The Internet treats censorship as an outage and routes around it. You can't stop the signal.
Sounds like the police are starting to shoot protestors, so a Revolution it'll be. Just a question on who will win.
Makes me want to grab the nearest hippie/hipster by the neck, shake them silly and say "This! This is what a real revolution looks like!"
I'm sure that in this mess, Obama will find someone he can apologize to.
Let's just hope it isn't a preview of coming attractions....
I wonder - just how large a proportion of Iranian society are those Inet connected kids?Is it possible that the pollsters did a Dewey? Counted the folks who were easy to count, and severely undercounted the millions who don't have phones? Aren't connected to the internet, and don't give a damn for modernization?I'd be very hesitant to assume much about what's going on in Tehran. The West has been misreading Iran for most of 50 years, now. And for the same reasons - we keep talking to the people who are able to talk to us.
I'd also be curious about what is going on outside the big cities. I remember a few strange incidents with Revolutionary Guard and Basiji convoys and supply depots blowing up in the past few years. (failure to store munitions properly, no doubt, *ahem*). However, keep in mind that 1) even the moderate candidates are hand-picked by the mullas and 2) Ohmydinnerjacket believes that he is talking to the 12th Imam. The 12th Imam is supposed to return during a time of chaos and war. LittleRed1 WV: coatic - um, a coatimundi with Turett's Syndrome? [flees for cover]
