Iran at the Tipping Point?

Times Online speculated yesterday a revolution may be nearing the tipping point in Iran. I pray for those courageous enough to stand against this brutal regime. The latest effort to squash the protesters comes in this form of vile persecution; they mow down their citizens with a plow:

Also: Hopeful reports the regime is readying a plane should the Ayatollah need to escape to Russia:
Reports from Iran indicate that the Supreme National Security Council has ordered a complete check-up of the jet which is on standby to fly Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Khamenei and his family to Russia should the situation in Iran spiral out of control. The order, to the Pasdaran Revolutionary Guard Corps, was dated on Sunday, 27 December. A fax containing the order was sent to Dutch-based Shahrzad News.
Allahpundit is not as hopeful:
HuffPo notes that January 16 is the anniversary of the shah’s abdication, a date that’ll no doubt be targeted by organizers for a surge in direct action. But still: If Khamenei was going to show weakness this provocative — essentially an admission that he’s no longer sure he can hold the country together — wouldn’t he have tasked the plane check-up to only his most devoutly loyal underlings? The last thing he’d want is to risk a leak that might spook the security forces, who would suddenly fear that the balance of power was about to turn and would side with the protesters so that they didn’t end up hanging from lampposts. Seems much more likely that this is pro-protester propaganda than a genuine scoop, alas.
The world can only wait and watch
