Iran Elections - A Warning to the People of Taiwan

As I'm frantically studying for my last finals of my undergraduate, this is going to be short, but I hope to cover this more in-depth later.

As you may or may not know, Iranian elections on June 12, 2009 have been the news of this week on CNN.com, mainly due to the allegations that the elections were rigged or votes mishandled, or purposely mishandled. Here's one of many stories covering it, from Bloomberg.com.

Pictures and Videos here (may be graphic).

Also, a better in-depth look at the elections and the time leading up to it by a former correspondent for TIME. In the last paragraph, the author notes:

I am not ashamed of having voted in Iranian elections past, but I have a fresh appreciation for the wisdom of Shirin Ebadi, who from long experience battling the Iranian regime had accurately recognized her foe. And I am still not certain that I will boycott elections in the future. If people had not voted in Iran on such a grand scale, the world would have assumed once again that people had chosen Ahmadinejad as their President. Now Iranians have made their discontent clear, and though their votes have been discounted, their voices have been heard. Ahmadinejad may remain President of Iran, but his legitimacy has been shaken to its core, not just before his nation but before the world. Iranians managed that by voting, and it is a powerful accomplishment indeed.
This is what I want all you who are Taiwanese to take notice. Do not ever take for granted your right to vote and choose. Even if it is rigged, the strength in numbers of the outpouring of anger against the Iranian elections is at least a glimmer of hope that they can grasp onto.

So in the upcoming DPP referendum as to whether or not to put the ECFA to a vote, I urge you to urge others, to urge their parents and friends to vote on the issue. Regardless of if you are for or against it, vote on it. Because when enough people get mad enough and upset enough, there will be real change. Not the Obama change that was based on good feelings and social popularity (how many Obama voters did you know were actually really mad and upset, and I mean really mad, to the point where they would protest on the streets? I can think of, exactly none of my friends). So the DPP has an advantage already, because we know, and the DPP knows that there is already a decent amount of Taiwanese in Taiwan that are upset with the current Ma administration, so much as to take to the streets on 5/17.

Nothing truly has come out of that rally, but little by little, support is gathered. Do not stand by and wait for what is happening in Iran to happen in Taiwan. Do you really want to see millions of Taiwanese, once again in the streets with blood flowing and police fighting you and your family?

Also, for the Americans, a look at the Iran elections and how we, as Americans, are failing Iran and the world, by Karl Denninger.

Finally, latest news says 7 killed in attack in Tehran (albeit it is reported that the killed were attacking a military post). Is this just the beginning? Best case, this is it, and maybe the demonstrations are put down peacefully. Worst case? This becomes the Tianamen Massacre of Iran's history.
