Iranian Revolutionary Guards Arrested

The unrest in Iran is taking a turn toward revolution. Several members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards have been arrested. From the Washington Times:

According to the Cyrus News Agency, Tuesday morning 16 senior members of Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps were arrested. "These commanders have been in contact with members of the Iranian army to join the people's movement," CNA reports. "Three of the commanders are veterans of Iran-Iraq war. They have been moved to an undisclosed location in East Tehran." This report has not been confirmed by other sources. If true, it shows that the regime is losing the loyalty of some members of its control appartus, which is necessary if the opposition has any chance of achieving fundamental change.

Ain't looking good for the mullahs if members of the Revolutionary Guard are turning on them. Especially if they align themselves with the army. The mullahs have always played these groups against one another, thereby diluting the chances of the formation of a powerful enough group to overthrow them.
