It’s a War of a Different Kind

It’s devastating
Sad and mad
It’s chaos
Tumultuous in divine blood

From Tehran to Isfhan to Shiraz
And lots beyond what meets the eyes
It’s a call from the voiceless, oppressed
“Neda”

It’s the youth against the moth of culture
The 21st century against ancient autocracy
Science against witchcraft, tyranny
And lunacy

It’s technology against theocracy
Twitter against Tear Gas
Facebook against fascism
Internet against interwoven bets

Youtube against you kill
It’s a cry for freedom
“Don’t be scared, we’re all in this together”
Is not just a political slogan

It’s the logo of unity that empowered the masses
To give life for life
And pride
For future

Freedom is expensive
Extensive in measures
And the only ones who know what it means
Are the ones who are deprived of it

For years you waited
Anticipated
And cried
In dismay

Today
Is your day
Kudos to the freedom fighters of Iran

    A flutter of the wings of a butterfly will eventually lead to ripple effect on subsequent historic events. Chaos Theory is at work here!

    I do not think that it is about fraudulent election returns. The unrest has been brewing under the surface for some years now. June 12 is only a trigger.

    With the constitutional revolution of 1906, it is interesting to read the concept that the crown is a “divine gift” of the people to the Shah (Muzzafar-u-din).

    It’s a tragedy, i have a question though, democratic elections were held, najad won by a huge margin, why are people protesting?

    Also this has nothing to do with theocracy.. seculars kill protesters at least just as much.. do you need examples?

    I agree with you 100 percent; I think this uprising has unleashed the monster.

    For your first comment I refer you back to Sharqawi’s, as for your second comment; yes dictatorship can be found within some secular systems, but it is a rule of thumb within all theocratic systems, and that’s the difference. If you can’t see that, then you have a problem.
    :p

    Very nice reference, thank you very much, I don’t buy it though.. numbers talk, the current elections had the highest participation ever, over seventy percent if am not mistaken, coupled with an overwhelming majority voting for najad is a clear indicator that the people of Iran are happy and content with the current regime.. yes there has always been an opposition in Iran who would like to see some sort of change, but they are a minority as manifested by the election results, and YES ‘June 12 is only a trigger’, a trigger to their barbarism, they certainly can learn a thing or two from the Lebanese opposition..

    as for the second part, I suppose I have a problem then ;s
