Check this out, just copied from an Iranian community e-mail group. These folks sure look like the real-life manifestaion of the C.L.I., the Committee to Liberate Iran, noted in George Clooney's spot-on movie, Syriana.
I just would like someone in the audience there to stand up and pointedly question Senators Lieberman & Santorium about the likelihood of 10,000s and maybe 100,000s of Iranian casualties sure to result when the US and/or Israel attacks Persia. It will happen.
"Just how many deaths is it going to take, sirs, to tip the balance past the point Amerikans can no longer stomach the outright slaughter of innocents in their names?
"How many more dead on both sides, senators, are you prepared to accept!?"
Lieberman deserves to be forever shamed out of his Senate seat. And Santorum? He's been an embarrassment from the moment he stepped foot in Washington.
Dark clouds are forming with no end in sight.
These are dangerous and awful times.

Rights, an organization representing the voices of Iran's strongest reform
movement: the youth.
Ms. Fatemeh Haghighatjoo, a former Iranian parliamentarian who resigned in
protest over her government's crackdown on reformers, will detail the
problems reformers face within the government. A longtime defender of
freedom of the press and women's rights, she was sentenced to a term of 20
months in prison for "inciting public opinion and insulting the
The panelists will share personal experiences of the horrors that take
place in their native country and share their views on what Iranians, U.S.
policymakers and the world can do to support those fighting for democracy

freedoms of its citizens by rounding-up, imprisoning and torturing those
who work for democracy. The briefing will detail important developments

democracy in Iran.
