iran, elections, protests
What are they doing in Iran? To their own citizens? Why?
An Iranian gives her eye-witness report on today's atrocities carried out against non-violent protesters on the streets of Tehran. Further accounts online paint a similar grim picture. From persiankiwi's excellent twitter page:

Nico Pitney relays from Facebook:
"In Baharestan we saw militia with axe choping ppl like meat - blood everywhere - like butcher . . . Fighting in Vanak Sq, Tajrish sq, Azadi Sq - now . ."
The next time some asshatting teabagger talks about "taking America back", smack them. Hard.
