Om Iran och revolutioner….

There’s a quotation from [Albert] Camus where he says: ‘All modern revolutions have ended in a reinforcement of the state,'” Axworthy says.

”I think the regime in Iran is quite strong. It’s quite practiced in repression and it’s used to dealing with opposition and securing its position through repression. It’s very difficult to say which proportion of the population is on which side but there’s a significant minority at least who do actually support the regime and who do support Ahmadinejad. So it’s not simply a question of the people against the government, which it has been in many of the places where we’ve seen governments fall over the last few weeks.”
