of "democracy" in Iran never note that it's easier for an opposition candidate to get on the ballot in Iran than in, say, Oklahoma? - TLK]
