Iranian Developments What has emboldened

Iranian Developments

What has emboldened the students in Iran to protest with such alacrity at this historical juncture?

Perhaps the key reason: the presence of significant U.S. troop deployments in two of the key nation-states flanking the Islamic Republic, one must conclude, after reading this manifesto.

And was Howell Raines still at the helm when this was penned?

UPDATE: Might the protests be petering out? More on this soon.
