One thought on “Panhandle Slim… Art for Folk…

  1. After every revolution there is a blood-letting.
    The aftermath of the French Revolution (1789) and the Russian Revolution (1917) were particularly bloody.

    Hardliner Ebraham Raisi was elected as Iran’s new new president last Saturday.
    We can thank the narcissistic psychopaths Trump and Netanyahu for Raisi’s victory.

    Following the Iranian Revolution (1979) Raisi, as the head of the judiciary, issued lots of legal death warrants.
    Were all of them justified? Were there excesses? Iranian and other historians will have to sort that out.

    Raisi is Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s protege and is presumed to be his successor.
    Khamenei is in poor health.

    The Iranian public is uneasy about Raisi.
    Only 48% of Iranian’s even bothered to vote in Saturday’s election.
    That’s the lowest participation rate in 40 years.

    How Raisi will impact US and world affairs is yet to be determined.
    But, if the US and Iran can reach an agreement which would allow the US back into the 6-party nuclear talks it would be a good sign for all concerned.
