I said nothing about Tiananmen Square.

Face it - The Russian military did not fire on their protesters, and the communist regime fell. How do yo explain the fall of communism, despite their military and police state power? Soviet Communism was arguably more powerful, and more brutal/repressive than the current Iranian regime.

It can, and does repeatedly happen in history, that people bravely rise up and overthrow brutal repressive regimes, usually with many more than two people getting shot. They have done so before in Iran as well. Freedom isn’t free. People die in the effort.

Crowds were back out across the country the day after those two were killed. The population outnumbers the total security forces more than 100 to 1. Typically during regime change, a tipping point occurs, where elements of the security forces either stand down (as in Russia), or turn their guns on the old regime (Romania). Humanity has been been down that path countless times. It obviously can happen.

If you think this is about Islamic Shia Regime change,I assure you that is wrong.
Here is what will happen again. The Iranian Mullahs will call for a “praise to Allah”day to support the regime. The numbers will be in the millions across the nation and every city and town. Just like last time. This will dishearten those that are mad because bread went up 19%. There will be no regime change.
