Now that the results of the Iranian election are out, I just posted a roundup of blogger coverage of the Iranian election over at Global Voices. Go read it over there. Click through to the Iranian bloggers and ask them questions in their comments sections if you want to know more. They're eager to know that you care about what they think.
Iran's bloggers are young, tech-savvy, yearning for democracy, and yearning to be part of the global community. They don't want the mullahs controlling their lives. But from reading their blogs, it's clear they're drawing a sad conclusion from the past week's events.
They're concluding that the Bush administration and the conservative mullahs are united in a desire to see the reformist movement fail in Iran.
This may or may not be an accurate conclusion if you're looking at it from the Bush administration's point of view, but that's how things look from the ground in Teheran... from the eyes of young Iranians whose hopes have been dashed.
How incredibly sad.
