Iran protester slain after huge pro-reform rally

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) – Gunfire from a pro-government militia killed one man and wounded several others Monday after hundreds of thousands of chanting opponents of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad marched in central Tehran to support their pro-reform leader in his first public appearance since disputed elections. The outpouring in Azadi, or Freedom, Square for reformist leader Mir Hossein Mousavi followed a decision by Iran’s most powerful figure for an investigation into the vote-rigging allegations.

Security forces watched quietly, with shields and batons at their sides.

Later, a group of demonstrators with fuel canisters set a small fire at a compound of a volunteer militia linked to Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard as the crowd dispersed from the square. As some tried to storm the building, people on the roof could be seen firing directly at the demonstrators at the northern edge of the square, away from the heart of the rally.

An Associated Press photographer saw one person fatally shot and at least two others who appeared to be seriously wounded.

One thing I have to say for the people in nations like Iran and Iraq, they are NOT afraid to take it to the streets. They know they will be facing armed troops loyal to whatever despot is in charge, but they go out there anyway. Some in this nation are very close to conducting similar actions. I wonder at what point do our TEA Party rallies become a threat to the despot at the head of OUR government?

The United States has been attacked, but we have never been invaded, and this picture tells you exactly WHY!!

The libbers, the leftards, the anti-gun cabal and the all around moonbat gun grabbers think they can make this a better, and safer nation if ALL the guns are gone. And the Despot in Chief says nothing to the contrary.

“I am ready to pay any price to materialize the ideals of you dear people,” he said, speaking though a portable loudspeaker. “People feel their wisdom has been insulted. We have to pursue legal channels to regain our trampled rights and stop this last lie, and stand up to fraud and this astonishing charade.”

Does ANY of this sound remotely similar to the undercurrent running through America? Does ANY of this help to clarify exactly WHY the libtard left wants us unarmed??

The libtards are afraid of the armed American. The armed American is prepared to defend this nation from ALL enemies, both foreign and domestic. The apathetic and the stupid sit back and cry, “It could NEVER happen here”.

They are wrong!

    I was laughing so hard watching Fox News. They were discussing what America should do about Iran’s illegal election. haha
    We can’t say SHIT to another country about their illegal elections. Acorn is such a scam. If I even heard Hussein say anything to another country about the way they handled their elections I would VOMIT.
    The only thing different about those countries over there is they have nothing to lose. Their way of life is so horrible. They’re hungry. Their religion sucks. What’s a couple of knots on the head? Or a beating? They have no medical, no dental absolutely No Rights Whatsoever. So when they head for the streets it’s like a big Party. Dad’s, son’s,Uncles, grandfathers, friends. Yee Haw.
    But we do have Lots to lose here. Everything. And everyday it is slipping away. We are taxed to death. We have NO say in anything unless there’s Millions for the crooked politicians. I don’t see how it’s possible to disarm America. Esp Texas. There is no way in hell my family or friends would give up their RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS. We’ll see.

    Damm good picture Fred, and you are absolutely correct about the apathetic and stupid setting back wringing their hands and crying about all the violence. They are the colaberators. No matter who is in power they’ll kiss their ass as long as they still keep getting their FREE shit. I can’t help but wonder what those pictures coming out of Iran would look like if those people in the streets HAD weapons. I also envision this happening in Iraq as soon as we leave.

    I got home from CDL School, and checked Fred’s place before I did my own at CLO…

    Then I read the two previous comments, well I started thinking music.

    The Yellow Rose of Texas

    Independence Day

    and…

    DIXIE!

    I was singing Dixie a couple of weeks ago and my daughters didn’t know the words. I felt like a Failure. They taught us that song in Elem. guess it doesn’t get taught now.
    They know the words now to the 1st verse now. They now beg for me to Stop Singing. Poor things. We need to make sure our kids and grand kids never forget the songs of the South. Sorry a little off topic.

    Dixie was the favorite song of Abraham Lincoln. So they should teach it with pride.

    I don’t see what the fuss in Iran is all about. it is just changing one right-wing nut case for another. Both men have been approved by the Mullahs to run for President. Neither will have any real power (the Mullahs control everything), and there will be no real change in Iran’s attitude towards us.

    Now if there was a hope that the Mullahs would be toppled? Then we should be jumping for joy and singing Psalms to God.

    hardheadedtexan, in case you don’t have it, here’s a link to the Songs of Dixie

    If the excrement ever hits the overhead air recirculating device and our streets become like Iran, you’re going to be glad you exercised your 2nd Amendment Rights to keep and bear arms.

    I’m heading to Wall-Mart to see if they got any ammo in. 9mm and .45 ACP is getting hard to find and shops that have it have really jacked up the price. Wall-Mart is still selling it at a decent price. Picked up some 9mm for under $10 per box the other day. .45 for $18 per box.

    I believe that’s correct; I believe it’s 12 deaths.

    And now Mr Obama has indicated he doesn’t want to “meddle” in other nations’ affair. Well, of course, that it’s apparently okay to “meddle” in the affairs of ISRAEL, though.

    BZ, what’s that I hear??? Sounds like millions of people clapping to me and I’m one of them…….

  11. comment number 11 by: hardheadedtexan

    Great link BobF thanks.
    I never see that country amounting to anything.
    RELIGION. It’s their curse. Just keep that shit over there. (to late?)
    There are so many different types of Extremists and they’re all nuts. It’s like a murderer winning over a murderer. You couldn’t give me that country. I’ll take the oil……. but they can keep all the idiots and their way of living.

  12. comment number 12 by: hardheadedtexan

    And I am sorry for the people over there that have been killed. Only 12? (Just being sarcastic.)
    But what about our American Heroes that are fighting and dieing everyday for our freedom? What’s our numbers up too? Why have we forgotten them? I’d much rather hear about them. Our scummy MSM will never give them the credit they deserve.
    An arabic saying is God Willing. I can say it in Arabic but don’t know how to spell it. It is their answer for everything. We would tell them to put their seat belts on..No God Willing, Don’t drive so fast.. God Willing. In other words don’t worry about being safe God will take you when he wants. They also say that for the Suicide Bombers and all the other stupid shit they do. God Willing.
