One line statement as this is breaking news:
This is a reliable website that confirms this in Farsi, I had this translated to English by an Iranian I trust.
Also many sources on twitter (#Iranelection, #Tehran) state tanks going into Tehran supporting the regime. And more importantly no sources on twitter
state that these are false reports. False reports have many stating that.
Many on twitter sources say they personally confirm this - that basij and tanks are everywhere in Tehran, breaking into people's homes, killing them
in their homes and those on the street.
This is frightening to hear this going on during the night there. There is a march towards central Tehran, and in my opinion tanks are likely sent to
stop that. And it's the middle of the night as well. Incredible!
Tomorrow the opposition urge all Iranian's to go on strike.
If the oil workers strike in the South West where all the oil is, then that shuts down the regimes supply of finances. Protests in the town of Abadan
nearby are encouraging signs.
If the world boycotts Iranian oil that would also give the same result. Although Russia and China are main buyers so impossible to cripple the regime
Same with the UN - Russia, China will veto a resolution.
Things getting out of hand, hope Obama has a hidden tough backbone. We expected the regime to hold a last ditch stand to attempt to gain back
control. Unfortunately this is only leading to more bloodshed.
Hospitals still dangerous and basij killing injured patients who go there. European embassies still taking in patients. How long before the regime
shuts these down and even closes airports? In my opinion could be in the next few hours.
That would mean nowhere for injured people to go. They are being forced into revolution.
It may be time for Brown to get a backbone and plan something with Israel to take out this regime sooner rather than later before 1000's or millions
die. 100's were killed today, surely that's enough!
Does Obama have the guts to do something about this!
