where do they get all the rocks?
I normally would not advise bringing rocks to riot, but that’s all they got.
Oh c’mon now, you can throw out some bones can’t you?
Yeah, definitely Turks. They are toughnuts. They’ve got the best army in the Middle East other than Israel’s, and the 2nd largest NATO army as well. Even from the early days Turks were known for their battle skills. Once they crossed the Oxus River into the Islamic lands, everyone wanted to hire them as guards for the royalty.
It can happen anywhere. Even armed police or military understand that being outnumbered by a high enough ratio guarantees your defeat. Gen. Custer established that.
And it is the continuing effect of Bush's policies over there in Iraq and Afghanistan. A tinder box was lit with successful freedom (to whatever extent...it is much better than Hussein or the Taliban) in Iraq and Afghanistan, and that fire is continuing to burn and spreading.
I have seen several of the videos of the killings as they happened or right after. The Basij, who are usually not perisans and amount to Hamas or Hezbollah in Iran, are the ones doing the shooting, usually from rooftops. That is how the young girl Neda was killed.
Soon, the Iranian people will begin taking them down. On twitter, the Iranians posting are regualrly (as are the protestors) chanting "Death to the Basij" and "Death to Khamenei" now.
There is no going back. They want liberty and they are willing to die to attain it...God bless 'em.
On twitter and elsewhere they have now taken to identifying...for themselves...who the henchmen are. Here's an example of a link:
They make it clear what is going to happen.
If you haven't seen it already, here is an excellent photo essay on the revolution/fight:

Yeah, definitely Turks. They are toughnuts. Theyve got the best army in the Middle East other than Israels, and the 2nd largest NATO army as well.

Do *they* have some stories to tell.
I believe this thing is outrunning the “candidates”. The many, many young people (and a lot of the older ones too) of Iran want freedom, not another puppet to tyranical Islamic rule.
I believe we could see the birth or republicanism in Iran, but it may very possibly become much more bloody before it is over. The Basij and many in the Revoultionary Guard are not likely to go quietly.
The key is, “What will the regular Army do?” And will they (say, Like Washington) be willing to take part in ending the Islamic tyranny and then hand it over to a new, true Republic?
At this point, the people may not accept anything less.
One thing is sure...it is Bush’s direct engagement, support of liberty, and policies that are driving this. Still bearing fruit. Obama is trying like crazy to spin this to his advantage, but we cannot let him lie and try and steal it. His policies would have made this impossible...just as they would have made Iraq impossible.
We might need that, a compound bow and a scoped 50BMG.
Hey kiddies, want to play thermonuclear war?
They are, more and more often now saying "Death to Khamanie".
For them, no going back from that.
Please, send my thanks to your nephew.
It is why the left is desperate to disarm us. They know that if they push too hard, that the result will be very bad for them.
I have ghreat resect for the Iranian fighting right now. I send them that message each day. I pray God's blessings on them and pray we can and will help them more.
Obama will not do so...but you can bet Bibi is not standing idly by.
may God bless him and keep him safe
World unites for democracy in Iran
He got the snot kicked out of him.
OMG I just CHEERED OUT LOUD for those amazing brave wonderful Iranian people...got goosebumps seeing that video!!! I wish I could help them...fighting for what is really important...something about 46million Americans are too fat and complacent to fight for...
I wish we could go in and help topple this regime.
