From Human Events Online comes this article, complete with excerpts from a recent interview with Reza Pahlavi, son of the late Shah of Iran. (Hat Tip to Drudge) This is a must read article.
You can certainly bet that this will not set well with the mullahs and what has become the daily threat factory, also known as the Iranian government. In fact, he can probably expect a fatwa sometime soon. But in addition to the Iranian government, the UN and their biggest fans (the American and European left) will be unhappy, as will the Russians and the Chinese.
The truth is, this would be the best-case scenario for Iran and for the entire world. That is, as long as son of shah remembers the mistakes of his father and installs a constitutional monarchy, with power given to a democratically elected legislature. If he does not do so, the Iranian people will be trading one form of tyrranny for another, just like they did when the islamists overthrew dad and many other similar instances throughout history.
Long-term stability and prosperity is highly dependent upon the existence of such democratic institutions. That is an immutable truth.
