AP News alert FROM IRAN: AP photographer sees pro-government militia fire at opposition protesters, killing at least 1.
And if this is true:
The Basiji police that killed 4 ppl in Tehran got killed by the ppl! eye for an eye! #iranelection
…we’re now at the cusp of something. If the crowds start thinking that the militia are going to shoot at them anyway – well, they stop being ‘crowds,’ and become the Mob.
No, that is not good. The whole point of having a Velvet Revolution is to avoid waking up the Mob.
PS: Jules Crittenden has put together a roundup of some of the reactions to the Iranian situation in general.
