Iran,  The Left

Silence on Iran from the “revolutionary socialists”

At Socialist Unity, Andy Newman writes in a recent post (in which he kindly links to one of my posts):

Well it is a quiet time of year.

Oh, I don’t know about that.


Not a word yet on the latest events in Iran from Socialist Unity, Lenin’s Tomb or even the snazzy new Socialist Workers Party website.

You say you want a revolution, comrades? There it is, in the streets of Tehran and other cities throughout the country. This is, as regime apologist George Galloway might put it (in another context) “The real deal.”

Where are you?

Richard Seymour at Lenin’s Tomb finally has a post on Iran. I wonder if we’ll be hearing from LT contributor and Islamic Republic defender Yoshie Furuhashi, who’s kinda sweet on Ahmadinejad.
