Iran: How many really died in demonstrations

You know when the Islamic Republic admits ten “terrorists” died in the demonstrations that the numbers are much greater. It’s unlikely we will ever know how much greater, but the death toll is most likely depressing, as well as the number tortured (in the real sense, not the Abu Ghraib sense).

Meanwhile, Debka file is wondering about the protection of Iranian nuclear assets in the current situation. Are they open to theft by Al Qaeda? Similar disappearances of fissile materials occurred during the breakup of the Soviet Union.

AND: This video, just off Twitter (#iranelection), certainly looks like a country in civil war.
