Michael Rubin's boundless optimism

Michael Rubin is getting a little ahead of the curve here, but I hope he's right anyway.
Qaddafi’s exile or death will be the last nail in the coffin of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Egyptians thought, “If Tunisians can do it, why not us.” When Mubarak fled, Libyans concluded that it was their turn. If people power can topple Qaddafi, not even the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps will be able to contain the rage of the Iranian people. And if the Islamic Republic collapses, then suddenly the threats from Hezbollah, Hamas, and Palestinian Islamic Jihad will decline as their state support evaporates.
From your lips to God's ears....

The Iranian Islamist regime is powerful and well entrenched and unlike the Shah, the mullahs are not paralyzed by doubts. They have the will to rule and are willing to kill large numbers of their own people to stay in power.

To overcome that huge power the Iranian state has on its on side, the Iranian people have to lose all fear of the regime and their desire for change has to be stronger than their fear of death.

When that day comes in Iran, the country's theocracy will be like a bad nightmare dissolved into the mists of time.
