Ahmadinejad warns anyone who raises a hand against Iran will get it cut off! Obama orders military to stand down!
Events in Iran are developing too rapidly! Like it or not Ahmadinejad stole the election and Iran is a dictatorship. Ahmadinejad announced he will go to the UN and announce Iran is a world leader and has become one because of force. He will say if any of you defy Iran raise your hand now. Anyone who raises a hand against Iran will have it cut off. Anyway you look at is these developments in Iran are not good for Israel, the middle east, the US, and indeed the entire world.
Is this 1979 all over again? So far there are 7 killed and 7 wounded. There are competing rallies getting ready to start and there are large amounts of under cover Government forces shadowing and mingling with Mousavi supporters.This is not going to be good. Pray for those people! Remember when Ahmadinejad said Iran belongs to the core of the people? From what I have seen the Revolutionary Guard are considered the "core of the people" to Ahmadinejad. The Revolutionary Guard accused Mousavi of trying to hold a velvet Revolution and vowed Ahmadinejad would win the election. It was a selection not an election and all bets are now off. Iran whether we or the good citizens of Iran like it or not, will now be more belligerent than ever.
At first with all the enthusiasm of the people Obama was right to come out and said he was pleased with the robust turnout and display of Democracy. That was before the election was stolen. The White House is quiet now and rightly so. It was wrong to come out and decry Obama for saying that! I was also dismayed when Khamanei came out and gave the turnout his blessing. I am now happy to hear that because of all the dissent over the obvious fraud that he has ordered the election investigated. Whether or not that means anything remains to be seen. I doubt if there will be independent overseers!
People came out in the millions to vote for Mousavi not Ahmadinejad! They wanted change, jobs, sexual equality, peace with America, and no more Holocaust denial. Obviously whoever is really pressing the buttons in Iran does not want that but want a continuation of hostility. Our elections were stolen by Bush so he could continue his Fascist agenda. Iran just got theirs and hopefully they and we along with the middle east and the world will survive this too.
Ahmadinejad said the large turnout proved proved their Democracy works. What the large turnout and Ahmadinejad's so called reelection proved was Iran was not a Democracy and like it or not it was now a Dictatorship! People are rightly incensed. They came out in droves to get rid of Ahmadinejad. People are saying they have never been so angry. Because of the growing anger there has been a clampdown but watch, the real clampdown is yet to come.
In the heart of Iran there were angry Mousavi supporters roaming the streets getting beat up by police or someone. However right now after hearing from Mousavi that they should protest peacefully they are en masse just roaming the streets. There are protests so far peaceful around the world for what it is worth.
Mousavi rightly wants the election nullified by the Guardian Council but I really do not see that happening though a do over would be nice. High turnouts in the past have always favored moderates, reformers, in the same numbers that were "supposedly" given to Ahmadinejad. There is no way this election would have gone in their direction it did. Ahmadinejad in essence has set a bomb in the middle east.
Ex Revolutionary Guard Ahmadinejad has too much power as President. I am hearing that there is fear that Iran has become another Egypt in that in that the military has real control. I fear they are right and that is very troubling because they appear to be looking for a fight. Ahmadinejad is going to ignore Obama's open hand and continue his clenched fist policies. I do not like what I see for the future here and thus the entire world.
The Battle lines have been drawn. This so called war on terror is actually a war between Iran and the west and Ahmadinejad wants it to continue not end. We will all pay! The world has been put on alert! Ahmadinejad said Iran shows force but we will talk peace. Yeah! We are in for major turmoil with Iran and Ahmadinejad is ready and willing.
It was disturbing and telling to me to see that Ahmadinejad would not guarantee Mousavi's safety. At the very least he should be guarded by the Revolutionary Guard but in actuality they are who he has to fear. Khatemei has ordered the charges of election fraud investigated but what is that worth? Is that just to quell the dissent to this Dictatorship?
Average Iranian's now realize President Obama is not their enemy the Mullah's are. The Mullah's are scared to death of Mousavi and his message. You are seeing the consequences of that, a stolen election and the clamping down of all opposition to the dictatorship. It is disturbing and troubling that those that perpetrated this injustice are going to get away with supposedly investigating it. To me that will only guarantee further anger and unrest.
In closing I want to ask a question! I mean really, how on earth did the Iranian Government manage to count 40 million votes so quickly and announce victory for Ahmadinejad? Israel, the middle east, the US, and indeed the entire world is in trouble now unless the Iranian people can do something about this. President Obama has warned America's military in the middle east to stand down and avoid any confrontation with the Revolutionary Guard. We remember the past confrontations or should I say instigation's. This is a real crisis! What's next?
