Place : College bridge , Enghelab St. , Tehran , Iran
Commentary from Atlas reader Clusterbuster:
Iranian militia forces are being beaten in the streets of Tehran, Qom, Bobol, Mashhad & other cities by anti government protesters. Protesters continue to fight back even though reports that many of them have been killed in street battles.
This may be a turning point for the people. Let's just pray that another radical does not fill a power vacuum. It's completely inexcusable that the current impotent administration run by the rudderless socialist freak show does not support the protesters. After all this is the regime that funneled arms, advisers, and support to the groups including Al Qaeda which resulted in our troops in Iraq being killed & wounded, continues to work towards acquiring nuclear weapons and within the last couple of weeks invaded Iraq to attempt to take over an oilfield within Iraq's border.
Here's a little inside from a professor who is an Iranian national that I spoke to after the fraudulent election of Ahmadinejad. The Iranian elitist professor told me that Ahmadinejad won because the old people in Iran saw that many young people had come out to vote for Mousavi and that their votes for Ahmadinejad helped him win. This is utter nonsense, which one could no doubt expect from an elitist professorial type who likely has relatives within or on the fringes of the current power base.
Who in their right mind does not understand that the tyrannical regime does not recognize the election process, individual rights, due process, ……………?
Basij two up on bike, but not for long. (hat tip Kasper)
Basiji cornered, protester shot dead?
Iran police drive over child during protests FTO blog hat tip Shoshanna
– Police drove over a child in Tehran during today's protests. A white
van was seen driving into the crowds, without slowing down the van hit a child whom died upon impact. The police drove away after the incident.
The child was last seen carried away by other protesters, whether they are family or not we dont know.
This video is a bit graphic so dont look if you dont have to but it
shows the evidence of the boy being carried away after being driven
Twitter updates: Some 600 were arrested during yesterday's protests & were transferred to Evin prison
Haleh Sahabi (Ezatolah Sahabi's daughter) was arrested this morning by gov't agents. Morteza Haji arrested. Omid Montazeri arrested. Ghorban Behzadiyannejad arrested. Emadodin Baghi arrested.

UPDATE: 10:00 am: Hilary Clinton was asked if the protests this
summer following Iran's rigged election had "changed the
Administration's calculation" in attempting to engage the regime. Her answer:
"Well, no, but there's a lot of ongoing instability and jockeying for
power. But that's up to the Iranians, so what we are doing is dealing
with the people who hold the power now." Maybe another bloody regime
crackdown will make a difference. Or maybe the Obama administration
will send John Kerry to meet with A'jad while his thugs hang people in
the streets (more here)
It bears noting that Obama was too late to this party. Once again, he miscalculates and fumbles. It's difficult to fathom the lost opportunity presented here. The bloodthirsty power-mad mullahs could not get their demonic paws on nuclear weapons (word is they were developing a hydrogen bomb as well). We could have been the white knight. We are in the Middle East. We could have provided the people's movement with support and arms and taken out Iran's nukes.
Instead, Obama stood by and watched people being slaughtered while he gave his limp-wristed but tacit support to Ahmadinejad, giving his goose stepping nazis carte blanche to murder with impunity.
We should have a horse in this race. We should be backing the good guys. There is no telling what killer will grab hold of the reins now.
In 24 hours, what has been
labeled “street protesting” for new presidential elections has morphed
into an earnest and violent revolution to overthrow the Muslim mullahs
who rule Iran.
It is difficult to verify, but factions in the
Iranian military may be breaking rank to join the people’s cause. A
group calling itself the National Iranian Armed Resistance Forces
(NIRU) posted a news release on an Iranian protest website at the end of the day’s violence.We,
a number of Officers, Soldiers and personnel of the Armed Forces of the
Islamic Republic of Iran, hereby declare our readiness for rise to the
armed defense of our nation against the forces of the criminal,
illegitimate, transgressing and occupying current Government of Iran,
and hereby inform our brothers and sisters serving with the armed
security forces of Iran, invite them to join us, request their support
and ask them to provide cover for us in this moral & national act.
A special request for support & cooperation goes to our brothers of
the Military Police.
NIRU says it intends to secure Iranian radio and television stations,
the Parliament,and the courts, will hold local elections and
referendums within 3 months and new presidential elections within 9
months, will dissolve the murderous “Basij” plainclothes police and
establish a new national police force.
Protection and firepower
from even a few factions of the military could signal a critical
momentum change for the Iranian people, who by law cannot own weapons.
Please see yesterday's coverage of Iran's bloodiest day yet.
