Tear gas and Twitter: Iranians take their protests online


www.cnn.com

Iranian protesters have found a new outlet to mobilize and take action. The presidential election has proved how much opposition supporters can demand change without necessarily taking to the streets. Just give them a computer and an Internet connection and watch what they can do.

What better way to stave off actual protesting than to cater to lazy Americans and let them protest from the comfort of their own home? I know this Iran, but it may just be a testing ground for this "Twitter".

If this craze can stave off fighting and bombing in Iran, then can it not make lazy American protesting completely harmless?

Uh.. what? Did you turn a story about Iranian people describing violent protesting in Iran to the rest of the world into an American bashing? I don't get it.

Not that you had noticed, but some of those "lazy" Iranian "American's" where in the street's of California ALL WEEKEND protesting. They where doing so and calling for help from the government here and in Iran to get their votes counted, make their voice's heard etc.
There is nothing lazy about what is going on. It can turn into a very big problem for the Iranian Government and the people there. Derailing the problems they are having by bringing a post like this isn't helping them at all.

I just see it as CIA. I knew this was going to happen before it happend, why? CIA. So exactly why should I care that all these people are protesting when the CIA paid and planned for this to happen? Move on nothing to see here, ill be happy when CIACNN stops talking about it.
