    Default Iran...

    ... surprised there isn't already a thread...
    but then again I'd probably be the most likely to create it and hadn't...

    too tired/on vacation to make an update at the moment but if anyone has any questions/comments feel free to ask and I'll do my best to update anyone who's curious about whats going on and the history behind it...

    i wonder how my cousin is doing :-/ (he lives in Tehran - haven't gotten a hold of him lately)

    From what I've read (and this is very little) the atmosphere of the youth was rather subdued just over a month ago. Its only recently that they seem to have realized that they don't actually like the Ayatollah's regime.

    What do you know of this?

    It always seems interesting to me that Iran's other revolution was a student one, so will this one be too? Although I think calling the Islamic revolution a 'student revolution' is a bit of an exaggeration (but then again, so is calling it an Islamic revolution, since the Ayatollah made a whole case out of being this crazy democracy loving dude beforehand).i

    I always enjoy reading about people who revolt against their government because their government is revolting. Makes me want to watch V for Vendetta (again).

    Rachel Maddow is on CNBC right now discussing that Obama coming out in support of Moussavi would backfire hugely and only serve to prop up Ahmadinejad. Wise words. I saw something on Twitter saying Marjane Satrapi had documentation from the election council in Iran noting that Ahmadinejad only got 8% of the vote or something, and that this is more like a coup d'etat than election fraud.
