The revolutionary gene is still there, but itís urging a different kind of revolution:

The eldest grandson of the late Iranian revolutionary leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini has called on Iranians to launch an attack on the current regime.

The London-based Arabic language newspaper "Al-Sharq al-Awsat" quoted 46-year-old Hussein Khomeini as saying: "Iran needs a new democratic regime that does not use religion to suppress the people."

This marks the most dramatic shift in a political family since the son of enviromonk Al "destroy the internal combustion engine" Gore got shitfaced in a Mustang.

The pro-democracy movement in Iran is really interesting.

If it succeeds, this country could be the first Islamic theocracy to become democratic through the efforts of its own people.
