Iran is Imploding

Bloomberg is reporting that ten more people have been killed during the protests in Iran. And that family members of Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, including his daughter Faezeh Hashemi, have been arrested for supporting the protests. Rafsanjani is a former President of Iran, and is currently head of the Assembly of Experts; the clerrical body that has the power to appoint and dismiss the Supream Leader. It is now likely that Rafsanjani will call the Assembly into session in order to remove Khameni from power.

It looks more and more like Iran could slip into civil war.
