Is Mir Hossein Mousavi a pro-Western savior? Maybe not. But among other reforms he wants to free the Iranian media from government control. He supports Iran's nuclear program, as do the majority of nationalist Iranians regardless of their religious zeal. But unlike Ahmadinejad he probably sees it as a deterrent and a key to regional hegemony, rather than the means to provoke an apocalyptic nuclear exchange with Israel and the West.
Regardless, it's heartening to see the Iranian people take to the streets and oppose a regime that aspires to genocide. Remember, unlike the self-righteous leftist agitators who regularly took to the streets against President Bush, these people are actually risking their lives and the lives of their families.
