Once again, Khamenei’s thugs set their sights on their own people

It’s both fascinating and sickening to see how the clerical regime in Iran believes it will intimidate the western world by killing its own people. As if the Pentagon, the CIA, or the Mossad will look at the Iranian Revolutionary Guards and their Basiji subhuman accomplices with fear because they have the courage to ride by on motorcycles and open fire on unarmed, defenseless students. Well they really do seem to believe this, and Iranian students are once again getting ready to face down Khamenei’s goons, who will have every weapon from kidnapping to rape and murder at their disposal.

From Times Online:

December 7 is traditionally the date when the Iranian Government stages rallies to commemorate the deaths of three student demonstrators killed by the Shah’s security forces in 1953. The tables have now turned. Today the security forces will attempt to crush student demonstrations against its own brutality and repression.

On campuses across Iran, students outraged by the regime’s alleged theft of the presidential election in June, and the subsequent suppression of the opposition, will attempt to hijack the state-sponsored Students’ Day rallies — just as they did last month’s commemoration of the US embassy siege and the annual Palestinian solidarity rallies in September. The regime cannot cancel these events without losing face, but it is doing its utmost to stop today’s protests.

Yesterday security forces began to seal off campuses in Tehran and warned nearby householders not to open their doors to protesters or let anyone take pictures from their roofs. The regime has cut internet services to hamper the opposition’s preparations, and banned journalists employed by foreign news organisations from working on the streets. Dozens of student leaders are understood to have been arrested.

Despite flooding the streets with police and breaking up anything that resembles a non-government sponsored rally, the Islamic Republic has been unable to put a lid down on the anger over last June’s presidential election. While some may disagree with me, I think the future of global extremism is centered around Iran’s internal struggle…a collapse of the Mullah regime would be a deathblow to their beneficiaries in the Middle East, such as Hezbollah, and to some extent, Hamas. I also think that the next chapter in Iran’s future is more important than the debate over Afghanistan, which has already become a political meltdown among the United States, its politicians, and it’s allies.

Persia was not always this way and many Iranians know that. It was once the most powerful and advanced society in the world. It produced inventions that we still use today. Iranians are intelligent–most of them who live in the United States, Europe and other parts have found wealth and success. They hold prominent positions in society in the medical, legal, and technology fields. Therefore, its all the more insulting when Khamenei thinks he can play the “Marg bar Amreeka” card and expect to lead his sheep back to the slaughterhouse.

I’m not expecting anything from my government tomorrow–what, with singers bickering onstage and all–but I hope that everyone who believes that freedom and the right to self-expression to be human rights will join me in solidarity with the Iranians who will try to stand up against their oppression tomorrow, whether they manage to defy the government and organize rallies or if they are forced to stay home and wish for a better tomorrow.

    That would definitely be a side benefit.

    “Persia was not always this way and many Iranians know that. It was once the most powerful and advanced society in the world. It produced inventions that we still use today.”

    Indeed, then came mohamedan islam.

    “I’m not expecting anything from my government….”

    The least western governments can do is help those fighting for liberty and freedom in Iran, instead of sidelining them and currying favor with the bastard mullahs. Which brings me back to your earlier point –

    “As if the Pentagon, the CIA, or the Mossad will look at the Iranian Revolutionary Guards and their Basiji subhuman accomplices with fear because they have the courage to ride by on motorcycles and open fire on unarmed, defenseless students.”

    True, western armies and security forces have little to fear from the scum in Tehran, however the behavior of western leaders today displays a hard-to-understand fear of them.

    MK,

    There is a hard-to-understand fear of the mullahs coming from the US and European governments. Obama is may have no resolve against them, but I have little doubt that the Navy SEALS, the Marines, Delta Force, and the rest of America’s best soldiers see the Revolutionary Guard for the pathetic, desperate losers that they are.

    The Iranian people defied the mullahs once again…Khamenei is living on borrowed time. Mousavi would make a better leader than Ahmadi but neither of them are good…Iranians deserve better!
