Iran was Persia and it was greatest country in Ancient Ages before Alexander (Macedonian) won Dariy (Persian king). People of Iran even today feels theyself as ruler of the world.
By the way, that region looks like bottle with too many of scorpios. Shiites and Sunnites, Arabs and Ayatollahs, Jews and Muslims, Israel and Palestina.
It is much harder than just to be white and black! Set of nations and religions there create complex problems. These problems needs to be solved peacefully.
Without any "they are enemy of Democracy/Arabs/Jews/Whatever" and boom-boom-kaboom... it will be cruel, ignorant and stupidly!
Saad, you're a bit of a warmonger my friend, are you simply trying to stir up reaction I wonder? Methinks you are.
Damn, and I thought "Iran" was just a phrase. Like: "I ran to the store". Or, "I ran out of toliet paper.."

Live-blog: Ashura in Iran – December 27, 2009
This is a live-blog report on clashes occurring in Iran on December 27, during the Shia mourning day of Ashura. As reports come in, they will be placed at the top of this page. To read this in chronological order it must be read from the bottom up.
Be sure to watch the videos. But CAUTION as many are very graphic. It has been the most intense day since the June 12th 2009 rigged election that gave the presidency to Ahmadinejad. The boldest protests seen to-date. Brutal crackdowns have occurred, protesters have been shot and killed, attacked with batons and knives, but they have also stood their ground and fought back. The stakes have been raised in the struggle between the people of Iran and the dictatorial, brutal government of Khamenei.
Iran Lashes Out at West Over Protests

BEIRUT, Lebanon — Iranian authorities on Tuesday struck back at international condemnations of the government’s crackdown against the opposition, summoning the British ambassador to the Iranian Foreign Ministry and accusing the United States and Britain of orchestrating violent protests that rocked the country earlier this week.
Speaking to reporters, the spokesman for Iran’s Foreign Ministry, Ramin Mehmanparast, said countries including the United States and Britain had miscalculated in criticizing the government’s response to the demonstrations, which left at least eight people dead.
“Some Western countries are supporting this sort of activities. This is intervention in our internal affairs. We strongly condemn it,” he said, according to The Associated Press. “In this regard, the British ambassador will be summoned today.”
The British government said its ambassador to Iran, Simon Gass, would respond “robustly” to any criticism and would reiterate calls for Iran to respect the rights of its citizens.
The conservative speaker of Iran’s Parliament, Ali Larijani, rebuked American and British officials for their “disgraceful comments” about the demonstrations, according to the state-run PressTV. The criticisms of Iran’s action were “disgustingly vivid that they clarify where this movement stands when it comes to destroying religious and revolutionary values,” he said.
Opposition Web sites quoted by news agencies said Tuesday that authorities had detained the sister of Nobel peace laureate Shirin Ebadi on Monday night, adding to the toll of arrests following the Sunday’s protests.
Iranian authorities arrested at least a dozen opposition figures on Monday, including former Foreign Minister Ibrahim Yazdi, the human rights activist Emad Baghi and three top aides to the former presidential candidate Mir Hussein Moussavi, Iranian news sites reported.
All told, more than 1,500 people have been arrested nationwide since Sunday, including 1,110 in Tehran and 400 in the central Iranian city of Isfahan, the pro-opposition Jaras Web site reported.
In Hawaii, where he is on vacation, Mr. Obama condemned the violence against protesters and called for the release of those “unjustly detained.”
“For months, the Iranian people have sought nothing more than to exercise their universal rights,” Mr. Obama told reporters. “Each time they have done so, they have been met with the iron fist of brutality, even on solemn occasions and holy days.”
He added that the protests in Iran had nothing to do with the United States or other foreign countries. “It’s about the Iranian people, and their aspirations for justice, and a better life for themselves,” he said. “And the decision of Iran’s leaders to govern through fear and tyranny will not succeed in making those aspirations go away.”
The streets of Tehran were largely quiet on Monday and early Tuesday, as citizens absorbed the shock of Sunday’s violence. Thirteen people were reported to have been killed and many more wounded in street battles in cities across the country between security forces and protesters, who fought back more fiercely than ever before. The government said Monday that eight people had been killed in Tehran, and opposition Web sites catalogued five deaths in other cities.
The government said that it was holding the bodies of five protesters, including a nephew of Mr. Moussavi, the state-run IRNA news agency reported, in what appeared to be an attempt to prevent funerals that could turn into more demonstrations. The bodies were being held pending autopsies.
The authorities’ use of deadly force on the Ashura holiday drew a fierce rebuke on Monday from the opposition cleric and reformist candidate Mehdi Karroubi, who noted that even the shah had honored the holiday’s ban on violence.
“What has happened to this religious system that it orders the killing of innocent people during the holy day of Ashura?” Mr. Karroubi said in a statement, according to the Jaras Web site.
Mr. Karroubi, a fierce critic of the government, was attacked Sunday by plainclothes security officers, and other attackers later smashed the front windshield of his car, the Sahamnews Web site reported.
Government supporters blamed opposition members for the violence and called for their prosecution. The Revolutionary Guards issued a statement calling violence by the protesters a “horrible insult to Ashura” and called for “firm punishment of those behind this obvious insult,” the semiofficial Fars news agency reported.
Large groups of police officers stood guard in several central Tehran squares on Monday morning, witnesses said. At least three subway stations were closed, apparently to prevent any further gatherings.
Still, there were reports of continuing scattered protests on Monday in Tehran’s Haft-e-Tir square and other areas, Jaras reported.
The police fired tear gas to disperse a group of mourners who gathered outside the Tehran hospital where the body of Mr. Moussavi’s nephew, Ali Moussavi, had been held, the Nowrooz Web site reported. A prominent opposition figure with ties to the Moussavi family said Ali Moussavi had been killed by assassins.
Family members said Mr. Moussavi’s body disappeared from the hospital overnight, and on Monday IRNA reported that his body and four others were being held while investigations were carried out.
A 27-year-old journalist who was reporting on the street clashes on Sunday was reported missing. The reporter, Redha al-Basha, who was working for Dubai TV, has not been heard from, according to a statement issued by Dubai TV. Mr. Basha was last seen surrounded by security forces in Tehran, witnesses said.
The group Human Rights Activists in Iran said that the 1,100 people arrested in Tehran were being held in Evin Prison, the Gooya Web site reported.
Among those arrested in Isfahan was the son of a senior cleric, Ayatollah Jalaleddin Taheri. Ayatollah Taheri is the former Isfahan representative of Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and his son Muhammad is married to the granddaughter of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the father of Iran’s 1979 revolution.
Ayatollah Taheri tried last week to lead a memorial service for the dissident cleric Grand Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri, who died Dec. 20. The arrest of his son was viewed as an effort by the authorities to pressure the ayatollah.

