#2 The Iranian people will need to properly organize and meet violence with violence. I don't know if anyone here has seen the video of the young women murdered (shot through the heart) by a Basij bastard. But it is absolutely heart wrenching.

Someone needs to teach these people how to conduct small group ambushes against these small groups of Basij. They could swarm them and overwhelm them using the right tactics. Some shivs and truncheons could be useful too.

#3 To the people of Iran, I offer these words from our William Shakespeare:

"And gentlemen in England now-a-bed Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here, And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day."

To the Dictators of Iran. Your day has come and gone. Despite all your hard work and mayhem over the past 30 years, your dream to return to the 11th century has been undone by something with the unlikely name of "twitter". Not much of a revolution if it cant withstand something named "twitter" eh? You frauds, you cancer on the ass of humanity, go. Its over.

To the people of Iran, I say fight, and fight like your very lives depends on it. This is your last chance to live as free people as something besides cattle for the mullahs. For once the Mullahs have the bomb, there will be no more street protests no opportunities to speak out against your oppression.

Now is the time. Seize the future.

#5 GB of USMC -- I've stayed away from watching this video, but tonight, I needed to see it.... I needed to see the "face of revolution."

We here in the States, can't know of the fear, yet the strength the Iranians are showing in their quest for freedom. But this video, brings it to us, face to face......

#6 Same here Sherry - I watched that Vid because I had to see it.

Any way we can Juxtaposition that on a vid of what Zero was doing - eating Ice Cream? Bastard can't make a statement because he doesn't know which side is going to win yet and there isn't a victory to claim yet.

#7 I thought it was all over yesterday but apparently I was wrong. Iranians are very brave.

Here's hoping that if their revolution is a success they can figure out what to do with it and not be misled by another dictatorial charlatan. That part could well be even more difficult than what they're doing now.

#8 Take a good long look, folks. If Obambi has his way, we'll be in the same place the Iranians are today. Unfortunately for our "president", there are several million of us out here that know how to fight, and I don't think the US military would hold still for a dictatorship. Still, there is more than a minimum possibility of our current "government" ignoring that, and pushing the "one man, one vote, one time" meme upon us.

#9 The truly sad thing is the bulk of the demonstrators seem to want freedom and self-choice but their rallying point/figurehead is as bad as the ones in power. Regime change will probably end up as a change in name only. In the meantime, unless the military stands with the demonstrators, perhaps more to get out from the heel of the Revolutionary Guards than any true support, there will be a period of massive repression - These citizens are not armed from what I can see and that's what it will take to break the ayatollahs' grip.

#11 Freedom is not cheap but freedom is always worth the cost.

#12 May I suggest, having the Army open an arms warehouse, Fit every pistol in it with a box of similar ammo and a small green parachute, then airdropping these over tehran for the citizen's use?

#14 Their candidate is riding the tiger right now. I doubt he can put a cork in this freedom any more than Boris Yeltsin did. Iran needs a "Boris Yeltsin" moment - someone to pivot things to where the current regime is stopped and something new emerges.

#15 More like a Gorbachev moment... Gorbie didn't want regime change but the bus went that way carrying him along with it.
