I Wish I'd Said That: Sadjadpour on Iran/Syria

President Ahmadinejad's public urging of the Asad government not to use force against protestors is curious, given how dependent Iran is on the Syrian alliance. But no comment I can make would be as good as the one Karim Sadjadpour of Carnegie has in the NYT:
"Iran calling for Syria to dialogue rather than use force against its population is akin to Silvio Berlusconi telling Charlie Sheen not to womanize,” said Karim Sadjadpour of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, who is a sharp critic of the Iranian leadership.
