50 years ago we went into Iran at the behest of the British and that is what contributed towards getting us into this mess in the first place. We helped overthrow Mossadegh, installed the Shah and the rest is history.
I think we need to look at long term rather than short term strategies, myself, and rushing in now runs the risk of a backlash similar to that of our earlier involvement. It would also take the impetus for change away from the Iranian people and that is the worst thing to do IMO. Change has to come from within, and so our role should be to help make sure the world knows what is really going on there. We should be pointing out how Palestinian goons are being imported to do much of the dirty work, especially inasmuch as THEY are the foreigners here, not us. By illuminating the fact that it is Palestinians killing Iranians, we can establish that our own intent isn't to invade, and perhaps even wake up a few Europeans in the process.
I'm not against offering assistance, but nascent movement like this needs time to coalesce into something more organized. Otherwise, there is no valid structure in place to replace the rotton one.

It was a civil war, bad things happen during wartime and those responsible for the rape and murder of the nuns were found guilty and sentenced to prison, the Cristiani government which was instrumental in ending the civil war and accepted free and fair democratic elections and the peaceful transfer of power to the opposition was far superior to the current Iranian theocracy.Still what is without a doubt is that a government whose forces raped nuns killed preists and massacred indians is in no way superior to todays Iranian government.
It has now been confirmed:

It's a grainy video and it's hard to tell what's going on but the gunshots are clearly audible.

Doesn't anyone in Tehran have a decent video camera? Jesus, I'm tired of looking at phone video.
