Iran Cracks Skulls

Timothy Birdnow

Iran has smashed the steel-toed boot down, according to the Ass Press.

The AP is reporting that Iran has just acknowledged it used security forces to violently put down protests across the country. The Iranians tried to portray the protesters as rioters or foreign-funded insurgents.

Amnesty International is estimating that 208 people were killed by the Iranian military forces. An estimated 7,000 people have been arrested.

Protests have broken out since the U.S. led embargo on Iranian goods and oil has driven the price of gasoline and other oil products in Iran up beyond what most Iranians can afford. That embargo was imposed when Iran attacked a number of foreign cargo vessels and other things around the Middle East.

This is a sign of desperation on the part of the ruling Islamic regime.

1 It sure is. And the people doing the smashing have a lot in common with the smashees -- unlike in the days of riots in the 70s when the Ayatollah came to power. This means the tensions are greater, and there's more of a possibility that the smashers may possibly finally revolt against those giving the orders to smash.

The escalating costs of living are hitting the soldiers just as hard as they are hitting the rioters.

2 Yes, and we may witness a homegrown revolution for a change in Iran. It's well past time. And it would be a very good thing, as Iran has been the chief financier of all of the terrorism and turmoil in the Middle East for decades. If that stopped perhaps we would finally have a relative peace there.

3 Amen!

Or as the unbelievers say, Insh'Allah, with an apostrophe in there somewhere. I'm not quite sure if I have it in the right place, in that barbaric language. But the idea's similar.

4 If you give Moslems and Insh they'll take a mile!

5 Give me the Irish any day. They're pro-alcohol rather than anti, and they've developed some darn good stuff over the years!

6 Sorry, you said "insh," meaning "inch." I misread it -- coffee hadn't kicked in yet, I guess. And I WAS up before 5:00 AM to take my wife to the airport. Guess those are my only excuses. . .

Even though they were irrelevant, I stand by my comments about the Irish, however.

7 Well, I much prefer the Irish to the Arabs too. The Irish like to enjoy themselves; something that cannot be said of the Arabs. And they might punch you in the face but they won't chop off your head - and it'll be a fair fight, not sneaking up behind you. One thing you can say about the Irish is they fight fair.
