Iran protests: ‘Iron fist’ threatened if unrest continues

A Revolutionary Guards commander said the protests had degenerated into people chanting political slogans and burning public property.

Two protesters died of gunshot wounds.

The authorities in Dorud in western Iran said security forces did not open fire on demonstrators, and blamed the deaths instead on Sunni Muslim extremists and foreign powers.

    But President Jimmy Carter gave the Ayatollah the OK to leave France and to overthrow the Shah of Iran. And Jimmy Carter is an even greater President than Obama who also supported the Ayatollahs, so the Theocracy running Iran must be good, right?
