you mean the green - movement's aim is to force the government to make a reformation so that its people can have a voice in the domestic affairs! Do you think it is proper to compare the Iranian goverment with the Chinese government in 1999?

the green - movement's aim is to force the government to have a reformation so that its people can have a voice in the government. Do you really think it is a good idea to compare the nowadays iranian government and the Chinese goverment in 1999?

The segment does not seem to answer the very questions posed in the online introductory copy. I don't think I drew any wrong or incomplete conclusions from last year's reporting. It seemed to an educated observer that it was a diverse movement and a lot had gone on in Iran but it was going to take time for anything "revolutionary" to happen. Did we really need to hear from this dude at all, or is there something about an anniversary that demands attention?
