    Remember all of the conspiracy theories that flourished her about UN troops being brought into the USA ? Also all of the other BS stories of foreign troops being brought in to control Americans: Chnese, unemployed former Soviet border guards, East German border guards, brigades of Bulgarian bagpipers, on and on !!
    I'm not so keen on most of those, but Bulgarian bagpipers might be interesting on a small scale.

    Edit: Very small.

    Re: Riots erupt in Tehran over 'stolen' election

    There are now reports from Iran that Ali Hashemi Rafsanjani is going to convene an emergency meeting of the Assembly of Experts. He is counting to see if he has enough votes to depose Supreme Leader Khamenei himself.

    Re: Riots erupt in Tehran over 'stolen' election

    Here's some Twitter contacts, in Tehran and others outside of Tehran. It seems the violence and protests were pretty widespread and increasingly violent.

    Someone at Huffington Post is liveblogging and has a nice collection of videos that are beginning to trickle out of Iran.

    Hamas? I highly doubt it but I wouldn't be surprised if they brought in Hezbollah fresh off their defeat in the real democracy of Lebanon.

    The Assembly of Experts are a joke, the Assembly of Experts who choose the Supreme Leader are chosen amongst a pre-screened list vetted by the Guardian Council, the Supreme Leader will not be deposed save through force.

    If Rafsanjani decides to directly confront Khamenei, there's a good chance that the Assembly of Experts would line up behind him. According to Wikipedia, at least 65 of the 86-member Assembly are politically close to Rafsanjani. But it's hard to tell if they're close enough to Rafsanjani to take the radical step of deposing the Supreme Leader.

    Ahmadinejad refused to guarantee Mousavi's safety today. It seems that the establishment is becoming increasingly rattled by the Mousavi-Rafsanjani-Khatami trio. As of now, I'm still predicting they will restore order...but not without major concessions to reformers in terms of policy.

    Meh the Assembly of Experts are part of the problem with the electoral system of Iran, not the solution. They are the Mullahs.
