Ayatollah Bill Montazeri kicked the bucket in Iran this week. He was 87. Having first helped legendary Islamist psycho Ayatollah Khomeini seize power thirty years ago, he is said to have become disillusioned at the sheer level of mayhem that went with Khomeini's rule. Still, he never quite could bring himself to admit that he and Khomeini had done anything wrong by plunging Iran into its present nightmares. Montazeri eventually found himself marginalised for refusing to endorse the ongoing execution of dissenters under the Islamist dictatorship he had helped invent and impose. I suppose anyone who has faced a similar moral dilemma, and has behaved better, may judge him. The CNN brigade think he was the nearest thing the enslaved Iranian nation had to a focus for its desire to rejoin the civilised world. Maybe. To me it just looks like the Iranian people are being stampeded between varying sets of Islamist psychos. Roll up, roll up. Choose your Ayatollah folks. Not much of a choice. The wheel is rigged and it's the only game in town. Short of divine interevention there will be war in and from Iran shortly. I just hope American President Michael Moore knows who he's appeasing. And I hope some of us survive this Islamic apocalypse.
