Let me make sure I understand you here. For years you have ridiculed and attacked my country for it's intervention in Iraq, yet now you attack my country for NOT intervening in Iran?

I don't think it is is the US (or Israel's) best interest to get involved in any overt manner. Any action taken by outside forces against Iran will cause the Iranian people to pull together behind their government. The best thing for those hoping for a change in direction for Iran can do now is let this all unfold organically.
We have known for quite some time that there was a sizable group of Iranian citizens who favored a move toward democracy. We are now seeing tangible proof of that.

Apparently the shots are starting to be fired according to Twitter that is, but BBC may have backed this up.

Congrats to these people! The people of Iran are great people. I hope they can reign in their government.
The Iran–Iraq War was extremely costly in lives and material, one of the deadliest wars since World War II. Both countries were devastated by the war's effect. It cost Iran an estimated 1 million casualties, killed or wounded, and Iranians continue to suffer and die as a consequence of Iraq's use of chemical weapons. Iraqi casualties are estimated at 250,000-500,000 killed or wounded. Thousands of civilians died on both sides from air raids and missiles.
