Will Iran be Next?

Dozens of Iranian opposition protesters were arrested today (Monday) after participating in a rally in Tehran expressing support for the popular uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia. Will Iran be the next Middle East nation to rise and resist their dictatorial regime?

“Lord God, we pray for Iran today. We pray that true peace and freedom will reign there. We pray for the strength and courage of opposition leaders. We pray that there will be no violence. We pray this in Jesus’ name.”

    What, no prayer for the dictator there like you did for Egypt? No tirade against President Obama?
    You realize a revolt in Iran is the Military-Industrial complex’s worst nightmare; there’d be no excuse for us to invade. Of course such an invasion would be a horrible mistake, but one the Republican candidates were itching to make and likely still are.

    We have little influence in Iran compared to Egypt, although I think more and more that the pro-democracy movement there does need some outside help if it’s going to be successful.
