LOOKS LIKE IRAN IS CHOOSING TO TIANANMEN OPTION
 
Watching a lot of videos of Basijis opening fire and rounding people up in the cover of darkness.

Got a bad feeling a lot of Iranians are going to disappear tonight...

One of the most disturbing, haunting videos I've ever seen.

EXTREMELY GRAPHIC.

So very, very, sad.

It's no surprise that Iran chose this route, it's disgusting.

These are the people that certain politicians think we can "talk" to...

Too bad the Iranians don't have the second amendment...some of these thugs might think twice about what they're doing...

THAT made me cry. Poor girl. This is what happens when the govt has guns and the people don't. ( I don't know if they're banned, I just don't see any in some of the pictures.)

I've said in the past that if we leave Iran alone, eventually they'll be an ally of ours. They're not nearly as backwards as much of the rest of that region. Maybe this will be the first step in that direction, where the people take control back from the nutjobs.

Government should fear the citizenry, not the other way around.

Yup! I agree. But remember we went through this with the British.

Too bad we don't have pictures of our ally Mubarek doing the same thing during his election.

Their government does fear the citizenry. That's why they're killing them.

They obviously don't fear the citizenry enough. If they did, they wouldn't be conducting obviously fraudulent elections.

Yes, yes that is true. But perhaps they'd be in more fear if they were armed.
That does it for me.

Exactly. If I'm holding a machine gun, and you're holding a flag, I'm not going to tremble in fear of you, especially if I know that those enforcing the law have my back.
