For many, the moment they gathered strength to say "NO" will be the peak of their life. This is no joke. This is what makes a man or woman free. Nothing else.

Most people choose to live in fear, and the word "no" doesn't exist in their verbose vocabulary.

Those poor kids, if you are to believe what people on twitter are saying then they are hoping for him to help them.

I guess they are about to learn the hard way that once you start something like this you are on your own.

Poor kids, I wish them luck, unfortunately they are on their own.

Not that I often agree with you Agit, but today is the defining day. Let's see what the people of Iran want.

It's kinda deja vu with the New Secret Police taking the role of the SAVAK, plus the cries from the rooftops. The Mullahs must love the irony of that.


Good Luck Iran, you'll need it today.

- Mousavi is leaking information that he is under heavy government pressure to announce his acceptance of the results
- 200 reported arrested in the past few hours
- foreign media has been advised all reporting allowances are revoked, any reporting done will result in jail time.

Yes, he is no saint ...


Mousavi's socialist ideology became very apparent during the 1980s when he initiated Islamic Socialist policies such as subsidized food coupons, oil coupons and converting private enterprises into government controlled entities. Mr. Mousavi ordered the mass-executions of 1980-81, as well as the summer 1988 executions of over 30,000 political prisoners, who were then buried in mass graves


but the platform he ran on is very positive and moving towards peace.

A summary on Mousavi:

en.wikipedia.org...


He has also vowed to review laws that discriminate against women in Iran if he wins the upcoming election. He has stated that he would seek to disband the so called morality police force of Iran and make sure that women in Iran are treated equally, have the ability to attain financial empowerment and highest levels of decision making bodies



Now running for the elections, Mousavi has addressed activating foreign policy to boost national interest by reducing tensions with other nations. This includes negotiating with U.S. President Barack Obama if "his actions are in keeping with his words".[18] His other notable assertions were when he called Ahmadinejad's approach to the issue of Holocaust a wrong one. Mousavi condemned the killing of Jews in the Holocaust. In response Ahmadinejad revealed Mousavi's own involvement with previous anti-Israeli movements

Hypocritical ! It is none of Americas business. The only distinction, is when election results are in question, Iranians riot, AMERICANS bitch and blog. 2000 & 2004
I wish Americans would understand that interfering in other nations internal affairs is obnoxious at best, criminal at worst. You have enough problems with your own government destroying your liberties.

'Anti-Ahmadinejad protests will die out'

By YAAKOV KATZ, AP AND JERUSALEM POST STAFF
LINK TO ORIGINAL

Without support from the United States and other Western countries, Iranian opposition groups will likely stop demonstrations against the Iranian regime and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's declared victory in Friday's presidential elections, senior Israeli defense officials said Sunday.



-----------------------------

we are supposed to be getting all fired up to demand direct US intervention,

Is this what Colin Powell was referring to in November,

when he said that 6 months into his presidency Obama would have to make some very hard decisions?

If so would that not indicate that these 'demonstrations' were in the planning stage at the time Obama was elected?

The show must go on!

No one here is advocating interfering with Iran's right to sovereignty. We are observing and commenting on publicly viewable activities in Iran.

Just as they can watch American news, and read the messages on this forum.

No one requested a lecture from you on what Americans should or should not do. Because there are problems in the US it doesn't mean it's citizens cannot look at what's happening elsewhere and express their opinions.

What country are you in, may I ask, that is so perfect it has the right to pass judgement on who has what rights?

I see a bunch of people calling for peaceful protesters, they are going to have to turn against the police and soon the army if they don't want to be slaughtered.

Tomorrow might just be the Tienanmen Square of Iran. I hope they understand it's past the time of peaceful means, they are going to have to meet force with force.

You can only kick a dog so long before it bites you.

It is just a matter of time before rocks and sticks elevates to rifles and bayonets.

It is hard to stand by and watch unarmed people get slaughtered. I REALLY hope the worlds leaders do not let that happen.

That is the truth.

I wish we could fly a few crates of AK's over there for them along with some LAW's, I think that would even the odds out pretty well.

Either was I hope they succeed, this is a world changing event. This is showing the power of a free uncontrolled internet and what happens when it is controlled.

My main problem with this all is I hope they don't put Mousavi in power because all that fighting will have been for nothing.

I figured they would have the country completely isolated by the end of the day. They are just going to have to hold tough. They are going to have to reach deep inside themselves and find out if they really want it.

I hope they really want it because their success will help change the world.
