I think another Iranian revolution is coming soon.

Like trying to put a lid on a boiling pot.

Once again, good luck to the opposition of the hardliners. I hope they are patient and building coalitions for a revolution. It would be a very tough battle to win. It will take political persuasion of the masses.

The baseej carry the guns, the cops rely on trunchons, I guess? It's pretty obvious that the youth of Iran have realized that the 1979 revolution was hijacked by a dictatorship of the mullahs. After 30 years they have nothing to show for it. What a pity.

The 1979 Iranian 'revolution' reminds me of the 1789 French Revolution. Of course there are a lot of differences, but a big thing is that that both revolutions had unintended consequences... they ate each other.

Oh my. It seems Canada has gone off the deep end, embraced the politics and confrontational rhetoric of the Bush era, and begun saber-rattling. My sources at the Dearborn Kabob House have received reports that Lawrence Cannon, Canada's Minister of Foreign Affairs, has actually interfered in Iranian politics. In his capacity as representative of the Canadian people he has gone and condemned the alleged outbreaks of violence that in all likelihood are quite probably limited to Terehan - - if not to universities campuses. (Recall my previous judgement on this matter:students will be students.)

I'm glad we have a president and an administration that doesn't feel the need to meddle, and to meddle in things they know nothing about.

As long as Iran doesn't get cheeky and meddle with nuclear weapons and Israel, et al, I'm sure everything's gonna be pretty much confined to Iran.

Peachy is as peachy does.

Looks like the British are creating more unrest in Iran. ;)

“Given the fact that police did not use firearms, this incident looks completely suspicious and the case is under investigation,” Radan said. Reporters from foreign media organizations were barred from covering the demonstrations on Tehran’s central Enghelab Street, or Revolution Street. Video footage circulating on the Web could also not be authenticated.

Given the above statements, that the police were not using firearms, and that the video circulating cannot be verified, it is probably wise to assume that we are being fed a line, by the usual suspects, you know: WMD, Mushroom Clouds, 45 minutes to Armageddon etc. etc. Typical Tel Aviv & Langley "Booga Booga!" And even if both were true, it is a domestic issue, none of our business.. It's the Iranians' problem. Let the Iranians sort it out their own way. Look how well Eye-Rak was liberated!

I wish we had a strong leader, because these developements need to be resolved by regime change. The facist govenment that denies freedom to its people must be removed and the Nuclear program destroyed.

Iran must change or be changed by the force of good.

You're kidding, right?

Ordinary Iranians are litteraly risking their lives - some even giving their lives to protest against a despotic regime and you're blaming it on the US?

Thanks Madverts, this just goes to show how little some people know about the rest of the world. Probably a libertarian or Ron Paul voter.
