Iran Parliamentary Elections May Favor the Hard-Liners. No shit, really? The "Hard-Liners" refused to let their opponents run, those opponents are mostly calling for a boycott of the "election", the opposing newspapers have been suppressed and shut down, and there are reports of people being forced to vote by threats to their services and benefits. You think maybe the elections might go the way of the "Hard-Liners"? Are y'all sure you want to go that far out on a limb? Maybe you might want to put a few more qualifiers in there, cover all your bases?
