      I was taking you seriously up till that point, but I gotta say, that comment sounds an awful lot like troll.

      A friend of my daughter's went to visit her mother in Isfahan. She'd not seen her mother in twenty years. She and her husband are both American/Iranian citizens. Thier children were born in the US.

      She and her two children arrived in Isfahan a week before the election. Her husband elected to stay home (in the States) because he felt he needed to take care of the business they own.

      Since all hell broke loose in Isfahan, she has resorted to hiding in a closet, hiding from the goon squads.

      Amazingly, land line phone service comes and goes. In phone call to her husband (from the closet) a few days ago the monsters were banging loudly on the door of her mothers home, shouting "We know there are Americans in there~!" Why they did not break in and do whatever they were assigned to do is unknown.

      Yesterday, she made an attempt to take her children out for an ice cream. The streets seemed silent to  her, safe enough to take her children out in the fresh air.

      Suddenly, gunshots rang out. People began running for their lives. A man shouted to my daughter's friend, "GO home~! GO home~! Two blocks over they are breaking down doors~!". She was running carrying her children. The man was able to get her into a car and take her back to her mother's house.

      Frankly, I doubt she'll make it out alive. This is difficult at best to talk about.

      I'm willing to hear you out. Just know, given that I know a living person trapped in that madness, I will listen with a very careful ear.
