Usurper President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the former Iranian President who staged a military coup in order to retain power after he was beaten into 3rd place in the presidential election has vowed that the USA will regret its criticism of the crackdown on the legitimate protests of the people (who had in fact voted for Mousavi and Kharoubi as president).
In very threatening language he stated:
“The response of the Iranian nation will be crushing. The response will cause remorse.”
Despite the harsh crackdown, the people of Iran continue their nightly protest as they shout from the rooftop: “Allahu Akbar” and “Death to the dictator” and “death to Khamenei”. It is true to say that in some ways the regime is broken because the people no longer have trust in the unelected Supreme Leader and the unelected Guardian Council. Even so, the basij have taken to shooting the rooftop protesters, so there is more turmoil to come.
At the same time, it should be noted that whilst things seemed to be quieter, this is due no doubt to the fact that thousands have been arrested by the regime and have been taken to secret locations or to Evin prison, where they face brutal torture until they “confess”. Meanwhile the families of those who have been brutally slain by an evil and corrupt regime are being forced to pay a $3000 bullet tax and to sign a waiver over who is responsible for the death of their children, husband, wife or other family members. It has been rumoured that they forced Neda’s father to sign a form stating that she was killed by protesters, but we all know that this is not true – the protesters do not carry the guns, and the basij who shot her was detained for a time, with his ID removed, and his photograph taken.
In the meantime, many of those who have been using Twitter and the Internet to get out the story of what is happening in Iran have been arrested. It would seem that Yahoo has been assisting the Iran regime by providing details that has helped to round up the bloggers and tweeters. If this story is true then I believe that we should boycott Yahoo in order to teach them a lesson about supporting repressive regimes like China and Iran.
