As I have mentioned before today. In a certain aspect, this is a non-story. When the ‘students’ stormed the American embassy and took them hostage, it was a massive story because it was an ending of civilization and a return to barbarism and rule by thuggery. An abandonment of the entire international system and isolationist policies and cult/fetish mentalities as what holds the country together. What we saw in Tehran today was just more of the same. A continuation of barbarism is not news or at least not big news. Adler does make this point in a way.
