Take a few moments to skim through Andrew Sullivan's excellent round up of Friday's fraudulent Iranian presidential election and its aftermath. Polls leading up to the election suggested that the reformist candidate Mir Hussein Mousavi led Ahmedinejad comfortably. The final "tally" instead showed an Ahmedinejad landslide. The central government then shut down YouTube, cell phones and text messaging, kicked out foreign journalists, and put all the opposition candidates under house arrest. To their credit, the Iranian people have risen up, are demanding an end to the thuggery and deception of the current theocratic regime. Are they on the verge of revolution? Will the voice of the people be crushed?
It seems to me that this is a major news story. But you'd never know it by watching the MSM news or reading most American newspapers. (My local rag, the Plain Dealer, mentions the Iranian election on page A17 of the Sunday paper via an AP wire snippet.)
