  • Is Iran at the precipice of a revolution?

    It's not looking good for the Mullahs.

    things are just fine for the mullahs.... protests are against the ruling party, not them (unfortunately).

      We are fighting with our lives and the world is just watching," said Ali, a Tehran University student who did not want his full name used for safety reasons. "They see how the government is trying to silence us, how they are beating us -- but they don't come to our help. It's OK. We will succeed, even if we have to fight alone."

      How can we possibly help these people? It could get real ugly.

        Whether it's I'maDinnerJacket or the other dude, doesn't really matter. It's a dysfunctional kleptocracy that shields itself from criticism by basing the system on a pre-Medieval book composed by charlatans.

        I really don't want to be harsh or sound like some anti-PC redneck, because I actually live in a nominally Muslim country and understand what the average Muslim is dealing with, but when a government puts ALL its eggs in that twisted basket like Iran has, there really is no happy ending.

          The worst thing that can happen to the protesters is that the U.S. gets involved or that Obama makes some billigerent or bellicose statement. Then the Mullahs and Ahmadinejad would say this is 1953 all over again and Moussavi is another Shah. Pat Buchanan wrote a great column on this yesterday.

            Everyone is talking about the sham electoral process in Iran but no one has mentioned the equally sham elections that took place in Palestine that robbed Hezbollah it was just like the sham Presidential elections that took place in this country in '00 that robbed Gore of the Presidency in Florida.

                  Hezbollah is in Lebanon, not Palestine and I don't think Hassan Nasrallah would have been so gracious in defeat if he thought that the election was rigged.

                          I have to agree with SQUACKEE on this one. In Florida, what happened is that the US. Supreme Court, in a straight party line vote, denied the American citizens an honest and accurate vote count similar to what's going on with the Minnesota Senate race. I look at vote counting the way I look at instant replay in football. The most important thing is to get the right decision, not a fast decision. I don't think anyone ever accused Bush or anyone else of conspiring beforehand to dilberately miscount the votes in Florida, which is what Ahmadinejad is being accused of.

                            Come on man! Jews had nothing to do with elections in Lebanon, and neither did Zionists. You're really exposing yourself now. Are you trying to get Garry to ban you?
