Over a year after protests erupted throughout Iran following its presidential election, the country is anything but quiet. This week, another wave of unrest spread throughout Tehran due to threats made to reformist leaders. The turmoil can be seen here in the U.S. as President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is scheduled to speak at the UN General Assembly on Thursday, already sparking protests in New York.
