Iran: Countdown to February 10th
A quick march through the latest information from my source: the latest word is that the Iranian government has rounded up at least 2,000 people over the past three weeks, with no word of any sort as to their fates. As mentioned last week, the operating theory is that the government is trying to terrify the people into staying home on the day of the next nationwide protest (that's February 10th, as a reminder), which seems to be a vain exercise. "More and more, the Green movement takes root in spite of the extreme suffering, captivity, spilled blood and pain. Iran is awakening."
