So, if you've been awake at any point during the past week or so, you're probably already aware that there's some serious shit going down in Iran.

I'll be posting links to relevant pages as I find them. Please feel free to comment with links, videos, and images of your own.

A question that I have heard several times is this simple one: Do the Americans know what is happening here? They don’t complaint, but they want to know if the silence is politics or indifference or... One said, I hope the diplomats in Europe don’t sell us cheap.

One comment made by a couple of them, and this is directed at people inside and outside Iran, is tough to take: ‘it seems that we are all alone.’
