Iranians March In Support Of Arab Revolts

From this source:
Thousands of Iranians marched on Friday in Tehran in support of the revolts rocking Bahrain, Libya and Yemen, state television reported.

Chants backing the protests of majority Shiites in Bahrain, who are challenging the Sunni dynasty's 200-year-old grip on power, dominated the demonstration which unfolded in the capital after Muslim Friday prayers

"The Saudis are committing crimes and the US supports them," and "Death to America" chanted protesters.

"Death to Israel," cried others.

Slogans in support of the rebellion in Libya and protests in Yemen also rang out..
In my view, there is no "good side" to support right now as the Arab world continues to churn.

Also in my view, these revolts, a part of which is sectarian and tribal warfare between Sunnis and Shi'ites, are not about bringing democracy to the people of those nations. Rather, the protesters want a better life, but still a life submitting to Islam and shari'a.

The only revolution that I could see myself supporting in the region would be one in Iran.
That's the only place where a revolution would be a no-lose outcome for us.
I don't even think I'd be for one in Syria.
Maybe a revolution in Sudan, maybe.
