The Sound of Freedom?

Tomorrow is 22 Bahman, the day a group of young students wishing for a better government, a better country and a better life, toppled a dictatorship against the unlikeliest of odds, forever changing the course of their country and putting their country at the center of a global geopolitical storm that would last for decades.

Tonight:

They chant:  “Death to the Dictator,” but the year is not 1979 and the dictator is not a Pahlavi.

Check out the various sources, cited in an earlier post by the Cowboy here.  Sullivan is still on top of things, but not doing dedicated coverage.  Backgrounder here.  Tehran Bureau is another good source.  Wright has a thought-provoking  realist view.

Pray for the land desiring to be free and the brave seeking to make it so.
