January 1979, R E V O L T

Don't be confused, this is not today's demonstration in Tehran.

These are not the same tear gas shots from "ISLAMIC GUARDS"in 2009, but surely the same brand and from same guns....

These are same people, confronting Shah's police and "MONARCHY GUARDS" in 1979 revolution.

What a similarity....

Could anybody tell the difference?

Dictatorship has many faces, but only one language and only one destiny.

Today people in Iran are facing same crimes as they faced 30 years ago..... may those who commit these crimes take a lesson from ones who did the same 30 years ago.

And if Shah, or any other dictators during all human history could make it sure Islamic dictators could make it too.

 

Wish I was able to be there for a very similar documentary and would call the series "THE REPEATING OF HISTORY..."

Take a look at this clip:
