Revolution in Tehran

Protestors are closing in on Azadi Square in Tehran. The question is, will the revolution or counter revolution or counter counter revolution spread to Iran with all its forces of repression & control upon its citizens? It seemed unlikely because of the failure of the demos in 2009 in the anti Ahmadinejad demos after the apparently fraudulent elections. The protestors emboldened by the success of the Egyptians & the Tunisians are trying again. One can only hope that the régime doesn’t turn the tanks and / or the guns on them. I wish them luck. I just hope that no deaths result from the protests.

Revolution seems to be spreading across the region. One can only hope that the present régimes aren’t replaced by something worse.
