No one seems to be backing down in the continuing fall-out from the presidential elections in Iran, and the stakes are becoming higher by the day. There is palpable pressure mounting on all sides to seek a resolution. There will be more tense days to follow. It is one of those fragile and dangerous moments where anything can happen: one (insignificant) event, one (minor) act by one (normal) person can change the whole situation, especially in this age of mobile phones and Twitter.
