    I hope someone shoots him..................................in the face.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    According to Mousavi's Facebook page, he and Karroubi (the other reformist candidate) are urging Iranians to boycott the Friday morning prayers at Tehran University tomorrow, at which Khamenei will be speaking.

    Yes, that's huge news, but I think they're doing it more so that nothing important happens. If opposition members attended and shouted down Khamenei, that would be huge, so I think this is more of a self-preservation decision than anything. At any rate, Saturday is going to be huge, and I have a feeling if something big doesn't happen during Friday prayers then something is going to happen on Saturday to discredit the "reformists" in the eyes of the demonstrators.

    We'll see, though.

    Seriously? A affair?

    BBC and Channel 4 are covering this extensively. BBC has some journalists breaking the law and going undercover in Iran joining the marches

    Iran accuses the US of meddling in election crisis.
    TEHRAN, Iran Iran directly accused the United States of meddling in the deepening crisis over a disputed presidential election and broadened its media clampdown Wednesday to include blogs and news Web sites. But protesters took to the streets in growing defiance of the country's Islamic rulers.

    ...snip....

    Officials also stepped up claims that foreign hands have been behind the unrest.

    An Iranian statement blamed Washington for "intolerable" interference in the showdown over allegations of vote-rigging and fraud. The report, on state-run Press TV, cited no evidence.
    Iran accuses U.S. of meddling after disputed vote.
    TEHRAN, Iran (AP) Iran accused the United States on Wednesday of "intolerable" meddling in its internal affairs, alleging for the first time that Washington has fueled a bitter postelection dispute. Opposition supporters marched in Tehran's streets for a third straight day to protest the outcome of the balloting.

    The Iranian government summoned the Swiss ambassador, who represents U.S. interests in Iran, to complain about American interference, state-run Press TV reported.

    The English-language channel quoted the government as calling Western interference "intolerable."
    No worries, we're still western devils.
    *insert profound statement here*
