Rigged Election in Iran

*There are links in this post*

Top U.S. officials are now saying that the election was obviously rigged. How else could the third party candidate only receive 1% of the vote? How could Mousavi lose by so wide a margin when last week the nation was in almost full support of him? The Ayatollah is requesting a recount be done, with little enthusiasm.

There are riots all over Tehran and other cities in Iran, with at least 50 dead. I'm sure there are hundreds, if not thousands, already injured in attacks from the riot police and as bystanders. Please watch some videos on what's going on - hotair has good links - and keep them in your thoughts and, if possible, on your blogs and public accounts. Why should they be beaten senseless for merely trying to elect whom they want to elect?

I don't know much about the situation, but it's bloody and brutal and the corrupt government under Ahmadinejad's rule is behind it. Oh, and he has said publicly that he "can't guarantee the safety of Mousavi." That alone should be enough to arouse suspicion that he's up to no good.

I think ACORN might have registered some of those voters in Iran - just kidding.
