Thanks everyone, and thanks Dandelion for the Tribute to Neda link - I just lit a candle. Now there are 20,335 burning. I hope Ahmadinejad is overthrown soon. The Iranian people are very courageous to march against tyranny tomorrow. I hope nobody gets hurt.

Iran is gloriously teaching us what we used know in the '60's about :"taking it out to the streets". I am so glad the whole world can watch Iran

"Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely" I am ashamed to say that I was in favor of the original regime change. I was less spiritually mature then than I am now. I now see that the differences were actually quite small between the evil and horrible results of a Theocracy but I must force myself to remember my/our complicity as US citizens allowing the CIA to dictate political policy and power before the change . . . there was no accountability then or now.

I fear for the safety of the demonstrators Tom.
I just watched a preview of a factually based movie about an innocent woman who was stoned to death simply because her husband wanted to get rid if her and persuaded the local mullah to find her guilty of all sorts of trumped up charges. He even got her own sons to take part in this barbaric act.
Apparently there were 8 other stoning executions of women in Iran last year.

P.S. In case anybody is interested the movie is called " The Stoning of Soraya M."

This will be our country if we do not watch our own political leaders intentions. Take the 545 Bilderberg's out of the equation and we would very likely have peace in the world.
