On-the-scene reports are invariably unreliable, but adding up stuff coming in on Twitter, BBC and Deutsche Welle, as well as the Green web site Kaleme, it seems the fighting in Iran right now is even bigger than the big confrontation of Feb 14th, which so frightened the regime that they took the desperation move of arresting the Green leaders.
There are reports that the regime thugs are using tear gas, pepper spray, cattle prods and bullets against the people.
A soccer game just ended in Azadi stadium, and the fans might join in (you can get up to 100,000 in that stadium, plus 30+ players and 3 refs, heh).
Maybe our feckless leaders might call for the release of political prisoners and equal rights for women? Nah, it’s better to keep negotiating with the regime.
