I’m sure many of you have been following what’s been happening in Iran, right? Or maybe you haven’t because, like often happens in international events, the American media has dropped the ball in the most epic of fashions. And I’m talking Ed Scissum (God bless him) fumbling deep in Bama territory to give Auburn the win in the ‘97 Iron Bowl dropping the ball. It’s been that bad.
Against this backdrop, I’ve turned to the BBC World Service (which comes on XM, but they’ve only been doing marginally better than the US media), and, most notably, Twitter. It’s been interesting to read about events unfolding around the world for the last three days straight from the people involved.
The whole time, a quote from Babylon 5 keeps coming to mind:
For better or for worse, the whole world is watching now. The next few days are going to be very interesting in world politics.
