Today in Iran, a massacre occurred that is being called Iran's Tienanmen Square. The information is still vague, but reports are coming out of the country about police hacking through protesters with axes, pushing people off of bridges, and bludgeoning protesters with clubs. Just to make this exceedingly clear; THIS IS NOT OKAY. And, no, there is nothing the US can do about it.

I need to do this post. You do not need to read it, but I need to post it.

I decided a few days ago to do a primer into what was going on in Iran for people who were confused. Then, I didn't. I don't know why; I was busy and focused on something else. I thought it would be resolved quickly.

Well, all of those excuses are gone now. Well, not gone, but worthless. People are dying and being tortured. I can not, will not sit idly by and be complicit in my silence. This is not quite what I had meant to post, but for now it will do.

Terminology, because the mistakes are starting to drive me up a wall )
