The Iranians know all about warfare in urban environments, they were quite successful against US forces in Iraq.
Give it a rest Rogue only you can turn a peoples struggle into your persoanl soap box to voice your Anti-American stance. This isn't about you or your twisted view of the US!
It's about the people struggling for their rights.

Tens of thousands of Iranians on Tuesday gathered in a central Tehran square, in an apparent show of support for re-elected President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The supporters met at Valli-Asr Square, but the Iranian president was not among them as he is on a visit to Russia to take part in the Shanghai Cooperation Council summit.
BBC Caught In Mass Public Deception With Iran Propaganda
The BBC has again been caught engaging in mass public deception by using photographs of pro-Ahmadinejad rallies in Iran and claiming they represent anti-government protests in favor of Hossein Mousavi.
An image used by the L.A. Times on the front page of its website Tuesday showed Iranian President Ahmadinejad waving to a crowd of supporters at a public event.
In a story covering the election protests yesterday, the BBC News website used a closer shot of the same scene, but with Ahmadinejad cut out of the frame. The caption under the photograph read, 'Supporters of Mir Hossein Mousavi again defied a ban on protests'.
The BBC photograph is clearly a similar shot of the same pro-Ahmadinejad rally featured in the L.A. Times image, yet the caption erroneously claims it represents anti-Ahmadinejad protesters.
It added, "Doubtless you have hoisted the Iranian nation's flag of glory and awareness before the arrogant powers. National accord, unity and esteem, are of paramount significance to national interests ... unconditional exercise of justice, reciprocal nation-government trust and collective determination aimed at resolving obstacles to the country's progress are all public demands that were crystallized in your constructive comments."

I believe we should stay out, but shouldn't the Obamassiah at least issue some sort of official statement?
"I think the president has handled this well. Anything that the United States says that puts us totally behind one of the contenders, behind Moussavi, would be a handicap for that person"

Yer! it's none of our business! If the Iranians want a new government then they will have to fight for it them selves! But I wish them the best of luck
h right! As if the US and UK forced people into the streets to burn stuff. Give me a break. This only shows how delusional these people are. I mean they pretty much shut down all forms of communications so how exactly did the US and UK ferment this? What they really need to do is grow up and look at themselves and stop blaming everybody else for their own issues.
Thanks for the links and info john.I will keep an eye on the news services till daybreak and report back to thread of anything signifigant.

Check out twitter for updates, although not everything there is true. It won't be reported in western media until later in the day I presume. We don't have anyone there to report it, and even then it will be people on the ground videoing it with their mobile phones and uploading to youtube if they can get online. I don't know how they manage it.
Twitter did confirm the tanks by several users and said they'd seen them personally, but that was 5 hrs ago. And since then it has been said to be unconfirmed and then confirmed on and off.
Although the Farsi source in the header still remains saying tanks placed into Tehran.
