you keep going on and on about Iran but you need to have some info or facts before posting.
Iran's election problems had nothing to do with regime change. Even if President changes the regime will stay in power since most people are supporting the islamic regime.

Iran is certainly different from the others in the region.

If Iran ended up like Egypt it would be HUGE. It's pretty unlikely though.

I think there's plenty of evidence that the last round of elections were pretty well fixed in advance, and that the Republican Guard and the mullahs are not going to allow anything like a free and fair election.

I also think that a lot of Iranians feel marginalized and/or disenfranchised, and are willing to take risks to do something about it.

How do you come up with the idea that Iran's elections were fixed in advance?
Is it because the opposition said so?
Is it because the West said so?
Is it because a number of opposition supporters protested?
Where you counting the votes?
Where you one of the inspectors of ballot boxes?

When all the information available agrees, it's hard to believe it's ALL conspiracy. The only ones denying it seem to be reps of the Iranian govt, in my opinion.

To me, the real point is this: violent suppression of public, political expression by such large numbers of people is pretty much the definition of dictatorship. Lots of good pictures here:

If Ahmadinejad really won a fair and free election, he should be able to demonstrate that to everyone's satisfaction without unleashing armies of thugs on the streets.

Please have a friendlier tone.

You are right that the regime is liked and loved by many Iranians, especially outside of the big cities like Tehran.

But when there was demonstrations they shouted down with Khamanei, and they wanted Democracy.

So you both are right. I strongly belive Irans youth WILL try sometime soon to bring down the regime...but it will be hard because the regime have many many supporters unlike Egypt and other ME states.

But UK, have a friendlier tone please, we all are friends here

I meant to delete this thread (but deleted the OP only by mistake) as Joe Bese had made a good one already that I missed.

Please carry the discussion at Joe's thread .
