We don’t care about the people of Iran

A new Human Rights Watch report on the desperation in Iran one year after the disputed elections:

Reports received by Human Rights Watch from human rights campaigners and others inside Iran suggest that the current atmosphere inside the country is markedly different than the images of mass protest beamed across airwaves and cyberspace a year ago. Public protest demonstrations have all but disappeared and dissent has largely gone underground as security forces have bolstered their presence in major cities throughout the country.

While the world obsesses about Tehran’s supposed nuclear program, citizens in the Islamic Republic are mere pawns in the Great Game being played out in Washington and Tel Aviv.
