Good for the people. Wish us Canadians would stand up to our joke of a government.

If the cops just let people have their peaceful protests in the first place we wouldn't have this situation. Even then, considering all the people that have been killed by the basij and paramilitia in the streets since the elections,, I think the people are treating them very nicely in this vid..

You can UNDERSTAND? Understand what? Running over protesters in the streets? and btw those aren't "cops" running over the people.. They are Revolutionary guards, paramalitia (basij),, and lebanese hezbollah shipped into Iran to crush dissent. Same people that engineer and carry terrorist attacks all around the world. The protesters in Iran are doing all of you a huge favor by standing up to these thugs.

Not sure what took place in last 30 years.. (too many things to keep up) I was told that Iran was okay country before the revolution. It was more western and some King ruled during that time. I am not quite sure what led to a downfall.

ya i wonder when the USA is going to go Free those people too. I wouldn't be surprised if CIA or Israeli operatives have infilitrated the reformists and pushing for these protests.


Dont believe all you see on tv......Here is something staged and proven...




Media in the US is "controlled" to say the least!

Its ending is pure BS IMO, Iran needs to take responsibility as well, not just leave it in the hands of the US. Look at how they are acting now regarding there Nuclear Program. For all our sakes, a nuclear Iran is simply not a good idea.

IF you want a good account of events, read All the Shah's Men, great book about the events in the 1950s up to the revolution in the 70s.

I am Iranian and would love to see nothing more then the f*cking regime there all get wiped off the face of the earth.
Sorry, had to vent.

Yes they had a major role, but you can't simply take the blame away from the Iranians also, they supported the movement, and then things got worse and worse.

The Shah was pretty much a dictator too, but at least ppl had liberties that they could only dream of now.
Back in the 60s and 70s, you could not tell Tehran apart from LA or London, well that at least what my folks say.
