Khomeini's Ghost - The Iranian Revolution and the Rise of Militant Islam Makes sense of everything including Ayatollah Sistani
You know I have said many times that having legitimacy is not Ayatollah Khamenei's concern! Ayatollah Khomeini betrayed the 1979 revolution right off the bat and Khamenei is following him. That is why the most popular Ayatollah in Iran Ayatollah Sistani who has lived in Iraq since he was a teenager but visited Iran every year left Iran for Iraq and has never returned.
Ayatollah Sistani is gaining more converts every day. Ayatollah Montazeri was a leader of the Revolution too and has disagreed with Khamenei's betrayal of the Revolution. Instead of leaving like Ayatollah Sistani he chose to stay in Iran and has frequently butted heads with Khamenei. Ayatollah Sistani the most powerful Ayatollah in Iran has stayed out of Iran since the 1979 Revolution. He said the Revolution was betrayed and it was. Ayatollah Sistani Intrigue
Reading the book by Con Coughlin titled Khomeini's Ghost - The Iranian Revolution and the Rise of Militant Islam while as usual not totally correct it certainly makes you think and put everything in its proper frightening perspective. Please look at the book review and decide for yourself. From Khomeini's response on his return to Iran after 15 years of exile to today's events it all makes sense and the world better be concerned as there is more than idle threats and braggadocio coming from Ahmadinejad.

When asked by a journalist how he felt upon returning to Iran after 15 years in exile. Khomeini’s curt, one-word reply “nothing” Whoa! From day one of his return to Iran Khomeini expressed no love for Iran only a love of the atom bomb. The drive even then was to possess a nuclear weapon though that desire is still denied until Iran can get their hands on one.
I have tried to give Iran the benefit of the doubt when they say their nuclear desires are peaceful knowing they could use nuclear power as an energy source for their growing population. I have always asserted that perceived need could be cover for the real goal of developing a nuclear weapon. I now believe it is!
I do not trust Iran an Iota any more! They are playing war games taunting Israel. Check out the link, despite supposed recent cooperation I am more concerned than ever about what Iran is really up to and not just with their nuclear ambitions.

IRG Ahmadinejad, the stolen election, the killing and imprisonment of the children of the Revolution, the violent crushing of all oppositio0n, the clandestine nuclear program, It is all making sense, beware! Natanz, Qom, Isfahan, Bushehr, Natanz, how many more nuclear facilities? How will this end?
