Starfish revolution?

Michael Ledeen suggests suggests the protest movement in Iran is following the model of the starfish from the book The Starfish and the Spider.

If you decapitate a spider it dies but if you lop off an arm of a starfish, it regenerates. In like manner, despite a massive crackdown from the Iranian regime–thousands of arrests (now termed “kidnappings” by Iranian Tweeters), scores of executions, mass rape and other forms of torture, show trials and stern intimidation from political and military leaders, judges and clerics, the Green Path moves on, with its next publicly announced challenge to the regime set for December 7th. Meanwhile, demonstrations and strikes continue across the country.

Hat tip: Alan Moore and Smartmobs.
