    This is a sad day for Iran not only because of who announced winner but because of how he won. Poor Iranian people to stay in line for 3+hours to vote and see their votes does not even counted and the results to be engineered shamelessly.

    Wow! What a surprise about the election results (sarcasm intended). I am just shocked that there wasn't an independent body overseeing these obviously rigged elections. A 2 year old could have seen this coming a mile away. Someone like Ahmadinejah would never want to give up power or declare defeat and would be willing to steal an election. Why didn't the opposition party think of that before going to the polls? However, regards of the outcome, I am pleased that there is a growing movement in Iran to have better relations with the United States. True movements usually start with young people and women and the tide is changing...

    Freedom has been misrepresented in the Iranian election.
    There was so much corruption and injustice involved that the true voice of the Iranian people could not be heard.

    ALL the banners showed Moseni picture! There was NOT even one banner showing Ahmadinejad!

    All the text messaging Iranians used to communicate were stopped because of the fear Ahmadinejad had of loosing the vote. By far and large Moseni is the true winner if justice is to be served.

    Ahmad nejad won the election only with fraud and force . Iranian people need your (CNN) support . Please report the truth so the world find out about the unjust system in Iran. Iranian people did not vote for him.They didn't choose him.

    I wonder how much of the violence is CIA mischief within the Bourgeoisie. It should become apparent soon. The masses win what we take on.

    It is not surprising to see the results of the Iranian elections, especially when the Mullas are the one who decide "on behalf" of the people.
    It is not surprising under such regimen, the dictator "Ayatullah" decides, and not the people...
    The Iranian people would never ever advocate such a closed-minded, idology-driven person like Ahmadinajad. The Iranians just as other people in the world looking towards prosperity and peace.

    As an Iraqi citizen, the results worry me, especially when four more years of Iranian interference in, and influence on Iraqi situations.

    The results of the election remind me of Bush's 2000 election.

    @ Lori

    They asked for UN independent body but Iran's law wouldn't permit such thing, specially supreme leader oppose anyone involvement in overseeing election due to their fraudulent activities and votes.
    Anyway, any candidate could have someone to oversee election stations, so taking into consideration people who voted for Mousavi, he is rightfully claims winning position but the problem is just not vote rigging, it is a coupe by supreme leader and revolutionary guards against green movement, Mr. Mousavi.

    Also I recommend every Iranian who voted for anyone except Ahmadineajd, file complains in the UN offices around the globe. If everything goes well, we set up a system to gather complains within Iran and we will manage to lodge those complains in UN office either inside of Iran or outside of Iran.

    People please get back to me and let me know what do you think of this idea? If we start this from tomorrow, we will establish groups within a week inside if Iran and outside to gather complains.

    America is trying so hard to get the young people around the world
    and people as a whole around the world to think like Americans.
    But do the people of the world know how Americans think.
    No they do not know how Americans think, and no one will every know.
    And getting the world to think that way is a very bad thing.

    Why is CNN not covering this. Twitter has more information on the riots than CNN. I'm watching Larry King. He is talking with bikers and looking at old cars and bikes while Tehran is making news.

    I know exactly how the Iranians protesting the election outcome feel. I felt the same way after George W. Bush won........twice.
