Iranian protests

I haven't seen much about this in the press in the US, but BBC News is carrying a report about a protest in Iran by students against the Muslim clerics that now run the country.

Not surprising that students like to protest against whatever is going on. In the late 1970's, student-led protests caused the country to become an Islamic "republic" after the Iranian revolution. However, the reforms hoped for turned into a heavily state-run country instead of the true Islamic democracy that was hoped for by some of the protesters.
