A commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards has been arrested for refusing to obey Iran's Supreme Leader, according to reports from the Balatarin.
General Ali Fazli, who was recently appointed as a commander of the Revolutionary Guards in the province of Tehran, is reported to have been arrested after he refused to carry out orders from the Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei to use force on people protesting the controversial re-election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Fazli, a veteran of the devastating Iran-Iraq war is also believed to have been sacked and taken to an unknown location.
The Revolutionary Guards is a separate body to the mainstream armed forces in Iran and is seen as one of the main and most powerful bodies responsible for protecting the Islamic theocratic regime.

I’m thinking he meant The Acorn Guard of AmeriCorps.
The heck with my eyes; My THOUGHTS..............UGH! Now I'll have to wash my brain with Lysol!
Did you have to do that!
ACK! Gak! Deee-skusting! Geeez!
Check out Oath Keepers.
Every Patriotic movement has their Nathan Hale or Jean Paul Marat who believe in the movement and give their life for it.
Maybe his sons or daughters are in those crowds. Maybe he has a soul. Who knows, we surely won’t. Let’s hope and pray that more of the ranking officers will turn over the keys to the armories.
Reminds me of a rather more secretive group called “The Resister” that was active in the Clinton years.
How can it be "what many in the country see as a rigged election" when they admitted that there were more votes cast in 11 cities than they had voters.
Sounds like it is a proven fact.
Except we have guns. I was pointing out that fact to my kids today. If police fired randomly into a crowd in the US, there would be return fire.
We retain guns not to defend against invaders, but to protect us from a tyrannical government.
Somehow, I missed that first time through the thread ... and then you just had to call attention to it.
Where's the eyewash station? Why do I have this powerful urge to gouge my eyes out?
My, how things have changed in just 7 years. That cartoon needs updating. I can see Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Kennedy, Schumer, Durbin, Wright, ACORN, et. al. placing dynamite sticks in the Liberty Bell’s crack intending to blow it to smithereens.

ROFL at your tagline.
Oath Keepers are not “secret” or in hiding.

It fits: the present situation is much more serious than the '90s.
We must never forget, and we must teach everyone, this truism:
The only reason that anyone would seek to disarm the citizenry is if they intend to do something to them that they wouldn’t allow if they had the means to resist.
Is that “fat lady” about to sing?
Don't know about that, but a crack is beginning to show.
