Posted on 12/27/2009 10:07:01 AM PST by Federalist Patriot
Here is truly amazing (and graphic) video of a crowd in Sirjan, Iran storming police to prevent the public execution of two people. The video shows the crowd storming the gallows and cutting down the bodies of two men in the process of being hanged. It shows the protesters being shot at by Iranian forces as they tried to get away with the men. The condition of the men cut down from the gallows is not clear. Reports indicate several protesters were killed in the shooting.
Gateway Pundit has much more on the dramatic incident. . . .

SHOOT BACK, SHOOT BACK... oops, wrong country...
Iranian citizens can't own a satellite dish to pick up the news - they sure can't own a gun. Totalitarians in Iran are no different than the ones here ... the difference is so far we've been able to hold them off...
Those brave people!
They need guns. Yesterday.
I was a high school kid in 1979 and was shouting “Bomb Iran!” with the rest of my classmates, but ...
30 years of living and learning make me understand then and now a little better.
God bless these brave people for standing up.
I only hope that I’m as brave if/when I’m called upon.
How sad for these brave people, that video made me ill. God bless America and may 2010 be a new beginning.
I wonder how recent this was. Iran is crumbling before our eyes. I wish the North Koreans and Cubans would rise up in like manners.
Serbs would give them weapons. So would the Israelis, I would imagine.
That’s courage. These people will not be defeated. They want freedom. You cannot defeat that thirst.
All I can say is WOW.
Anyone know why they were being hanged or whether this was related to the pro-democracy uprising as opposed to some local brouhaha or Sunni-Shiite intramural affair?
“Serbs would give them weapons. So would the Israelis, I would imagine.”
I doubt the Israelis are stupid enough to start arming an unknown quantity formed out of a nation that has historically hated them.
This is an amazing video, and shows incredible bravery...but lets face it, blowing yourself is also an act of personal bravery, contemptible as the desired results may be. And Islam has no shortage of people being willing to blow themselves up. This hardly makes them the second coming of the Continental Army.
A lot of people seem to be hoping that George Washington is right now crossing the Rubicon in Iran...the reality is that the revolutionaries are probably as bad or worse than the current government.
A revolution whose goals are true individual liberty, like our American revolution, is very rare. Our Founding Fathers wanted to be free. They didn’t want to dominate us. They didn’t feel oppressed by their own citizens, and wish to conduct reprisals. Most Brit sympathizers left after the war...they weren’t persecuted...I predict in this revolution, they will be “correcting” past evils for decades. For a leader who truly loves and understand freedom to spring up in Iran is about as likely as a rose spontaneously growing in your cat litter box.
Man...there is one heck of a mistake in there. I don’t want to point it out because I’d probably get banned. Lets just say that I really, really needed to add the word “up” to a sentence. Of course, what I accidentally described would be an incredible act of bravery in my own personal circumstances, since I’d have to break my own spine and ribs to do so.
Sorry about that...geez. Freudian slip or what.
I’ve seen pictures...didn’t know it was you...never tried it myself...
And Obama...he lay low. This sorry ass excuse for an American President makes my blood boil. OBAMA SUCKS!
Yeah, some people get as much gratification from just viewing it in a voyeuristic fashion as they do from actually performing the act, so good for you. It is good to expand your personal horizons, or in your case...maintain the borders of what you already have. I bet your cache is very interesting.
Actually it was a grainy B&W photo I saw back in 1965. Frankly, I didn’t know for sure what was going on...
