American Thinker: The Mullahs and the Tiananmen Option
American Thinker: The Mullahs and the Tiananmen Option:
Twenty years later, in another youth lead revolution this time in Iran, the fate of a young student standing up against tyranny and oppression is well known. A beautiful girl Nada, a name meaning 'voice' in Farsi, was shot and killed. The horrific image of her death went around the world. It now looks like the Iranian rulers are taking a page from the PRC playbook and will try to fully crush the revolution.
The key is to watch how far the Iranian rulers will go in following what the PLA did in the aftermath of Tiananeman Square. It will get very ugly, I think.
Internally, he PLA immediately upgraded their internal security with state-of-the-art communication systems -- thank you American and other countries selling cell phone and communication satellite capabilities to the PLA. This being the 21st Century, look for the ruling Mullahs to focus on the Internet.
Unfortunately, the Iranian regime has the will to do whatever it takes to hold on to power. It will get uglier.
