Discussion in 'Iran' started by Annie, Jun 20, 2009.
so far tear gas and water cannons:
Witnesses: police clash with Tehran protesters - Yahoo! News
this could get very ugly
We do the same here to protesters
Remember the tear gas and beatings the protesters recieved at the Democratic Comvencion at Chicago in the 60's ???
is it still time to be mute or do we as a country speak up...as they begin to slaughter their younger generations in the streets....brown has spoken out and now england is the hated one....so now we dont speak out due to fear of being hated..or to let england take the heat or merely to look on...
It's their country, laws, culture.
Let them work it out among themselves.
They Do Not need our help. Period
Sullivan has been tweeting live all week, some interesting things in the past few minutes:
The Daily Dish | By Andrew Sullivan
The Mullah fundamentalists just signed their own death warrants, I suspect.
The best and the brightest Iranians are NOT going to stand down.
Oh that class may not be able to withstand this reaction for the moment, but who do you suppose are the people on the streets?
It's the college students and the professional class which makes that nation work that are out there protesting.
They'll take to the streets or they'll vote with their feet (i.e., leave Iran) but either way the Fundamentalists just alienated the very people that make that nation the money it needs to survive.
I note that this nation is ALSO fractured between their country-bumpkin religious losers and the urban professional class. (much like our is only much much much more so)
Well guess which class is actually necessary for a vibrant economy?
That educated class of Iranians does NOT hate America, or freedom. Hell, many of them went to school here, they KNOW who we are.
And now the fundamentalist morons in Iran have declared war on the very class that feeds them!
It was inevitable, I suppose.
Iran is and has been a modern nation (by whatever the standards were of the time)for the last 5000 years!
Those people are not about to allow their nation to be run by 12th century minds.
They will prevail.
America...stay the fuck out of this fracus.
They need to win this battle without the WEST'S interference because when they do, then nobody in Iran can say that they're tools of America.
Stay out of it, let them win it themselves and then we're ALL going to be better off.
Israel, the CIA, and Britan are behind the unrest in Iran.
They want a government they can control and a leader who will be their puppet.
got any evidence to back up your claims?
Bullshit. The mullahs are every bit as fascist as Hitler was. They will no more have their 1000 years than he did.
Separate names with a comma.
