  1. Yes long gone are the brutal days of the Shah! He was a chump compared to them.

  2. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.haaretz.com/middle-east-news/iran/iran-s-revolutionary-guards-reportedly-massacred-up-to-100-people-hiding-in-a-marsh-1.8204342) reduced by 74%. (I’m a bot)

    > Iranian opposition leader Mirhossein Mousavi has compared Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to the Shah, the monarch deposed in a 1979 revolution, following the government's crackdown on protests this month.

    > Iran has given no official death toll, but Amnesty International has said that at least 161 people have been killed, while hundreds more are believed to have been killed.

    > The Times continued "Residents said the other protesters scrambled to a nearby marsh, and that one of them, apparently armed with an AK-47, fired back. The Guards immediately encircled the men and responded with machine gun fire, killing as many as 100 people, the residents said. The Guards piled the dead onto the back of a truck and departed, the residents said, and relatives of the wounded then transported them to Memko Hospital.”

  3. You think they would make their cap bills a little longer

  4. you’d think that reddit would care a bit about this . but no…

  5. Well I hope they didn’t injure any Sturgeon who might’ve been swimming in the estuary, with hot lead. Those are an endangered species and they are quite valuable for their prized Beluga Caviar. It would be a real shame to lose any to incidental or indiscriminate gunfire.
