Iranian Protests

Wow, I usually don't delve into politics very much, but the protests in Iran are crazy. Check out this footage the BBC got from a cellphone. Apparently the protest was five miles long. That's some insane shit.

Presidential challenger Mir Hossein Moussavi has officially launched a complaint of vote fraud, but with the Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei supporting former and seemingly newly "elected" leader, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, it doesn't look too promising for any sort of overturning.

It sucks lots that the elections were ostensibly "democratic", but when something smells fishy and a complaint is filed, the actual (unelected) leader pipes up and puts the kibosh on any shimmering of votes meaning anything.
