    well, actually, THEY would say "look, he was democratically elected", but that's just quibbling.

    Perhan's a good guy.

    Whenever some numbnut goes on and on about wanting to nuke Iran, I can't help but think of all the Perhans there.

    Ya gotta love them Mullah guys.
    you beat me to it.....the count was determined ahead of time.

    I'm still amazed the ballot-stuffing was this bad. The mullahs have shown they know how to rig elections....how'd they manage to screw this one this badly?

    It would be nice to hope that this will lead to significant change in Iran, but I'm not that optimistic.

    I'm not sure significant change in Iran is necessarily for the better.

    Rebellions tend to produce more French Revolutions than American Revolutions. I take no comfort at the prospect of a nuclear armed equivalent of The Committee for Public Safety. I would prefer the mullahs, who at least are predictable in their hatreds.

    I'd rather the people be able to choose their own direction. Seeing as the turnout was so high for this election, it would be nice if their votes actually counted for something.

    Re: Riots erupt in Tehran over 'stolen' election

    Perham has contacted me he is okay and sitting tight, he said there is civil unrest in all major cities were the people believe Mousavi got 21 million votes against the bastards 11 million.

    He says the police are everywhere and they are using extreme violence on the protesters.

    This is definitely cause for real concern. Rioting in just Tehran would be quickly and completely squelched. If riots are occurring across Iran, that is a far larger challenge to the mullahs and Ahamenijad than their public statements suggest.

    This either dies down quickly or boils over into full-on rebellion.

    Can any news sources confirm Perham's report? I haven't seen any yet.

    Edit to add: Glad Perham's ok. Tell him to keep his head down and avoid random flying bullets.
