1979, or 1989?

A letter Sully posted tonight makes it clear why the situation in Iran is going to get worse before it gets better:

Even the person we voted for [Musavi, Karroubi] told us to “be silent because this government has no fear to tear your breasts and spill your blood in all of Persia’s rivers”.

The person we voted for asked us to be silent. To forget.

He said these people are not Muslim. They are liars. The police here are like wolves. Religious people in neighbourhoods laugh at and disrespect us as non-Iranian.

"...these people are not Muslim." The righteous do not forget, and they do not surrender.

This will end in either another revolution, a la 1979, or another massacre, a la Tienanmen Square in 1989. There doesn't seem to be a third way forward at this point, not even a new election.
