Saw this video linked from #iranelection on twitter:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/persian/iran/2009/06/090621_ag_street_clashes.shtml

Things look normal until about 1:45 into the video, when the protesters start throwing much bigger stones. The police start to retreat, and the protesters take off after them.

I love it when the police are run off and the crowd promptly pursues.

Seems like a sling would be a good thing to have in a rock throwing contest.

Check out this video from yesterday......

The reporting by the MSM is faulty at best.

...when the protesters start throwing much bigger stones.

The police did look like they were throwing stones into the much larger crowd of protesters. The police were evidently ill equipped and obviously heavily outnumbered. The sound tactic they utilized was a speedy retreat.

PLEASE watch the 3 minute BBC video at the link, watch it all. Imagine the courage of these people, knowing that at any moment, the police could fire live ammo at them.

Reminds me of the scene in Monty Python and the Holy Grail, where the French are pelting them with fruit and animals, and King Arthur yells, “RUN AWAY!”

This is hopeful sign. The unfortunate people of Iran have put up with a lot from their governments.

Great video, but these guys need to strategerize their rock throwing. What I mean is, if they can focus on and isolate a few government police with their rocks, then they have a better chance to take down the police and thereby upgrade their rocks to a firearm or three.

Step two follows: Take their rocks and the few firearms they just got, and focus on and isolate a few more government police, taking their weapons as their own. Keep doing that strategegorically, and soon they will have a bunch of rocks and a whole bunch of guns.

And the more peasants who appropriate the government police sticks that shoot 1,000fps "rocks", the more the police will rethink their career choice, and may well quit their jobs on-the-spot.

It works on paper, anyway.

Good luck, my freedom-yearning Persian brothers and sisters. I am praying that you meet with success.
