Thank you both for finding some common ground... Proto, I think your points are interesting... I believe they need some honing though and that they would be perfect for a thread dedicated to the "Forces behind the Iranian situation" or something of that kind. Believe me, I'd be one of the first to post on it, as I'd like to discuss that...

Had this been the Israelis facing a similiar demonstration by Palestinians protesting for their rights they would have used live ammunition and air strikes!

Part of Disinformation Campaign. Planned event. People there just want to solve long term economy crisis, feed their children, who really cares there about who the leader is? Enough food is what wins. Game, politicians up there just like playing games...

Remember the respect we all share now for these Iranian people when our U.S. Government & Israel tell us we need to go to war with them.
Remember them fighting for their freedom when our bombs drop on those same streets and homes.
why we care i dont know. Maybe its because its the only thing thats on. I am sorry for what is going on in iran but why does all the media need to brodcast it. I live in the states and its all day everyday.. there are more inportant things going on right now than this...
...People dont want to be bothered by sorry! BS. Wake up people this is distracting you.
(CNN) -- A photo showing Iranian clerics prominently participating in an anti-government protest speaks volumes about the new face of Iran's opposition movement.
In a blatant act of defiance, a group of Mullahs took to the streets of Tehran, to protest election results that returned incumbent President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to power.
Whether these clerics voted for Ahmadinejad or one of the opposition candidates is unknown. What is important here, is the decision to march against the will of Iran's supreme leader who called the results final and declared demonstrations illegal.
