Sorry if this has been posted before, but it’s worth repeating if so. For those of you who use Twitter, do a search on the hashtag, #IranElection

It’s fascinating and the information is flowing so fast that it’s hard to keep up with.

One killed?

That’s what the Chinese have always said about Tianamen Square.

Do you think Eugene Hassenfuss and a C-130 full of Ak’s would even the odds a bit. That would be a new take on Iran Contra.

This time just Iran.

‘at least 1’ should be in the title.

Has the foreign media been expelled yet?

A different perspective on the above might be, that's the best they could do is get 1 out of a street full of people. I'm getting the impression that they don't shoot any better than the Iraqi's.
