Protesters Face Heavy Resistance by Police and Paramilitary, but Manage to Gain Some Ground
With recent videos emerging of Iranian riot police retreating from advancing protesters the world must wonder to what extent the Iranian government is able to control the every increasing number of protesters. Furthermore, the video showing the brutal, possibly fatal, beating of a man in his home will only feed the flames of civil unrest already engulfing much of the country. Despite the Iranian Government’s attempts to block all outside communication the protesters have found ways to show the world their plight.
How long before another country intervenes, if ever? Will the world allow a humanitarian crisis to envelop the nation? How will the Iranian government deal with the civil turmoil if it continues unabated for says, if not weeks on end? These are questions no one knows the answers to; we can only postulate and hope for the best.
