Tehran boiling over

There is some serious s#!$ going down in Iran right now. Twitter, the much-mocked social network, is right at the center of it all. Daily Dish blogger Andrew Sullivan declares, “Mock not.”  As the Iranian government tried to squelch information and the resulting outrage, it forgot about those pesky little Tweets – and now pro-government militias are shooting protesters in Tehran.

I do believe we are witnessing a revolution, one that is in all likelihood happening in spite of clumsy U.S. attempts in the past to foment a regime change in Iran. Instead, this is a home-grown insurrection. We do indeed live in interesting times.

One thought on “Tehran boiling over

  1. We now know that this “revolution” was quashed, and the ruling theocracy remains in charge in Iran. Egypt is a different matter now. And Iran could yet fall. Time will tell, as it always does.
