    how sad...even more sad is the world stood by and watched and did nothing.....the younger ones want freedom but cannot do it with rocks.....i heard yesterday they banned chanting "god is good" due to the protesters saying that...so we support democracy in countries that didnt want it....iraq but not in countries begging for it....and i didnt hear either party making any strong statements

    Oh, we'll support violent overthrow. The main issue seems to be which tyrant or puppet state is best for American financial interests, followed by our national security and political interests

    I feel so sorry for the family - and all the Iranian families that have to go through similar experiences... I wish we could help them... I wish anyone could help them... However, numerous societies before Iran have gone through similar uprisings and even civil wars to free themselves from fascist usurpers and we can see from history that there is very little other countries can do about it when it has already started... (unless you want to make it even worse). I'm sure there are people of other opinions. However, I don't think American guns are what is needed to help these people - maybe global words of encouragement streamed on Al-Jazeerah would provide some sort of moral support... all the other ways of helping I don't know...

    Sadly people around the world have gone through periods like this.

    Governments get so out of step with the will of the people that the people revolt.

    Naturally, those government will not go gently unto the dustbin of history.
