Thanks Tristar. Looks like this revolution might stand a chance then. If the people still have arms there is still hope!

I am sitting in AWE that this event seems to have taken so little notice in the U.S.

WHY is this not being covered in my countries media? I am watching debate about Sarah Palin and a television celebrity interviewer on ABC?

I am MAD that this is not being televised!

BBC has reporters INSIDE Iran in the streets covering this protest LIVE! Look at this other link on ATS. Watch the video there! Why is this not making HEADLINE news in my country?

Why am I watching Larry King interview west coast choppers right now!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Is my country drugged into not caring? Do people really not care about this?

Is the media in the U.S. purposefully ignoring what is going on over there?

Truly sad when, in a supposedly 'open' and 'democratic' election, such as we've witnessed in Iran this weekend, the loser of the election is ARRESTED!

I wish there were something that I could do, to make things better for those poor folks living over there. I really do. Hurts me to feel so helpless !

And, in answer to the previous post, Yes--But.

Technically, one may possess a pistol, but refer to the first word in this sentence. (My information is that gun ownership in Iran as of 2007 is approximately 5.3 per 100.) Canada-31 per 100. USA-90 per 100.

Ill help you out here, since that nation has been in constant wars almost all houses or those who were active in the early 80's have in their possession an AK or other small arms. Similar as to the citizens in Crete, were you can find any semi and full auto right up to a 50 caliber in homes.

edit: To have in your possession a weapon of your choice is no big deal, its when you use it you need to make sure you are within the guidelines put forward by religion and law or you will find yourself in the city center square hanging by a rope.

this couldn't be further from the truth.. legal gun ownership in iran is non existent. if you are found in possession of a gun it usually carries a hefty prison sentence or certain cases executed-of course to be made an example of.

The election was fixed, much like American presidential elections have been (no surprise) .. If the youth of Iran truly believed in what they stood for, they would not rest until the change was made.

Unfortunately the same could have been said for America's youth, and they showed which side of Propaganda they stood for, so I hold little hope for Iran.

The "reformist" candidate Mousavi was responsible, and bragged about it, for the massacre of thousands, during the revolution. Although he was preaching a change for a Iranians, I have doubts about whether or not he was telling the truth. That being said, Khomeni(sp?) warned him to stop inciting violence. Looks like someone stuck to thier word. I really hope that this WAS an honest vote by the people in Iran, but somehow I doubt it.

The arrest of Moussavi ; only adds fuel to the obvious manipulation of the elections...

This is the 3rd time I'm repeating this. Is there any actual proof of this 'manipulation'. I for one haven't seen any. Just even a tiny bit of actual evidence would be nice before you go around claiming faul play.

Just look at the economy of Iran, Ahmadinejad has brought the economy to a standstill I havent seen pro ahmadenijad protest but i did saw a lot of pro mousavi protest prior to the elections...Whatever the manipulation is, this should be the key moment for western intellegence to capitalize on these demonstrations and bring a revolution or coup...

You will see very little coverage of dissent in the US, wouldnt want the people to get any ideas now would we? Remember there was hardly no coverage of Icelands collapse.
I saw one clip from Iran with protesters calling for freedom, "We want freedom" chant going on. I hope they can get it the whole world deserves freedom,just remember though the best slave is one who doesnt know he is a slave. You cant trust freedom when its not in your hand,everybodys fighting for the promised land.

In regards to the original post...I have had CNN on all morning and there has been no report of the losing candidate being arrested.

There was just a live report about the protests, election in general, and US opinion, and no report of an arrest.

Be careful before you post a rumor from a questionable source. Not saying that CNN is the final word, but I feel that the arrest would have made the news.
