    There is not much to be said that hasn’t been said.
    By those of us here at S &L.
    What are TOTUS and our Secretary of State saying? Anything of substance? Or were they too busy having a Father’s Day BBQ?
    Think of the anguish of so many fathers in Iran.

    Maybe it’s time for regime change, but who will send troops in? NATO?

    • caligirl9 says:

      First our Secretary of State and TOTUS will ask NATO to craft a sternly worded letter telling those mean old Iranian police to stop being so evil!

      When that fails, they will craft another letter and Hillary will hand deliver it.

      When that fails, TOTUS will go on television and announce he’s outraged.

      Then he will have a sternly worded letter crafted in the name of the United States and send that letter.

      When that fails, he’ll send Hil to work her magic.

      When that fails, he will hope we have moved on to something more bright and shiny. Like “look, we are fixing healthcare over here!”

    Well, there’s a couple of more chess pieces that can still make their move to complicate this further. Certain key neutral military and political figures (Ayatollah Rafsanjani one of them) have been silent recently and Mousavi has called a national strike which, if effective, would shut down the national economy, power, water grid and isolate the regime even further, forcing these neutral figures to take a stand. Guns make great father’s day gifts for the patrons of Iranian freedom, but heck what do we know. The opposition is going to try and make it happen without us anyway so let’s just remain cheerleaders. Go liberty! Rah! Rah!

      Yes, I wonder if they are allowed to own guns in Tehran or Iran? I think they should all be carrying sharp instruments anything they can get to protect themselves, thousands of them could jump a a couple of dozen hooded henchmen. They’ve got to make the best of this horrible situation. And it doesn’t appear any civilians care enough to defend Obambies little weazle buddy Ahmahabambie. Doesn’t appear he had a large majority of voters.

      Canary,
      ” I wonder if they are allowed to own guns”

      This is the best argument for American gun ownership out there right now. Our founding fathers could invision this kind of thing happening if and when a “dictator-like” person got into our government.

      As I said…This is the best argument for American gun ownership out there…right now.

      And: Even with today’s remarkable technology where you can see the government thugs firsthand, without the need for a “journalist” to send it to us via “super risky position perched just above the mayhem” It’s on the internet in minutes, if not seconds.

      Yet, Blammo and the Cool Kids are busy ignoring it, as far as I can tell. Besides, it’s Father’s Day weekend and he’s had such a hectic few months, what with destroying this nation and all. He deserves to kick off his shoes, have some toady rub his little footies while he reads the NYT.

      There are some stunning articles over at American Thinker on how this clown is missing one of the greatest opportunities to support a fight for freedom in the history of the middle-east.

      Oddly, he prefers his own self-made crises vs. the actual, real, in-your-face variety

      What a loser.

      Part of the plan.. Remember that an attorney in court will seldom ask a question he does not know the answer to beforehand. If the attorney did, it would jeopardize the planned outcomes due to the nature of the “unknown.”

      He won’t act on anything until he knows what to expect. Being a loser is just part of the strategy.

  4. Maybe a little early to consider what this means to us, but I have added my thoughts as a blog posting on my site.

    This is now a perfect example we can offer of a power centric regime and the willingness to destroy its own people to meet its own ends. Scary stuff.

    1. An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.

    2. A gun in the hand is better than a cop on the phone. 911 Govt sponsered dial a prayer

    3 Those who trade liberty for security have neither.

    4 The United States Constitution (c) 1791. All Rights Reserved.

    5. What part of ‘shall not be infringed’ do you NOT understand?

    6 The Second Amendment is in place in case the politicians ignore the others.

    7 64,999,987 firearms owners killed no one yesterday.

    8 Guns have only two enemies; rust and politicians.

    9 If guns cause crime, then matches cause arson.

    10 Only a government that is afraid of its citizens tries to control them.

    11 When you remove the people’s right to bear arms, you create slaves.

    12 The American Revolution would never have happened with gun control.

    Gun Control means not missing your target