Simply Staggering Footage

Just released on the web: the full scene of that astonishing moment when a group of baseej is surrounded by the crowd, and disarmed. If this doesn't unnerve Ahmadi, what will? And it makes a new and ante-upping move by the regime more likely.
Iran is a pigsty.
You made me laugh, ablarc.
But I think you're seriously correct.
Seems the Iranian regime, in response to those challenging the government, is in the process of changing the colors on the national Flag of Iran:
Iran Patriotism Special: Wiping the Green From The Flag
From Radio Free Europe:
Where Is The Color Green?
They changed the Green Color of Iran Flag to Blue
The Iranian flag as adopted 29 July 1980:
So to oppose the "foreign backed" co-option of Green - the color representing Islam in the Iranian flag - they're going to the good ol' Red White and... BLUE? Go America!
Fun fact - blue was the color of the Shah and the Imperial family!
I'm betting they'll back away and say it was a "technical error" or some such.
How's this for progress? Love it, but I fear for this woman's life.

State laws in Iran require women to wear a hijab - a scarf that covers their hair and neck - and loose fitting clothes that covers their bodies.
Perhaps next time he’ll think twice before opening his mouth.
A mouthy Iranian cleric spent three days in the hospital after he was savagely beaten by a woman he criticized for having her head partly uncovered, state news reported.
Hojatoleslam Ali Beheshti, a mid-level cleric in the northern province of Semnan, was on his way to a mosque in the town of Shahmirza when he spotted the woman's veil looking loose and warned her to cover up, Mehr news agency reported.
"You cover your eyes," she shot back according to the news agency.
State laws in Iran require women to wear a hijab - a scarf that covers their hair and neck - and loose fitting clothes that covers up their bodies.
When Beheshti repeated the warning, the woman got aggressive, the cleric said.
"Not only didn't she cover herself up, but she also insulted me. I asked her not to insult me anymore, but she started shouting and threatening me," Beheshti said.
"She pushed me and I fell to the ground on my back," he continued.
"From that point on, I don't know what happened. I was just feeling the kicks of the woman who was beating me up and insulting me."
Behshti said he spent three days in the hospital after the beat-down.
He didn't file an official complaint, despite going through "the worst days of his life," according to Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, which blogged about the Mehr report.
Authorities in Iran classified the case as a "public beating" and were reviewing the case, according to the report.
Other Iranian clerics have taken lumps for warning women to cover their stuff, including one working for Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, according to Mehr.
