protesting in Iran can be lethal

Other reports put the number closer to 1000+

Its getting real for the mullahs, so it will be interesting to see how it sorts out between the hardliners and everyone else.

I think it's also worth remembering that someone can be very opposed to something in their own country, yet still show sincere patriotic support for their nation when an outsider does something aggressive. It's very possible people that are now protesting their own government were also turning out in a sincere show of solidarity when one of their top generals was killed by the US.

Sometimes the best way to allow change to happen is to keep out of it and not offer an outside opponent for them to unite against.

There's a lot of US politicians I've detested over the years, but if an outside nation bombed them or invaded us to "liberate" me, I'd be very in support of shooting back at them.
