I will participate in the demonstrations tomorrow. Maybe they will turn violent. Maybe I will be one of the people who is going to get killed.
Im listening to all my favorite music. I even want to dance to a few songs.
I always wanted to have very narrow eyebrows. Yes, maybe I will go to the salon before I go tomorrow!
There are a few great movie scenes that I also have to see. I should drop by the library, too. Its worth to read poems again.
All family pictures have to be reviewed, too. I have to call my friends as well to say goodbye. All I have are two bookshelves which I told my family who should receive them.
Im two units away from getting my bachelors degree but who cares about that. My mind is very chaotic.
I wrote these random sentences for the next generation so they know we were not just emotional and under peer pressure.
So they know that we did everything we could to create a better future for them. So they know that our ancestors surrendered to the Arabs and the Mongols but did not surrender to despotism.

IT IS ABOUT F’ING TIME THE IRANIANS DO THIS. THE US ARMED FORCES ARE ON EITHER SIDE OF YOUR COUNTRY. YOU WILL HAVE NO BETTER FRIEND THAN A US MARINE. THEY ARE THERE. NOT FAR AWAY. THEY OWE THE MULLAHS.
The US will do nothing for them, the guys that “won” in November support religious totalitarianism.
The mullahs are going to clamp down tomorrow......so it do or die for the brave Iranians!
God these people are inspiring me! I don’t care why they do it, I want the mullahs to go and from many blogs I have read, there is no great love for A’jad’s opponent, the citizens are seizing this opportunity to rise up!
Without orders from their CiC? You know “That One” will never issue such orders.
Shore nuff. Part of Bush’s plan was to surround Iran, the principal terrorist nation and then put the squeeze on them. I think he was counting on a right minded president to succeed him. With the guy who plays the president on tv, this situaion may be compromised or be much more difficult that intended. However, there are US forces on two of their borders.
The coward Obama will do nothing for them.
They are on their own.
Of course, if they succeed, a BIG if, Obama will attempt to claim credit for it.
But at this point, succeeding may bring nothing but another effed up regime to deal with. I hope not.
May the spirt of freedom burn in these brave people’s heart tomorrow. And may Gob be with them!
Maybe we can catch the spark as well.
Meanwhile in the US our government strips our freedoms daily and we riot because the Lakers won.
"Perhaps today is a good day to die."
My Iranian brothers know this - that if it comes to death you do so with honor and your names will be sung by the brotherhood of all who strive for freedom.
I concur. But will the mullah’s go quietly? Will their proxies go quietly? Will their provocations be unanswered? I dunno w/Obama.
But the bloodlust in the US will go up if the proxies or Iran itself does something.
One way out for the mullah’s is to unite the country gainst the infidel invader whether he wears a 5 or 6 pointed star.
Sure does make us look like a pack of wussies (in comparison) for tolerating what we are tolerating.
Sorry, “May God be with them”
Had something in my eye.
Too bad our joke of a president doesn’t have this kind of strength. Our dear leader is concerned though...
The world is watching. The brave people of Iran are hoping and praying for support in their extreme hour of need.

Sounds to me that the Ayatollah has given an ultimatum to the protesters to either stop the protests or there will be blood in the streets. This could get ugly real fast. The next 48 hours will be crucial
This guy spent eight years in the Illinois Senate voting “Present”.
What do you think he’s going to do?
Revolutions tend to be very bloody and very unpredictable. When you add the hysterical religious element it could go nuclear, (figuratively), very, very quickly.
And, you never know what you’ll see in the end.
