What's going on is official gov't policy. I.e. the government over there is ordering violent suppression.
What happened at Kent State was NOT ordered by the White House. It was one isolated incident. Exacerbated, I might add, by communists students accusing the Gov't falsely. The students in Iran, however, are agitating for true freedom.
This is interesting since I kinda compare Iran’s election to our ACORN community agitator phoney election in so many places which, by the way, the swooning press failed to investigate at all; yet, we’re subjected to round-the-clock coverage of the same shenanigans going on in Iran.
