    Iran opposition figures arrested after protests

    BBC News - Iran opposition figures arrested after protests

    A number of opposition figures have been arrested in Iran, a day after violent protests in the capital left at least eight people dead.

    Those detained include senior aides to opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi.

    His nephew Seyed Ali Mousavi was among those killed in Sunday's violence, the worst since June's contested elections.

    Family members say they are being prevented from holding his funeral because his body has been taken from the hospital where it was being kept.

    And the beat goes on in Iran and not one word out of Mr. Obama mouth over this whole protest.Nor has the EU made any major comments typical of the Left what is going ot take for Mr. Obama and the rest of the World Leaders to finally say enough is enough to Iran when they start killing their own people(oh righ tthey have already done that ) How about building uke Bombs (Oh they are already doing that). Well as more Iranians die the more there blood is on the hands of World Leaders who sit by and do nothing.

    I think a visit by John Kerry would send the wrong message.

    That is probably the worse thing we could do now.

    Attacking Iran could actually unite the two factions against us.

    You know, it has always fascinated me -- the Iranian regime is literally, and thoroughly, everything you guys on the left, in your wildest wet dreams, imagine Republicans/conservatives are or would be if they could. As regimes offensive to everything we in the west are supposed to hold dear, this one is among the historically worst.

    Yet the people who staged years of protests, by the tens or hundreds of thousands, against Bush don't seem to have much more than a shrug for the Iranian theocracy or its people who want to rid themselves of their repugnance.

    No, according to many or most of you folks, they should be engaged. Fox News should be shunned, sanctioned, and ignored, if not put out of business, but it's glad hands all around for those Millennial thugs.
