They aren't controlled by the government. There are no state-run media sources in the US.
God save me from "american democracy", you don't know what neoliberalism means. Before the "orange revolution" we had free education now we must pay for it, government social subsidies, now we don't have it. And pro western elites are more rich every day. Whole western capitalist economy is one big bubble lie, they are feeding with 3rd world countries.
European people are raising for socialisam they want to get rid of american capitalism and you want to go there? It's insane.
Then from when? I cannot find this exact video before today.

No, they are runned by capitalist elites. Do you think that this elites give a shit about democracy? They never attack Saudi Arabia because they have big buissiness with their oil...
This elites have other interests than american people, they are shadow governments of USA.

Mousavi Facebook - Google translated
Mousavi calls for strike if he is arrested
Please excuse the rough google...
"Mir-Hossein Mousavi sent last credible fear other people do not escape special unit and Sattarkhan Saadatabad. Mir-Hossein Mousavi Jyhvn the street among the people declared: "I've Ghsl testimony, if I arrested the strike and all work Nrvyd"
Yeah, getting a similar message "not available in your country." Probably why I couldn't find the earlier instance, then.
thx for the correction.
Back to current stuff...

Twitters asking if they can bring media (video/pic) storage devices to Embassies.
Mousavi was in the middle of demonstrants in Iran and he said he is ready to become martyr(get killed in people way and become martyr in the people's way- persian expression) ...
Not a bad idea - don't they have diplomatic immunity? (if that still counts for anything) Question is if they can get through the media blockades though.
no we can change from socialist improvement to capitalist improvement, depending of actual concern.. at time of vote.. each 5 years , and we dont need to go to street to get our vote respected, but all my thought goes to iranian fellow citizen as of today
RT from tehran: the lives of thousands of people at enghelab sq in danger. presence of more people there can help.
Embassies count as land of the embassy country. Police or military of the host country can not enter an embassy without permission.
Oh? Name something bad that the Saudi government has done recently. Then if you have a news site source, post a link, otherwise i'll take it at face value. Preferably a news site outside of iran. I'm not sure if the blackout extends to those working in the iranian government, so i'm not sure how possible this is for you.
My iranian government friend, everyone has their own interests and everyone is willing to serve them. No one is immune to this fact. There is no such thing as a news organization that reports things completely free of bias, hence why most of the conservatives in america grumble about the "liberal run media". So they made Fox News.
That does not mean they aren't trustworthy, however. On the contrary, you can rely on them to report the major issues facing the world, and they often times don't inject their own personal opinions into said stories.
Ah, this has been a bit fun, but i've still got a few things to do today, so I'll have to leave for awhile. I kinda wish the quality of troll was better, but it's unsurprising. See, you don't seem to know anything about america outside of what you've been told by the people in charge. This means you are limited in thinking, and won't be much of a match for people who know what they are really doing. Sun Tzu, the great chinese warrior philosopher once stated "If the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself, but not the enemy. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained, you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle." Or, simply put: Know who you are going against if you want to win.
and try to pick a less obvious time for the trolling.
- A Texan.
I can't think of any instance in Iranian history where pro-government supporters unlawfully stormed an embassy...
My uninformed, personal prediction...
Mousavi has just checked Khamenei, offering himself for death and calling for an INDEFINITE general strike should anything, starting with an arrest, happen to him.
It becomes a checkmate if Rasfanjani can bring down the thunder of the Assembly of Experts, and this ugly affair could be over sooner rather than later.
Otherwise, Iran has just begun an internal seige, with house to house fighting, and chasing each other around the board as pawns and the lesser pieces fall for the cause.

BBC requesting reader comments on the government crack down:
BBC NEWS | Have Your Say | Your reaction to Iranian protests
Do you even know what is political system of Saudi Arabia??????? Either you are crazy or you have CNN, FOX, ABC etc. brainwashed mind?
Of course there is no information because they don't give it, and they are US ally. If you are US ally you don't have to have democracy.
Saudi Arabia is one of the most opressive totalitarian regime on the earth. You people are talking about democracy but you don't have idea what democracy is.
