Iran media: 8 Basijis shot dead during protests

Driving home from a meeting last night on peaceful streets to our condo in a quiet area, I pondered how different it would be for anyone in Tehran now, if they even dared to go out on the streets at all, given the very real possibility of getting killed or maimed.

The protests are inchoate rage now. They need to morph into something much more focused, if they want to topple the government. There seems no middle ground any more, either. Either the government falls or the repression will be hideous.
