Hitchens on Iranians

Christopher Hitchens writes again:
    "Estimates differ, but it seems quite plausible that Iran will be able to make some such announcement before the end of this year. That would mean that all international agreements, all negotiations with bodies like the European Union, all "inspections" by the International Atomic Energy Agency had been, in effect, farcical and void. It would mean being laughed at by the mullahs in the here and now. And it would involve, for the rest of the future, having to treat them with exaggerated politeness. What a wonderful world that would be."

I've always appreciated his writings. I sense he also has a special appreciation for the democratic desires of the Iranian people. His written account of his trip to Iran testifies as to this.
