I was deeply moved, years ago, by the local demonstrations calling for the overthrow of the Shah. How did THAT work out?

I have been following the events with great interest and am also moved by the people and their fight to have their votes counted, and their protest against the brutal regime. Like you, I have been wearing green. It is fascinating to see the part social networking is playing in this uprising.
