I doubt it will all be nonviolent, but better than US military intervention, it we have time. Lets hope it's not too late.

(Until they are Free, "We shall all be Iranians!")
The American Congress and the Bush Administration needs to say openly that they are against the Iranian regime. Make the Iranian people aware than Iranian regime change is official US policy. And have Bush add in there that the regime's time is quickly running out. I think when the Iranians know for sure that the US is definitely on their side, it will embolden the Iranian resistance. Again, ideally, the US military only goes to Iran for assassinations, stability operations, and securing nuclear facilities.
Although, unless the resistance has weapons, they may have difficulty overthrowing their regime. Or maybe if the masses revolt, they maybe that would do the trick. The downside is that you have complete chaos. And then you have a power vacuum - who takes over next? It's unimaginable that you could get a worse regime in power, yet it might not be pretty. Don't want a heavy American presence, and don't trust the UN. Don't want anarchy, either.
