What "global' financial crisis? There is and never was a 'global' economic crisis. The world is increasingly wealthy and multipolar, and this is the Real Spring that is being ignored by the imperially dominated media, and deliberately so.

An unholy coalition of perceived "interests': USA, Saudi Arabia & Al Qaeda "- As far as the Salafi Jihadists are concerned, the longer-term interests of Iran, Israel, Syria and USA are currently aligned. It is surprising that there is no apparent cooperation in this area.

An Emerging Rupture in Iran With the predominantly foreign fantasy regarding a "Green' Iranian revolution basically over, it is easier to focus attention on divisions within Iran's dominant political factions. A rupture appears to be manifesting itself more and more between the followers of President Ahmadinejad and Supreme Leader Khamenei.
