More Coming Across From Twitter

Shown in the video below, 5 basij retreated into their headquarters to escape mob justice last night. According to the write-up on this video, the mob managed to fire the natural gas lines leading to the building. Five basij were believed dead in the explosion and fire.



The regime, concerned that the basij and IRGC may balk at killing their unarmed countrymen - people whose sole sin is to protest the corrupt regime - is importing Hezbollah from Lebanon and Hamas from Gaza to form seperate basij units. They speak arabic, not farsi. Messages have been going across Twitter telling people to destroy street signs to confuse these foreign basij. Clever.

A few days ago, I was delighted to see reports that our State Department requested Twitter to delay a planned outage so the protesters would not have their communications cut.

A commenter on the Strata-Sphere site pointed out that it was actually Jared Cohen, a Condoleezza Rice appointee in the department, who did this.

As he is NOT an Obama appointee, I sure hope he survives this act.

The story here: The man who saved Iran.

This is the thing about these regimes, they rule with violence and force, but eventually it catches up with them and the violence and barbarity is returned in spades.

As I said in an earlier comment,
the biggest problem with ruling by fear and intimidation is,
"GOD HELP YOU" if the ever STOP fearing you.

GW:
The double-post was an accident. When you get a chance, could you strike the extra one, please?

(I DO believe in the following:

"If you have an important point to make, don’t try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time - a tremendous whack." ~Winston Churchill,

and some may have noticed that I am absolutely shameless about making the same comment in different threads, but one should draw the line somewhere.)
