Through twitter. Girl shot to death by basij
Do not watch this unless you are willing to see someone die before your eyes.
I wish I could fly over there with my SKS and help them.
Hate to be a bummer but I predict that within 24 hours he’ll be dead.
I really want this to succeed, but I haven’t a clue what it’s going to take.
Fats in the fire now. Hope we see a regime change out of all this sacrifice.
This protest demonstrates the importance of all of us being armed. These people are NOT armed and are unable to fight back against gas and acid being dropped by helicopters or anything using sheer force. They only have themselves and their bodies to offer up.
If Mousavi is killed, then all hell will break loose in Iran. With what’s happening there and in North Korea, the world is teetering on the brink of chaos.
How soon before the haloed one invokes Kent State when he is asked about incidents such as this?
Time for Israel to wait until they arrest Mousaivi and make sure things really go haywire in Iran
The guy was a hardass in the 1980s. He was just as bad as I'mANutJob now.
There are armed citizens, and armed basij. Kill a couple of them and take their weapons. The army will not get involved, and has said so. If they get involved, it will be to kill the mullahs, the basij, and the hezbollah cowards ahcmadinnerjacket brought in to stop the revolution.
The people there need to realize they have two choices - become real martyrs for their country, or shut up, go home, and enjoy another term of achmadinnerjacket.
Letter bomb - then try to blame it on Israel somehow.
Goebells is watching all this with envy from Hell.
Important statement. But I’m not going to Andrew Sullivan’s blog to read it.
Probably but he gives the kids good feelings about feeling good about good things here and and the koskiddy site. This is probably one colored revolution too far and even the nut mullahs have probably figured a way to discredit the methods, or maybe not.
Actually it could be somewhat of a hint if they do blame the CIA or Mossad. If they go heavy on the Mossad, it might indicate tacit approval for their brother Barry.
No Sir! The world is already in chaos. We just haven’t joined it yet.
He was Khomeini’s PM, the guy who recruited Khan for Iran’s nuke program, and one of the founders of Hezbollah.
316 views so far.
That’s gonna go viral.
Warning: very, very graphic. Probably the most graphic (and certainly one of the saddest) deaths I’ve seen.
Yet Obama does not support these freedom fighters, instead he tells dumb jokes, laughs while the state run media coos like a baby over his ability to kill a fly.
Thanks to a failed Obama leadership and corrupt politicians, we may see what we are watching, far worse..... on our own streets before all is done.
Are you telling me that the Iranian military is supporting the people? Who is doing the shooting? Hezbollah-are they dressed differently than the Iranian army? Do the Iranian people know the difference upon seeing them? And the basij? The ones who are reportedly taking over the hospitals. Who are they? Are they a special army of the Mullah’s? Do the folks over there know the difference?
That could be the thing that brings down the mullahs.
The regime change horse is out of the stable and there is no turning back.
Wonder what the chances this is a fight between those who want to nuke Isreal and those who want to talk about nuking Isreal. Which is which?
Don’t forget about the mullahs.
Mousavi was the Prime Minister of Iran in the 1980s. He was a hardliner then and he's a hardliner now. He's just going the Arafat "moderate" route, that's all.
Doesn’t matter, once the ball really gets rolling Mousavi may not end up in office anyway...
The first video was pulled. I don’t think this one will last long either.
I think that Mousavi is a catalyst for revolution, not the leader of the revolution. It could be anyone in his place. The people are oppressed and see a glimmer of freedom. The more they get oppressed the more they will dig there heals in.
Not unlike Iraq, there's sectarian, ethnic and even some tribal militia's or militia's that are loyal to a particular Mullah in Iran. I would guess the militia's that are doing the shooting belong to Mullah's that are pro-government.
Kind of hard to get excited about a guy with a resume like that.
You know what? I was thinking the same thing about Mousavi... didn't he approve of the atomic bomb program? I have to wonder if this is just a power grab with the same ol' boss...
If the mullahs don’t want to follow the Ayatollah Khomeini’s path into exile in Europe, they’d better make sure nothing happens to Ahmadinejad while he’s in Russia.
BTW...does anybody notice that Ahmadinejad is out of sight?
It's pretty obvious what it is going to take: The Iranian Army -- or at least key units -- are going to have to revolt & go over to the side of the demonstrators. They are the only armed counterweight to the Basij (Revolutionary Guards) and flying columns of Arab thugs. Question is, will they?
The basij are basically unemployed hoodlums who take a check from the mullahs as “religious police.” They arrest kids who drink or date in normal time, and oppress the people in times like this.
Their are reports that much of the police now speaks arabic, which is strange, because almost all of Iran speaks farsi. Many people think that its hizbullah recruits from Lebanon.
The Iranian Army says it will not be forced to participate, but if things get any hairier, you might see them turn against the mullahs. Many of them remember the shah’s rule and hate the basij as well.
Andrew Sullivan is doing a great job on these riots.
It’s almost (almost!) enough to offset his asinine demand that
Sarah Palin submit to a first-ever maternity test.
That was horrifying and soooo sad.
God help these people and I don’t mean by giving them supposed ‘peace’ with a thug regime.
He was also the person responsible for pushing for nuclear ‘energy’.
The graphic part didn’t get me as much as the anguish in the father’s voice as he’s crying and watching his daughter die right in front of his eyes and know there is nothing he can do.
Maybe, maybe not. If the Iranian people succeed in gaining their freedom, we may see dramatic improvements in that part of the world. May God watch over these brave, brave people as they struggle for liberty.
I think one thing that has really grabbed the attention of the Iranian people is that they know they are screwed and ruled by the Mullahs regardless, but with Mousavi and his public adoration of his wife, the women felt that they might begin to be slightly empowered.
They take a little when they can get it, you know?
