2. The protests in Egypt in the 21st century started by Facebook and Twitter. In Egypt they also news was by news T.V channels. In Iran the only way of getting news was by words. In Eqypt the end celebration when Mubarak stepped down was fireworks and joy in Iran it was looting and killing imperial marksmen for three days. Egypt was a Dictatorship but in Iran it was a Monarch with the Shah family.The Shah family had control for 2000 years but Mubarak had 30 years.
3. Iran is a prison because after Shah family was kicked out the presidential election got stolen and human rights started fleeing the country because all of the brutal treatment by the interrogators who use rape as torture methods.More than 5000 people were arrested.
4.The fear of America with the protests is that if Americans see this they could start protesting. Another fear is that America is a big consumer of natural gas and with protests going on markets close. If the markets do open the natural gas prices will be very expensive.
