It may very well get bloodier over the next 48 hours.
So where’s the Johnny-on-the-spot United Nations?
“CNN also quoted unconfirmed reports that put the actual death toll at 150.”
Poor people. They just want to be free.
At least CNN is finally doing some real reporting!
As our media continues to run rough shot over reality:
Young Iranian dissident, Amir Fakhravar, formerly jailed protestor in Iran. Says protests are about freedom, are against the supreme leader (they have no particular love for Mousavi).
When will Europe and the UN allow us to get involved?
Protesters get tired of militia and police killing demonstrators and throw Molotov cocktails into police stations in middle of night. They track militia members to homes and drag them out after hours and make example of them.
Whenever anyone kills a fellow countryman at the government's behest there will be hell to pay....
At 19:05 June 20th, Place: Karekar Ave., at the corner crossing Khosravi St. and Salehi st.
A young woman who was standing aside with her father watching the protests was shot by a basij member hiding on the rooftop of a civilian house. He had clear shot at the girl and could not miss her. However, he aimed straight her heart. I am a doctor, so I rushed to try to save her. But the impact of the gunshot was so fierce that the bullet had blasted inside the victims chest, and she died in less than 2 minutes.
The protests were going on about 1 kilometers away in the main street and some of the protesting crowd were running from tear gass used among them, towards Salehi St.
May God hear my prayers for the soul of Neda, the divine message. May He give her peace and the freedom that she died seeking. May He also bless the ones who bring the light of truth to my eyes, so that those who seek darkness fail.
News from Iran from this twitterer, tweeter? http://twitter.com/jenafern
Where is the UN? Where is Jimmy Carter? Where are all the human rights groups? This is disgusting.
The irony of Ahmadinejad now being in president of a country being torn apart by rioting students is stunning considering he was one of those “students” responsible for taking Americans hostage for 444 days. Wondering if he thinks student activists are such a great thing at this point?
The freedom fight is on.

I don't think they are destined to overcome the Ayatollah’s regime. If they do, things may cool down between Iran and Israel and I don't think that will be how it plays out.
Will be interesting to see how the Obamination tries to deal with Iran in the future. How can you legitimately talk with a gov’t that is killing their own people? How will he manage to blame this one on the US?
I would bet there are many more dead than that. They go to hospitals and any wounded are rounded up and carted off. They have hauled off hundreds, if not thousands, since these protests began. No telling how many of those were killed out of sight of any cameras and cell phones.
Its not about elections anymore ....its about FREEDOM vs ISLAM
They need to Shut down the Airport and the set fire to that big asssed refinery ASAP
