If I could control things that's what I would do, seems to work for the Israelis and the Palestinians... You can always boil a group of people down to two opposing factions. It's the amazing dynamic that makes life and death possible. We have red states and blue states in America, but for the most part it's a matter of who has a sense of humor and who doesn't. In Iran that might not be the case, but an overall lack of fun sh*t to do is certainly not helping them. Even if the election had been fair and Mousavi had won, would that have changed much? It'd still be hot as hell with limited Buffalo Wild Wings franchise locations.
If they could just pair off into groups that each person would enjoy being in and leave the other alone that would be fine. But it won't last long until one group who isn't having fun wants to take it out on the other and a full scale conflict arises. All these power struggles in the world are no different than the ones you have on an everyday basis with the old lady at the bus stop who keeps thinking she can board ahead of you. One day you will grab her from behind and throw her spine on your knee, but until then your rage simmers. The day is coming though, and when it does, God have mercy on us all.
