Skip to comments.Before the Battle (Iranian Citizens Preparing to March to Their Deaths Tomorrow)
Posted on 06/19/2009 2:01:27 PM PDT by lewisglad
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.

Obama’s popularity has nosedived with this crsis going on... maybe the American people will finally wake up
WHile Iranians are bravely marching for their freedom that is the time to bomb the nuke plants... Bomb them already...strike while the wind is still swirling over the mullahs heads. Bomb the nukes and eff the UN and world reactions!
Best of luck.
Invasions have frequently had the opposite effect in that it has given license to the invaded country to crackdown on dissent. I don’t claim to know what would happen in the unlikely event that the US Army rolls, but I think that it is more likely to harden the Iranian response rather than weaken it.
Then your sitting there with a thin slice of Iranian territory an no “Plan B.” Iran is a pretty vast & rugged country.
Are they not shouting God is Great from the rooftops, the same as when the protests were anti-Shah and anti-American? Is their leader not virulently anti-Israel, pro-nuclear, pro-Hezbollah?
My conclusion is that this is not really about democracy, but merely another instance of Islamic chaos.. which I’m more than happy to say is good for the world. Wonderful if the Iranians are too busy to further harm Israel and Lebanon. But I see no good coming from shouting Allahu-Akbar from the rooftops and the use of the color green.
It’s messy and confusing and I think it’s something that they should sort out entirely among themselves.
This is Top Secret, but I have intuited that you are trustworthy.
He a tool; as in wedge. Understand?
If the street demonstrations were to really get out-of-hand, the Mullahs might lose political power. It would appear that Khameni has cut the cord with the loser of the election. If that individual were to benefit, and consolidate power, Khameni & his crew might be out.
I agree that this wouldn’t mean a ‘friendly’ Iran, but it certainly would be an improvement for the average Iranian — especially females.
>Meanwhile in the US our government strips our freedoms daily and we riot because the Lakers won.<
We ceased to be one nation a long time ago when we became a heterogeneous society. Iran, with all its problems, is still very much a united country and will survive long after the US and Europe. Iranians still believe in an Iran.
One cannot say that about the US where there are plenty of jihadists (and more coming in) and large groups who have no intention to assimilate but rather change the country to resemble the one they just left. Then there are those who downright hate this country and want it destroyed.
Interesting observation. Apparently the armchair warriors of FR, when faced with a REAL revolution, prefer Obama's plan. Do nothing.....
You are beginning to see the light of what Iran, the Middle East and Islam is all about.
I hope you’re right. I once participated in an Iranian student protest for democracy and was shocked to see how all the different factions were fanatical and even physically violent. It’s that damned Islamic ethos that seems to REQUIRE oppression.
We look at these people and are in awe at their bravery. How many of us would be as brave? Well, speaking for myself, I would rather die than live in an Islamic hell-hole. They probably feel the same way.
Return to your fetal position....tuff boy. I have no use for defeatists, such as yourself.
I'll go out and blow away the local constable.
That'll do a lot of good, right?
Learn some history, learn some strategy and then come crawling back.
Tie a green rag around your head in the meantime.
I believe they are blowing away the Basiji, which are the personal militia of the Supreme Ruler. But don't let facts get in the way of your "They're all dead" rant. Try to grow a pair...
