This is great news, good on 'em. It's refreshing to see people who aren't afraid of speaking out. If you do this in America, you'd probably be labeled a terrorist.

What I don't understand is the police. Sure, it's their job to try and keep things in order but c'mon. If I was a cop and was faced with tens of thousands of angry protectors that shared my view, I'd drop my shield and bat and join with them.

Let's see, I'm a cop who should I protect and serve? The corrupt government, or the people? Well since I'm part of the people the government can kiss my ass.

I'm Australian and I'm shocked at how our police force handles protests like these. The cops don't give a #. They will band together and bash anyone who doesn't obey their orders. The police have been brainwashed to the point they will attack their own people. It's sad.

I hope the Iranians get what they want in the end.

Ahmadinejad was just asked during a press conference by CNN reporter Christiane Amanpour if he could guarantee the safety of his rival Mousavi. Ahmadinejad made a referance to an unruly soccer fan needs to be "given a ticket" if he breaks the law after a soccer match.

Amanpour repeated the question and asked if Mousavi and his supporters were being detained or under house arrest or in jail and Ahmadinejad said that the law and rules of Iran need to be enforced and people who break the law need to be punished.

Notice how their protests did NOT involve torching cars or trashing stores or random acts of senseless violence?

The benefits of a homogenius society.

This is what brave people do.
When the election is a sham, and a curropt man comes to power, you must take a stand, instead of cower and make excuses.

The people that are captured by the plain clothes secret police, either dissapear or are murdered.

At best, they will break your arms with there bats then leave you in the street.

To think, when this is a known concept the people still riot in the streets.

Amazing how different the west is to the east.

Its obvious, the Ayatollah has big plans for Iran and Ahmadinejad. Any election result liek this is the work of the Ayatollahs.
No political talk or recommednations will matter. Ahmadinejad is here to stay!

You notice the only people in the world that never got pissed of witha bad election where the americans. Does that not tell you americans something wrong is happening to your people.

Personally i think irans leaders made the right decision, and in many ways it effects alot of us in this world.

I agree with you that American society has lost its backbone.
Clearly, the Iranians in the face of death and torture are willing to riot over a false election.,
Where as the Americans in the face of a spilt latte and delay in their baseball bend over and allow the criminals to steal the election.

But, I do not agree with the Ayatollah's.
I think they underestimate the will of the Iranian people for 1, but its clear they are backing Ahmadinejad and his conflict with Israel.

I fear this is the last sign Israel need, before they start the bombs.
Its clear the Iranian leaders are committed to a conflict with Israel

I think you two are downplaying americans role in this.

If iran had taken covert actions to change american policy and bring in a differnet leader, would you let it happen?

We have to realistic here, america likes messing with that country.

This is why i see what the iranian leaders did was fair play. Just look at the russian satelitte countries.

This reminds me of playing Civilization. When you change government, you get so many 'turns' of civil unrest. This is what happens when governments change. If they can weather it out, they'll be fine. This is a very normal (albeit sad) side-effect of a nation whose policies so drastically change. There will be dissent, claims of 'cheating,' and more.

10:02 AM ET -- Tossing away the notebook. New York Times columnist Roger Cohen has a powerful report from Tehran:

She was in tears like many women on the streets of Iran's battered capital. "Throw away your pen and paper and come to our aid," she said, pointing to my notebook. "There is no freedom here."


And she was gone, away through the milling crowds near the locked-down Interior Ministry spewing its pick-ups full of black-clad riot police. The "green wave" of Iran's pre-election euphoria had turned black. [...]

Majir Mirpour grabbed me. A purple bruise disfigured his arm. He raised his shirt to show a red wound across his back. "They beat me like a pig," he said, breathless. "They beat me as I tried to help a woman in tears. I don't care about the physical pain. It's the pain in my heart that hurts."

He looked at me and the rage in his eyes made me want to toss away my notebook.

I thought that video was amazing. Amid all the rioting the people see the cop for what he is and helps him. I was really glad to see that. I so wish this election had gone to the rightful winner. This is a major turning point.

I think the people of Iran are amazing people, the last thing they want is a war. They do not want a "shock and awe" like Iraq faced.

Using this logic, we should let all oppresive regimes flourish and feel protected even if not chosen by the majority of their people.

Info straight from the BBC on Satellite Jamming coming from inside of Iran.




BBC audiences in Iran, the Middle East and Europe may be experiencing disruption to their BBC TV or radio services today. That is because there is heavy electronic jamming of one of the satellites the BBC uses in the Middle East to broadcast the BBC Persian TV signal to Iran. Satellite technicians have traced that interference and it is coming from Iran. There has been intermittent interference from Iran since Friday but this is the heaviest yet.

It seems to be part of a pattern of behaviour by the Iranian authorities to limit the reporting of the aftermath of the disputed election. In Tehran John Simpson and his cameraman were briefly arrested after they had filmed the material for this piece.
And at least one news agency in Tehran has come under pressure not to distribute internationally any pictures it might have of demonstrations on the streets in Iran.

However, the availability of witness material from Iran is enabling international news organisations to be able to report the story. Viewers of BBC Persian TV have been in touch (in Farsi) sending videos, stills and providing personal accounts.

It is important that what is happening in Iran is reported to the world, but it is even more vital that citizens in Iran know what is happening. That is the role of the recently launched BBC Persian TV which is fulfilling a crucial role in being a free and impartial
source of information for many Iranians. Any attempt to block this channel is wrong and against international treaties on satellite communication. Whoever is attempting the blocking should stop it now.

Gonna have to pull a "They Live" and put on the sunglasses and track dat signal down!

Can't we drop something on the jammer? Maybe even just a small something?

Well, you could be more right than wrong. Imagine for a moment if Obama where the Anti-Christ. His words would carry much power.

I am on the fence when it comes to religion since I just do not get why "God" would be so invisible to his creations and play games with us. However Obama is certainly accomplishing much of what is written about the Anti;Christ.
