Haven't seen this being discussed in any other thread, but this is important and could mean a change is about to take place in Iran...
BBC - Protests begin in Iran
There are a few things to remember here...
The current regime came to power after a revolution. Therefore, many in the country remember that hope and time of euphoria.
The last attempt by the Iranian people to begin protests didn't last, because public opinion was not on their side. There were simply not enough
people willing to join the protest and beat the aggressive regime back. If there had been they would have overthrown their government by now, or would
be on their way to doing it like they are right now in Syria.
Right now, millions of people across Iran are struggling in severe economic collapse. Regardless of the cause, the people are enraged by what they see
as their corrupt leadership destroying their economy.
These are Iranians fighting against their own leadership, this is how it should be, and the people are more likely to create the revolution they tried
to create last time now that the majority are in agreement. They are all experiencing this economic collapse, and the majority are going to be willing
to try to change things through the removal of their dictator.
As you'll see from the article linked, hospital staff are reporting increases in prices for urgent supplies by up to 70% every day! The government is
blocking satellite broadcasting to prevent the spread of the news around the country, which would kick off similar protests.
I think we'll see in the coming days that Iran is in a state of revolution. Lets just hope that it's fast, not too messy, and that they can replace
the leadership they have with one more friendly and cooperative with the international community.
I really hope that Israel doesn't try to take advantage of this situation.
