Iran Continues Descent Into Darkness

From the AP:
Iran's hard-line government said Wednesday it was removing 40 ambassadors and senior diplomats, including supporters of warmer ties with the West, from their posts in a shake-up that comes as the Islamic republic takes a more confrontational international stance.

All in all very disturbing. Of course, Iran could just be trying to accumulate a stack of chips to be used at the nuclear negotiating table, or the regime is just doing what religious fanatics do best.
