    Trump tweets support of Iranian anti-government protesters after Ukrainian passenger plane shot down

    Anti-government protests erupted at Iranian universities across the country on Saturday, following [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]'s claim that it unintentionally shot down a [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] passenger plane with surface-to-air missiles, killing all 176 people who were on board.

    Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard's aerospace division, had told state TV that his unit accepts “[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]” for shooting down the Ukrainian aircraft, just minutes after it took off from Tehran’s international airport on Wednesday. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani blamed "[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]" in a tweet Friday, and called it a "great tragedy and unforgivable mistake."

    Students called for the resignation of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, with one protester holding up a banner that read, “F--k you & your mistake," at Amir Kabir University, the New York Post [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. The banner also showed the names and photos of 16 students who died in the crash.

    Crowds of students chanted for the Revolutionary Guards to “let go of the country!” and also mentioned deceased Gen. Qassem Soleimani, saying that he “was a murderer" and "his leader is too!” [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] had ordered the drone strike on Solemani and declared the world a safer place following his death.

    Trump tweeted a message of support to the protesters on Saturday, in both Persian and English, promising that his administration would continue to stand with them in solidarity.

    "To the brave, long-suffering people of Iran: I've stood with you since the beginning of my Presidency, and my Administration will continue to stand with you. We are following your protests closely, and are inspired by your courage," Trump's first tweet read.

    The president quickly followed up with a second tweet, calling on Iran to allow human rights advocates to monitor major protests within the country, and warning against any draconian government action.

    "The government of Iran must allow human rights groups to monitor and report facts from the ground on the ongoing protests by the Iranian people," Trump wrote. "There can not be another massacre of peaceful protesters, nor an internet shutdown. The world is watching."

    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also weighed in on the protests, tweeting Saturday that the Iranian people have every right to be frustrated and deserve a brighter future.

    "The voice of the Iranian people is clear. They are fed up with the regime’s lies, corruption, ineptitude, and brutality of the IRGC under [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]'s kleptocracy," he said.

    "We stand with the Iranian people who deserve a better future," Pompeo added.

    Protests were also reportedly held at three other Universities in Tehran.

    Apparently Iran's Ayatollah bit off more than he can chew.

    Now both Khamenei and Xi have problem children. What is the next move? I figured Xi would have stopped his stuff awhile ago but it appears to be to large. It has been quiet over there though.

    The Ayatollah will simply order his "Republican Guards" to round up the protesters and "re-educate" them on the "values" of the Islamic Revolution, and those who refuse the indoctrination will simply "disappear". After that Iran will continue as usual.

    A religious dictatorship is the only kind of dictatorship that is worse than a Communist- Socialist dictatorship.

    "The Days of The Shah", in retrospect, probably don't seem as bad as they use to be, eh?

    Even the liberal media is downplaying this. One report i read said hundreds of protestors and then i watched a video that came from twitter and it clearly showed more than hundreds, looked like thousands to me. I find the comments on many of the stories i have read truly disturbing since the generals demise. Liberals supporting the Iranian govt over the American govt. just because they hate Trump.

    Trump tweets support for the protesters and the dems are silent.
    The protesters are not blaming Trump but their own government so the dems have no comment or support for them.
    They can't use them to bash Trump so I guess they hope that they will get crushed.
