Thanks for the updates on the troubles in Iran.

However, it's difficult to see whether this unrest is analogous to the 1989 democracy movements in Eastern Europe or is it to the beaten down movement in Tiananmen Square.

...There is a woman who is being beaten. She’s horrified and hysterical but not as much as the anti-riot police officer facing her. She shrieks, ‘Where can I go? You tell me go down the street and you beat me. Then you come up from the other side and beat me again. Where can I go?’

In sheer desperation, the officer hits his helmet several times hard with his baton. ‘Damn me! Damn me! What the hell do I know!’ link

Solomon2, Thank you so much!! Great Blog.

Howard Baskerville, on a different note -- what if anything do you make of the fact that it was Mohsen Rezaie who forced the Guardian Council to recount what and where he wanted recounted and then force them to admit massive fraud.
