Mutiny Among the Mullahs?

Pajamas Media is picking up a a story originally reported in the Dutch magazine, Elsevier, that elements of the Iranian military have issued a statement warning the Revolutionary Guard not to attack Iranian citizens. The statement reads in part:

“Therefore, we warn the Guards who have betrayed the martyrs (from the war between Iran and Iraq) and who decided to attack the lives, the property and the honor of the citizens. We seriously warn them that if they do not leave their chosen path, they will be confronted with our tough response. The military is a haven for the nation. And we will defend the peace-loving Iranian nation against any aggression.”
This is powerful stuff. As the PJM writer notes, this may be why the Iranians have not gone Tiananmen Square
on the protesting students. It could also be why the Israelis have not gone Osirak on the Iranians yet. This will be worth following...

Hat tip DB.
