    Don't be so quick to write them off. 300,000 people with sticks, stones, knives, and molotov cocktails are not unarmed. They can quickly shut a city down and overwhelm police stations and militia headquarters and seize more weapons.

    I hope they succeed, but I doubt they will. Sticks, stones, knives and molotov cocktails aren't much of a match for automatic weapons, tanks and helicopters.

    Anyone who twitters, set your date and time to Tehran to help the protesters hide from the Iranian gov. They're tracking down tweeters by date and time and trying to shut them down.

    True, but they said the same thing in 1979 I imagine no?
