Much has already been said about the Iranian election; I suspect very little I would have to say would not be an echo of something said elsewhere. But one thing strikes me: the amount of people from within Iran using English to communicate to the outside world — not just in blogs or via Twitter, but on paper signs held up for cameramen. "Where is my vote!?" one such sign cried out. They are, I guess, all too certain that real change cannot come from within alone there, and that it must be aided by outside pressure (albeit that of statesmanship and policy, and not tanks 'n missiles).
