There’s a full description of the riot at the mall at Pajamas Media, along with other useful links.
The cell-phone video represents good news, to say the very least. The fact that the Iranian regime is producing videos encouraging the population to become informants is also good news, if you think about it. It remains to be seen where the allegiances of the Iranian people lie, but there are strong indications the younger folks have had enough.
This, on the other hand, is not good news… in any respect. Sanctions are warranted, to be sure. But the unrest of the Iranian people and their increasing willingness to confront the ayatollahs’ goons must be considered in any future course of action. The Iranians go to the polls for parliamentary elections on March 14th. To say that election will be interesting is the understatement of the year. Can you say “martial law?”
Good Lord… I’m just so thankful to be an American.

Today’s Pics: These may be the last of the Sinop pics. I have more, but you can wear anything out if you try hard enough. Today’s pics fall into the category of Local Color…even though they’re in black and white. Interesting architecture, eh?
As always...click for larger.
