As an outsider: those Iranians who took part in the protest looks ridiculously foolish and laughable given the fact that there are so many hostile forces working against Iran, Mr Mousavi should have gone the legal way instead of allowing the Iranian nation to entertain to the enemies of Iran who must be rejoicing what they see, also the message they are sending out is, ‘yes, we too are vulnerable just like the rest of the conquered Muslim world’ I have somehow lost my respect and admiration for the Iranian people.
You say, “as an outsider,” but the words you speak are those of one who has a power seat in Tehran.
