There's something important happening in Iran. The country is seeing its biggest demonstrations since the overthrow of the Shah in 1979. It is exciting if not a little disturbing to follow it in real time on Twitter. People are posting things as they happen. More photos from the NY Times slide show are here. A very good NPR piece explains it clearly here.

Tehran becomes Tiananmen RT @HuffPolitics Stunning #iranelection video: cops on motorcycles charge into packed crowd
I kicked myself for using the word Tiananmen, but more and more, I see that word popping up. Let's pray that this can be resolved by peaceful means, but I fear that it can't.
