Phone report from Tehran
Daniel Nasaw from The Guardian, interviewed a woman by phone about today's rally outside parliament. It's bad:
"I was going towards Baharestan with my friend. This was everyone, not just supporters of one candidate or another. All of my friends, they were going to Baharestan to express our opposition to these killings and demanding freedom. The black-clad police stopped everyone. They emptied the buses that were taking people there and let the private cars go on. We went on until Ferdowsi then all of a sudden some 500 people with clubs came out of [undecipherable] mosque and they started beating everyone. They tried to beat everyone on [undecipherable] bridge and throwing them off of the bridge. And everyone also on the sidewalks. They beat a woman so savagely that she was drenched in blood and her husband, he fainted. They were beating people like hell. It was a massacre. They were trying to beat people so they would die. they were cursing and saying very bad words to everyone. This was exactly a massacre… I don’t know how to describe it."
Lara Setrakian of ABC News in Dubai reports via Twitter that her sources in Tehran tell her
I know the United States can't be directly involved, as badly as we'd like to help. We cannot officially call for people to take to the streets to be beaten and killed when we have absolutely no capability of assisting them.
Stephen Colbert said it best when he described tough-talking Republican demands for President Obama to speak out more forcefully as the equivalent of standing on the beach while someone drowns, and screaming, "HEY! I'M A LIFEGUARD!"
