BIG TURMOIL in Iran today as the regime marks the 31st anniversary of the Islamic revolution. There's clashes reported throughout Tehran and other parts of the country. Karoubi and Khatami were allegedly attacked by security forces, though everything is very difficult to confirm as there's a virtual blackout, with news media and the Internet blocked (even Gmail!).

The festivities started with Ahmadinejad announcing that Iran is now "a nuclear state".
I could say, "I told you so," but it's not like I'm happy about that. It'll be hard to know the details or have real clarity on what's going on or what he's said for awhile, b/c of the news blackout.
