Lucky they are not in Europe. the police there would beat them to pieces. Remember the G7 protestor killed by police in Italy. These riots are started by western media and other interested parties, and the outcome will be a greater division between the educated capital class and the humble normal people.

"Mousavi's extremely slim hope of having the elections results annulled rest with Iran's Guardian Council, an unelected body of 12 clerics and Islamic law experts"

Oh, well.

When in the course of human Events, it becomes necessary for one People to dissolve the Political Bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the Earth, the separate and equal Station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent Respect to the Opinions of Mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the Separation.

We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness—-That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute a new Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient Causes; and accordingly all Experience hath shewn, that Mankind are more disposed to suffer, while Evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the Forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long Train of Abuses and Usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a Design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their Right, it is their Duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future Security. Such has been the patient Sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the Necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government.

Den Den, what world are you living in? People are being beaten to death, people are being shot to death. There are videos of dying girls with their lifeblood poring from their mouths. Witness it for yourself:

Unconfirmed reports put the death toll as high as 150 on the seventh day of post-election protests. Sources at one Tehran hospital confirmed 19 deaths Saturday.

President Obama condemns the Iranian gov't shooting its won citizens, then goes for ice cream.

Last week, President Obama caught and killed a fly, with his bare hands!

Man on the TV, he said we in America gots a real live ninja for a president.

And you know what? I believe it.

In fact, I believe everthing the mainstream media tell me.

Iran had better watch out.

Iranian repression of human expression since Nov 4 1979 had to go somewhere. Now that the lid of credibility has been blown off of "divine" government, there will be no putting it back on. “Death to Khamenei!“— this may be the ultimate showdown of god and government against pissed off fearless Iranians.

truimvere...come on, what are the law authorities supposed to do? They were very tolerant for a week, and now a minority of youths are smashing public property, starting fires and disrupting the capital. What was the french police's reaction in Paris? It is obvious if you listen to the bias rubbish on BBC that western media and western Iranian groups and "others" are inciting this for motives of their own. It seems you are falling for their bait, hook, line and sinker.

I wonder how all these Western sycophants who shake Ahmedinejads hands and invite him to Columbia and want to talk to him without preconditions feel now.

Ill tell you what theyre supposed to do: Ban outside reporters, slow down the internet and block Facebook, Twitter, etc - Just like they should have done in Europe.

Sorry Den Den but the regime you love so much in Tehran probably won't be the same again and there's nothing you can do to stop it. You should start learning to deal with it and move on.

Scary, scary stuff.

Is that the politically correct way nowadays to say intelligentsia and uneducated, easily manipulated poor?

Den Den,

Where are you getting your news, Press TV? People - real people - are dying in the streets and PROOF of this is all over both new and old media alike. How can you side with such blatant facism?

Heh, President Obama had an ice-cream after condemning Iran's response to the up-rising.

Really, it's not just the fundies in Iran that are falling apart. Implosions all 'round.

In case you were wondering whixh side Obama is on...

"Newsmax has learned that the Obama administration has zeroed out funding for pro-democracy programs inside Iran from the State Department budget for fiscal 2010, just as protests in Iran are ramping up.

"Funding for pro-democracy programs began in 2004, when Congress earmarked $1.5 million of the State Department budget for “educational, humanitarian, and non-governmental organizations and individuals inside Iran to support the advancement of democracy and human rights in Iran.”

This morning's headline in my newspaper: "Obama warns Iran "The world is watching"

The Mullahs must be laughing their asses off.

Pakistanis,afghans,iraqis,palestinians,arab nationals and shia iranians all searching for the elusive better leaders all the time.

They are never happy with any leadership,so is the rest of world but the rest of world, are keeping the law,peace and order process alive.

Mousavi leadership or Ahmedinejad leadership preference,making iranian kill scores of people in this post election protests.

Law and order now depends on the people of tehran,pro-mousavi or pro-govt factions need to come to a peace compromise.

Yeah, and all those basij militia who are shooting innocent people are actually BBC reporters in disguise.

Yep, he just can´t wait to have the non-conditional talks with the Great Leader Ahmedinejad; maybe brainstorming together on how to put pressure on the "dirty bacteria" Israel?

Truly bizarre.

I also wonder how the president of Columbian Uni feels now, after inviting the dictator to a swooning reception. Seems his subjects don´t share the unconditional love after all, and who knows --- maybe now we find out even that there are homosexuals in Iran?

Western intelligentsia and radical islamic nuts.... a heavenly match
