Iranian Protests

Surprised no thread about this. Iran is now into three days of sustained, country-wide protests against the regime. 200 have been arrested and government security forces have shot two protesters dead last night. Regardless if this is turns out to be the start of the revolution that throws the clerics out of power the regime's days are numbered. Back in 2012 half of the population was under 35 years old and that's probably increased by now, the younger generation won't put up with a weak economy and control by radicals for much longer.

I think this is actually a pretty genuine protest. No NGOs or CIA operatives.

From a week ago. This may be one of the catalysts for all of this...

Iran arrests 230 young men and women in one night for drinking alcohol and dancing

There are rumors of an unusually high amount of unmarked planes leaving Iran. If those planes have key regime people, this could mushroom quickely.
