    IRANIAN Mullahs have violently cracked down on protesters who mounted a defiant stand against the oppressive regime.
    Anti-government marches in the city of Kazeroon against the Islamic fundamentalist regime ended in violence after Tehran forces reportedly killed two.
    Protesters took the streets over the governments plans to change the city’s boundaries, which aims to give more power to recently-elected MP Hossein Rezazadeh.
    Residents took to the streets in a bid to halt to move over the past few weeks, leading to stronger anti-government slogans and speeches to become more prominent.

    Tehran's violent crackdown comes just days after the US pulled out of the controversial 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

    “The mullahs are more vulnerable than ever before and the regime change is very much within reach.”
    Tehran’s violent crackdown comes just days after the US pulled out of the controversial 2015 Iran nuclear deal.
    Indeed, this is "News the MSM just won’t cover. "
    As opposed to their cheerleading of 'Revolution' and 'Regime change' in Egypt and the US deposing Gaddafi during the former president's administration. There are those who say the Western media encouraged the Iran revolution and deposing the Shah. As we've been seeing now for some time, the Progressive Marxist infiltration of the media supports the radical Islamist Regime, not the pro-democracy people, just as the Nazis did prior to and during WWII.
    Obama and his administration failed in his last attempt, we can only hope and pray the Iranian people finally throw off the fanatics.
    Meanwhile we hear of the bearded Ayatollahs savages ordering to open fire on people and not a word from the Progressive Marxist biased media. Because these bearded savages are Muslim, and the Progressive Marxist Left has given Muslim tyrants a free pass to do whatever they want. The Progressive Left has made a deal with Muslims just as the Nazi's did in the 1930's and 40's.

    No please just ****ing stop with your regime change, haven't you learnt anything in the last two decades. The only thing that's going to happen is you're going to push Iran deeper into the hands of the conservatives.

    Don't you think it interesting for people on the Far Let to go after Israel for protesting their border, yet your rhetoric is soft as a babies but when the Palestinians do it to the Israelis. This type of hypocricy is why people refuse to listen

    Exactly what part of my quote are you referring to, I'm talking about Iran, you're talking about Palestine. I also put it to you that you don't really know what my position on the Palestine/Israel issue is, unless you are referring to a post I made in another thread.

    if this is report it should be borne in mind that this particular is historically Sunni which supports Jihadists, just like right wingers often do, and are enemies of the Shiia government

    I wonder if any Democrats are going to post "The Muslims killed protesters."

    Yes it would be preferable to keep the Iranian people under the yoke, we ought to all urge the repressive Islamic fundamentalist regime to viciously repress the people in Iran, try to persuade the Iranians it is better to live on their knees than die on their feet protesting, after all this if the "American" way!

    No surprise that a right wing applauds the actions of radical Jihadists.

    Very doubtful since Democrats do not support radical Jihadists like right wingers do.

    oh please don't be so naive, how many times must we do this. Burn the whole ****ing country down then say "you're welcome". Democracy is worthless if you're dead. Besides an uprising will only give the Revolutionary Guard an excuse to tighten their grip on Iran. Let Rouhani work his magic, it's slow but at least he's a moderate. Of course it's an impossible job with the stunt Israel (Trump) just pulled.

    Far right American radical applauded when terrorist Bush invaded Iraq and killed Saddam who was al-Qaeda's biggest enemy. Because right wingers supported traitors in Syria, Assad's government was undermined thereby leading to the emergence of ISIS in that country. Today, forum far right America hating radicals now applaud civil war from Sunni-Jihadist radical traitors in Iran so that the country's government can be torn down and a new radical Sunni group emerges to terrorize the earth. Far right terrorists support their peers in al-Qaeda, ISIS, al-Nusra and they seek to have them destroy any hope of peace in the ME.

    When are people in this forum, in this country, and throughout the world going to open their eyes and minds and to realize that the right wing are a bunch of treasonous America hating traitors???

    In your OP.

    “The mullahs are more vulnerable than ever before and the regime change is very much within reach.”

    There should be no Western led war to change the regime, but if the Iranian people are going to go ahead and do it of their own accord im sure not gonna shed a tear.

    Personally I favor a policy which treats the Middle East as if it doesn't exist. Let them sort it out themselves. Let Iran and Russia run all over it if they want.

    it's in quotations so may not be your words... I think we should at the very least come up with a new word for regime change... call it "intervention" sounds like therapy... like you're really trying to help.

    I was writing of past efforts of regime change. I wasn't claiming that we should egin efforts to change the regime in Iran. My referral to regime change was by the citizens of Iran themselves.
    "As opposed to their (Progressive Democrat Leftists) cheerleading of 'Revolution' and 'Regime change' in Egypt and the US deposing Gaddafi during the former president's administration". [Emphasis mine]

    This comment makes no sense. What was Libya? Egypt? Obama was very active in the Middle East, he just preferred threats and diplomacy over bombs and ground invasions (except when he didn't)

    Moreover, Iran loved Obama's policy because he gave them leverage to wage a proxy war with KSA in Yemen, and shifted from an aim to end the reign of the Iranian Mullahs to one of promoting "moderates".

    As Egypt shows, a lot of the time these "moderates" are brutal savages. Thankfully in Iran the moderates weren't savages, just non-existent.

    Well I'm referring to Obama's hands off approach with Hezbollah that allowed it to grow into what it is today, (refer Politico article & thread somewhere) also Obama's reluctance to act in Syria.

    When it comes to Israel he was not hands off, Kerry wanted to hand Golan Heights back to Syria and he and Obama engineered the Security Resolution that changed the status of Jerusalem to occupied. Therefore imo he was working against Israel and for Iran.

    Imo disengaging from the Middle East would be a huge mistake, Obama tried to withdraw from Afghanistan and Taliban presence increased immediately, this Spring have been extremely violent in Afghanistan the US still trying to get security under control after Obama's withdrawal. Iran also started becoming more active in Afghanistan, the US have already given Iraq and Syria to Iran by disengaging, leave Afghanistan and they will destabilise and eventually take that as well.
