Top Iranian Opposition Leader Mousavi Challenges Supreme Leader after being outlawed!
IRG Ahmadinejad, the stolen election, the killing and imprisonment of the children of the Revolution, the violent crushing of all opposition, the clandestine nuclear program, It is all making sense! My hat is off to Mousavi but I do not know about the wisdom of challenging the so called Supreme leader. Especially after he outlawed you! What's next?
Mir Hossein Mousavi is challenging the government once again calling for an anti-government rally to prove the strength of his opposition Green Movement. He is telling his followers to put up or shut up as well as laying down the gauntlet. The call comes just days after Ayatollah Ali Khamenei told Mousavi and other opposition leaders that they were now excluded from the regime.
Mousavi's challenge to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to allow opposition forces to demonstrate is a clear act of defiance. It follows the Ayatollah's harsh words to the Assembly of Experts pronouncing opposition leaders officially outside the regime. Outlaws!
The mere appearance of Mousavi's words on his website is a show of strength against the government which has systematically muzzled the opposition press, imprisoned journalists, and waged a noisy propaganda campaign to drown out all other voices. Despite the increasingly heavy handed regime and threats to his life he calls them and his followers out.
Mousavi's decision to throw down the gauntlet against the supreme leader quickly drew the applause of many supporters on his Facebook website as well as many enthusiastic comments on a myriad of other opposition sites. This is ramping up!
Former Iranian President Abolhasan Bani Sadr who lives in exile in Paris called Mousavi's statement a clear break with the regime. He calls Mousavi's statement a direct act of defiance to Khamenei, along with Karroubi's challenge several days ago to hold a referendum. He argues that Mousavi is challenging Ayatollah Khamenei by warning the Ayatollah not to silence him or to kill him, because he will go on defying him.
The former president asserts that the Iranian government is "now at war with its own people" and you know for a fact it is! Top Iranian Opposition Leader Mousavi Challenges Supreme Leader
As this ratchets up instigated by the Basiji and the IRGC another reminder! You know how I feel about Iran's Revolutionary Guard Command, but now there are many pro Government citizens calling for the death of those against the current regime and the IRGC! Like most I believe the election was stolen. I originally though it had to be known right to the top but I do not think so. I now thing even Ayatollah Khamenei was duped about the stolen election. Some not all of the clerics have been dragged into bed with the IRG!
As you know, the IRGC was set up to protect the ruling authority after 1979 and are supposed to be controlled By Ayatollah Khamenei authority. I know Ahmadinejad and 2/3 of his first 21 member cabinet are ex IRGC members and that simply reinforces that I am right to believe the IRGC has become the final authority not the Supreme leader.
The IRGC is in control of furthering Shiite demands around the Middle East! You know by no what they are doing in Yemen, Iraq, and everywhere they can in the Middle East. I now believe Khamenei is the power behind the crackdown but he is knowingly or unknowingly enforcing a lie! Iran will not give up her nuclear weapons designs and will never give up power or efforts to dominate the Middle East. Ahmadinejad and the IRGC are the driving force and will not relent. Increasing sanctions will only work to defeat all the opposition has done.
You know, I have long said that Iran’s civilian nuclear program is a cover for their nuclear weapons program. You know that Arab leaders feel the same way. They fear a nuclear arms race and I can only conclude that knowing how far along Iran is and how they feel, that they are hedging their bets and an arms race is already under way clandestinely. The only question is when will it become an overt arms race and just how big the Middle East explosion I have been predicting since Bush attacked Iraq will be?
We have been saying since the stolen election that neither side is going to back down and this is only going to end in one way and that is open armed violence on both sides. The only way to avoid it is for Mousavi to back down and I do not see that as a possibility. There is no way the current regime is going to let their drive for nuclear weapons and their version of a new middle east order without Israel and with them on top come to an end. What’s next?
