Iran arrests before tomorrow's protests

THe BBC reports that Iranian police have arrested a number of opposition supporters planning demonstrations during tomorrow's anniversary of the Islamic Revolution.

Police chief Esmail Ahmadi Moghaddam did not give any details of the arrests, the Fars news agency said. "Opposition leaders have called on supporters to gather on Thursday, raising the possibility of violence in cities across the country."

The authorities have said they will crush any anti-government protests. Something tells me that they will fail!

Now that's 'a punch' that 'does the western world' not really 'stunned'.

As it is just not translatable a(n old) joke, here's one for connoisseurs of the German language:

Warum läßt Khomeini sich die Sackhaare einzeln zupfen?
Damit er die Eier toller [speak: Ayatollah] sehen kann.

Okay, roughly translated:
Why would Khomeini let his scrotum-hair pluck (pick) one by one?
So that he can better see the balls.

In English the pun's perdu, of course.

Anyway, all this just to say: Bastards.

Is there anyway the front office can send Galloway to Tehran on vacation.

Does Iran think that we don't know that people protest? In and out of jail?

Khomeini has no balls to look at, Sean. He is really what you and Jams say: un bâtard!
