    And the Berlin Wall won’t fall, right Des? You may be right but I will keep my hope.

    You hope for too much. This is tiananmen all over again. , and the bad thing is, a (slight) majority probably supports the establishment there. Shots will be fired, people will be killed, emergency will be declared, and schools will be cracked down on. And in a couple of years, it’ll be like it never happened. And the Mullahs and Revolutionary Guard will still be firmly in control.

    ” I wish the US was doing more to support them”

    So do I! We’ve been praying for this day for 30 years.

    I hope the Iranian people don’t back down, because a defeat here could turn back the democratic clock for decades. All the way! I wish the US was doing more to support them:
    Obama is obviously worried about his promised negotiations with the eventual winner, and is unwilling to endanger his relationship by supporting the other one.
