A few people in Iran are a little upset over the election

UPDATE: Um, wow.  Not that I would EVER suggest helping to DDOS the Iranian government's propaganda websites, because of course that would be immoral, right?

From IranElection09's twitterfeed, where you can find the latest updates on the Iranian election protests. Rodrigomx of BNONews is assembling a collection of photos from various sources. Excitable Andi has a post up saying that professors at the University of Tehran have resigned en masse to protest the militia raid of the boys' dorm. (Link is safe per douchebag policy, it's pictures of the dorm raid.)

Imagine how different this might all be if Saddam Hussein were in a position to send over troops to help support Ahmadinejad.

Even if Ahmadinejad succeeds in pulling off this farce of an election, he's been put on notice, and the rest of the world is now on notice to help insure that Iran has a truly fair election next time around. It's a shame we don't have a president in office right now who sees Ahmadinejad for the dictator that he is, and who is interested in truly helping democracy achieve a foothold in Iran, or we might be seeing a different election outcome.

Update: Rottengods has heard a rumor that eight people have been killed in the latest protests, but does not have confirmation.
Update, this one below the fold due to graphic content. Also via @IranElection09.
