I wish I could figure out whose side they're on so I could either praise them or call them commies. :)

But these are nice photos, thanks for posting them.

They are on our side!

btw, that Commie label doesn't apply to Iranian students.

We're different than those students in the US protesting the Iraq war or Pres. Bush

We want our freedom!

A non-moonbat university protest? I am intrigued and wish to learn more.

I thought it odd that sign was written in english in a country where virtually no one speaks english.

A little pimping for the media I suppose.

Great news. If only we could ship some of our college students over there, they might learn something about how "hard" they have it in America.

Good luck to the students, though I fear for their chances under their nation's current leadership. Tough times may be ahead, but if Iraq can have the beginnings of a democracy, anything is possible.

Yeah, that's the sad thing about seeing such code phrases as "bread for all" and such. But here's hoping those phrases don't mean the same thing there.

In college I remember the Iranian students protesting the Shah, then they got what they wanted... Ayatollah Khomeini (sp?)... I guess this would be the sons daughters and grandkids of the first group who aren't very happy with what their elders achieved for them.

I just want you to know how much I appreciate your contributions to this forum, your bravery, and your good spirit.

I have known two Iranians personally. I must say, they are two of the finest, most gracious, capable, and accomplished people I have ever known. I hope very much that someday you will have the freedom that our own President Carter denied you through his perfidy.

"We're different than those students in the US protesting the Iraq war or Pres. Bush We want our freedom!"

I truly hope so. I've seen too much from the democracy movements in Islamic countries that make me very nervous that they are looking to join the leftists, which would create an "out-of-the-frying-pan and into the fire type scenario. I pray you are right.

Ditto that for sure. The democracy movement is Iran's only hope and I only pray that the US administration is giving it support...under OR over the radar. We don't want to see innocent Iranians killed because of the words and/or actions of its government.

I hate the fact that they have them locked inside of the universities. It's time for the rest of the Iranian people to join them in their fight.

I pray you receive them without bloodshed.

Unfortunately, freedom is not free. Fighting for it is the only way to achieve it.

It's possible that these students are some of the best friends we could ever have in the Middle East. I pray they are successful. They want freedom and risk their lives at these protests.

Please write your elected officials and tell them that Iranians need their support, Please write to President Bush and tell him he has to do more than he is doing right now.

Please ask the US government to help us gather the opposition in exile and form an Iranian version of Iraq's INC

We need to be heard! We need to be seen!

Please!

We can not do much in Iran. It is getting worse every single day and I am afraid the US and Israel will attack our beloved country soon and many many die.

All we want is a peaceful democracy in accordance with the rest of the world!

Well, our MSM seems to think three naked PETA girls make a revolution -- BIG news.

How about tens of thousands of young Iranians marching in the streets? And our media ignores it.

And being jailed for life, with worse torture than panties on your head?

Just for speaking your mind?

I may be a dumb hillbilly, but I know a plan when I see one -- and George W. Bush has a plan for the Middle East.

It won't be about bombing, or "occupation," as some like to call it. It'll be just what he says it is, "A taste of freedom."

About 15 years ago, I sat next to an Iranian (she said call it EERAN, not Iran) woman in a restaurant in Dallas, and she explained to me the specifics of what happened in Iran in the 1970s, and, basically foretold what is happening there now.

We need to support this movement in Iran. The people will overthrow the mullas, and we'll have the support next door in Iraq to back 'em up.

Somehow, stupid, lazy and bored Americans trying to save chickens (PETA) just don't seem as important to me as a whole nation begging for the taste of freedom our President speaks about.

Great page. Loved the photo of Tehran with the mountains in the background.

Someday Iran will be free, and please accept my prayers for your strengh and wisdom.

I don't think that's the choice. So my answer is "neither". Although in Africa, at least, communism mostly lead to countries imploding and not to their exporting terror. But that's a textbook choice, not the one I expect we'll have in real life. (from a fellow Massachusetts GOP-er)

LOL!

My heroes do not include that super model or Pink Floyd!

Of course I'd rather have Benjamin Franklin or Abraham Lincoln as my heroes.

I am fond of your constitution and the way your society works

I had to put something in my page to make it understandable for the average joe living in this planet

Thanks for the compliment any how
