For those of you that don't speak Farsi, the sign in front of Mr. Ayatollah says "I fear our young people, and I will now kill them and jail them"



Unless, of course, they can get him first.

I will laugh hysterically at all of you people calling these people heroes. If it changes anything, then great but the reality is that democracy is incongruent with the way middle eastern people (including Persians) live. They will end up trading one tyrant for another.....that is how it works here. If you don't believe me then you need to come over for a visit.

Like our govt wouldn't do the same thing to us if we revolted.

Franz Joseph of Austria was constantly under pressure to make changes because the people were tired of monarchs.
At 84, he resisted these impulses, having experienced the loss of his wife, son, etc. to anarchists.
He wisely said: "Change does not necessarily mean improvement".
We all know that the "change" of that era led to: World War 1 and a Bolshevik revolution in Russia.

I think there is no doubt of election fraud, I think the young people over there are right to fight, but I hope we all know where we are going here.
and in answer to les: YES the government here WILL shoot you down in a revolt. They have done it before in the 60s and prior to that. But that is the nature of "change".
