Persian Spring

Riddle me this – Why do Liberals in the West insist on call the riots, insurrections, and rebellions still raging across much of the Muslim World the “Arab Spring” when all the key participants seem allied with Iran?

Shouldn’t we call it the “Persian Spring?”

    Well, spring sounds hopeful and they hope this is finally a transition to democracy. That would make them more secular and tolerant and less in conflict with us.

    In reality it’s most likely a transition to islamism (Islamic Spring sounds like a contradiction in terms) and an escalation of the conflict with the West. I guess this conflict will have to get a lot worse before people wake up.

    You’re probably at least close to right. I find it significant though that so many of these “protests” are by groups who favor Iran and Iran’s agenda.

    Since Iran prefers to work through proxies, I’d not be surprised if they were fomenting these rebellions.
