The following are the tweets from Nick Kristof. I had heard that the spread of revolution had reached the tiny island, but the news has been overwhelmed by Egypt and now seemingly Iran.

I just arrived Bahrain. Big protests, 2 dead, roads closed (had to walk to my hotel), internet turned v slow

#Bahrain police kill a man this morning at a funeral for someone killed yesterday. Looking wobbly?

At least 2 people died in the #Bahrain protests yesterday. Riot police very heavy handed, didn't learn from #Egypt.

evanchill Bahrain teargasses a funeral procession, reportedly passing near a hospital as well.

I was watching some videos of protests in Bahrain last night. Pretty interesting developments.

The police there were cracking down pretty hard on the protesters.

Just go to youtube and type in something with those keywords in it. There are tons of videos under Bahrain protests, many of them appear to be fairly recent.

you have been fed with wrong information

no revolution is taking place in iran.

the people of iran had a revolution 30 years ago.

revolution is not like some kind of candy that you go and buy one from the grocery store whenever you want

we (iranian) made a revolution to cut the hands of the people taking out our oil and giving us candy

with respect.

The question is can we expect to see more revolution in the near future. There is obvously no revolution occuring currently.

Here is one video of the protests in Iran:

youtube desciption:

Iranian police have confirmed that one person was killed during clashes between security forces and protesters. Police Commander General Ahmad Reza Radan says dozens of people, including nine members of the security forces, also were wounded in Monday's protests. Radan said one of the injured is in critical condition. He also said several people were arrested, but did not say how many. Clashes between Iranian police and tens of thousands of protesters broke out in central Tehran on Monday as opposition supporters tried to evoke the spirit of Egypt's recent popular uprising.

There are a number of countries in the middle east following suit right now after Tunisia and Egypt. I dont think that any will have the 'success' that Egypt has seen, because in places like Iran, the government will have no qualms whatsoever about using military force to quash the protesters with a barrage of automatic weapons fire.....

But it is certainly something to keep an eye on...

i agree that every one has the right to protest and show that in the streets

but the people in iran protesting don't have a clear purpose and they are just some follower

think about this : Iran had revolution about 30 years ago and people where somehow blind but they had a single

purpose.that resulted in a revolution. after that people came to think about what they have down. most of them

understood that they were just prostesters and followers. they knew the probleams but didn't know exactly how

to solve the problems. and as we are next generation we respect the exprience and we think about ' problem

solving methods ' and most of us protest the protestors and some dday you will see the results of our protest.

i think you understand now what i am saying.
