    Preemptive moves by Iran to silence opposition?

    Seems the wave of revolutions has Iran a little worried:

    Iranian opposition leaders Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi, and their wives, have been taken from their homes by security forces, reports suggest.

    Mr Karroubi's son told the BBC he had heard his father had been moved, but did not know where he had been taken.

    A website close to Mr Mousavi claims the men have been taken to Heshmatiyeh jail in Tehran.

    Iranian government officials denied the report, the semi-official Fars news agency said.

    It comes ahead of planned protests that are due to be held on Tuesday.

    Not surprised as some governments have told their military to open fire on rebels to "suppress" the opposition. We'll see what happens - and according to history, the people eventually win.

    It's only a matter of time.. I pray that the people succeed in kicking out the baboon.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.
