    I don't think this guy is simple case of not listening to reason. I think he's trying to get people killed.

    I vote for b&.

    If you feel strongly that this should be twittered, twitter it yourself.

    If there must be an army, be it yourself, since NYPA.

    From my limited understanding of international law-
    it's potentially risky business for embassies to take in dissidents or protesters.

    Anyone who has operated a diplomatic mission in Iran since 1979 knows this really fucking well.

    If they open their gates, its a calculated risk. Generally, in a situation like this, Iran would caution the guest delegations to not interfere with their local politics. The guest delegations would generally agree with that principle- but some people would get through anyway.

    The major recourse that Iran would have, would be to prevent protesters from gaining access to the Embassies- which they probably are, and (generally) legally can. It seems improbable that very large numbers of Iranian civilians would be able to flee into the foreign embassies-
    but not improbable that, if allowed, some might get through. Injured people, ones who seem more likely to be harmless, would have a better chance.

    I fear that Hindmost is correct in claiming that many or most persons seeking refuge in foreign embassies will not get in. Many will be blocked. If many do get through- the embassies will fill up and not be able to take more on.

    On the other hand- suggesting people mass around hospitals is.... given the circumstances, probably even stupider.

    It's known that militia are picking people out of hospitals. (confirmed)
    It's likely that militia are trying to grab people trying to get into embassies.

    People on the ground in Iran should be aware that, most every option is dangerous. They'll need to judge for themselves which path is the least risky. :(

    Waiting with a bunch of injured people outside a hospital - seems like a bad idea
    Sneaking around snipers and militia, to get into an embassy - hard to say
    Expecting that you'll be safe once you make it inside a hospital - hard to say
    Expecting that you'll have an easy time walking in to your local diplomatic delegation - doubtful

    tl;dr

    stay safe

  25. Pipe Dreams!!!

    ***THIS IS A EDITORIAL AND IS NO WAY REPRESENTATIVE OF THE WRITER'S BELIEFS, THE AIM IS TO INSPIRE DISCUSSION ON THE FUTURE OF IRAN***

    Tiananmen Square was one of the bloodiest revolt of a people against its regime in the 20th century in the name of freedom...Countless of Chinese citizens numbering about 20,000 and countless more remain dead or missing, their whereabouts missing....This is what freedom means to them...How can u expect that 7 so called martyrs are gonna promote change in Iran? Change from a regime that is stern and unyielding will require payment in bloodshed, with serious human lives lost...

    If the problem is the theocracy, the fact that Mousavi wins still doesn't mean squat as both Mousavi or Ahmendinijad are still puppets, available to the mullahs every bidding...If u seriously want change then topple the theocracy and don't expect us Americans to help you to do so...Obama the UN and the rest of the Western world are just going to give the theocracy lip service, harsh rhetoric with little bite...

    You can appeal to Sunni Saudi Arabia and have a jihad against the Shiite theocracy and later on submit to a bloody civil war just like Iraq and still be under harsh Sharia law...or u can either abandon Islam in favor of Christianity and then your country will have the full support of the Christian crusaders of yore...only then will the US and the rest of Europe really pour money and effort into defeating the theocracy...

    what do u think? Armed struggle? or just relying on foreign governments to pressure the theocracy to bend over backwards - dream on...
  26. RT PLS RETWEET*: Revolutionary Guard moving into Tehran outskirts in force!!!

    This is not going to just go away and be forgotten by either side. Change is coming hopefully sooner than later and with as little bloodshed as possible. It is past the point of no return, all the pressure is on the dictatorship now as you can see by them hiding from what makes a true democracy, the people because in a true democracy its the government that fears the people not the people fearing the government.

    Well, most in the west, and many in Iran, now believe that the position of Supreme Leader is an obstacle to freedom, but it is up to the people within Iran to decide what they fight for and how they fight for it.
