Freedom in Iran

I’ve turned green in support of Iran.  Follow the latest on Twitter, not CNN.  Follow #iranelection.

I’ve been waiting for this a long time.  I pray that this can be resolved with the least loss of life and limb as possible.

As General Abrams said at Bastogne, “They’ve got us surrounded… the poor bastards.”


  1. I think it will eventually be bloody. Hopefully not too badly. Hopefully it will be quick. And most of all, I hope the issue doesn’t disappear.

    Phelps, is your support for the green party because you believe in the ideals of the party or just support for the opposition to the current government?

  3. Phelps says:

    Opposition to the current regime and support of transparent polling.

    There aren’t any GOOD candidates as long as the mullahs control the candidates. But one of the keys to wresting control from the mullahs is keeping what little control the people have.

    I’m not even sure the incumbant didn’t actually win — but he undoubtdly cheated.

    I blogged a while back about the impending Iranian revolution. The split between the dogmatic older generation and the younger generation is coming to a head. The most fearsome thing for the current regime must be the cries of ALLAHU AKBAR from the groups supporting the other party. Best case scenario is the current Iranian regime (like the Berlin wall) comes down without our intervention.

  5. I’ve been hearing & reading reports on the ground in Iran that the current mood is very much like 1979.

    Mexi is right, without our intervention is the best.
