    Iranian Government Shuts Down Memorial

    Iranian police shut down memorial

    Thursday marked the end of the 40-day mourning period for the woman whose dying moments were caught on video, becoming one of the iconic images of the upheaval and focusing worldwide attention on the unrest.

    Hundreds of police surrounded Mousavi and forced him to leave Behesht-e Zahra cemetery on Tehran's southern outskirts. Police did not forcibly break up hundreds of others, some whom were chanting Mousavi's name and "death to the dictator."
    What a crying shame... and to think, the party line was that Iraq was invaded for humanitarian reasons.

    I think we should unleash Yisrael Beiteinu on them.

    I just think that if the alleged humanitarian reasons for invading Iraq were so pre-eminant, that its neighbour was probably just as bad. Now that the budget has been spent on two words, a new nuclear power is on the rise and it's one who has no respect for human life... Saddam was a pale shadow compared to what this regime dreams of doing.
