Mousavi Arrested After Losing Iranian Election to Ahmadinejad

Sorry for the absence, folks. It's been a long, long past couple weeks. Updates will resume normal frequency.

So Mousavi, Ahmadinejad's hard-line opponent in Iran's elections, seemed like a very probable next Iranian president, until today. Right after the elections closed, with Ahmadinejad being declared the winner (can someone say, "Rigged"?), Mousavi was arrested. The incident has sparked humongous rioting in Tehran. Had Mousavi been elected, it would not have drastically changed key Iranian policies, such as their nuclear program, but as Mousavi isa reformist, it would have been far better than another term of our Arabian Hitler.

Know what would be ironic? If this outrageous scandal ignited the Iranian reformist movement the country has needed for so long.
