The Iranian protesters have come up with a way to fight back against the Revolutionary guards without getting really violent. They came up with the idea after they took one of them hostage. They took his pants off from him and let him go. The embarrassment is probably worse than punching him in the nose which could just lead to more violence. This could be the start of something big. Actually, it’s already big because the last time the Iranian people rose up against their government Obama stabbed them in the back. President Trump encourages them. Hundreds of thousand Iranian citizens are marching through the streets, taking their lives in their hands in an effort to take their country back.
Obama seemed to take the side of terrorists in Egypt and Libya among others but couldn’t bring himself to support people yearning to be free once again. It’s just not in his DNA. besides, he never sides against people he has on speed dial.
Telegraph UK reports:
The Basij militiaman, a paramilitary storm trooper of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, was reportedly swinging an electric shock baton when the crowd of angry protesters closed in around him.
“They got a Basij, hold him!” one man shouted as the demonstrators pulled away the militiaman’s baton and knocked him to the ground in the largely Kurdish city of Kermanshah.
But rather than beat the man to death, the crowd struck a different kind of blow against Iran’s authoritarian regime: they stripped him of his trousers and sent him stumbling and humiliated into the cold night.
#Update102– An hour ago protesters were attacked by Basij(IRGC) Forces in #Kermanshah but people resisted, took one hostage, took his trousers off and let him go.
This is going to be a tactic against IRGC Forces all over the country when protesters get attacked.#IranProtests pic.twitter.com/VmbtDcm5l0

It’s going to be interesting to see how this all plays out. Will they win their freedom or will they be crushed? never underestimate the human spirit.
