Tens of thousands of Iranians took to the streets to hear what President Mohammad Khatami speech would say. After many threats from the US over the as of yet unfounded claim that Iran is trying to produce nuclear weapons, people take to the streets to show unity and support for their peaceful nuclear aims.

The president gives his guarantee that no nuclear weapons will be produced as they do not agree with the ownership of such things. He did state that Iran would unite in the case of an invasion and invaders would find themselves in a burning hell.

Tens of thousands of Iranians have braved blizzards to attend rallies marking the 1979 Islamic revolution.

The government had urged people to turn out to show support for its nuclear programme amid pressure led by the US.

President Mohammad Khatami told them Iran would become a "burning hell" for any country that invaded it.

The US believes Iran is getting closer to developing nuclear weapons, but Tehran insists its nuclear programme is for peaceful purposes.

'Psychological war'

The biggest demonstration, in Tehran's snowy Azadi square, saw tens of thousands gather to hear their president.

He told them US "threats" of military action were "just part of the psychological war and the consequence of their failures".

He said: "All the people of Iran are united against any attack and any threats. Any invader will find Iran to be a burning hell for them."

The crowds turned out despite the city being virtually paralysed by heavy snowfalls in its worst winter for decades.

The BBC's Francis Harrison in Tehran says those in power want to show they have genuine popular support, unlike, they say, the Taleban in Afghanistan or Saddam Hussein in Iraq.

Mr Khatami had earlier told foreign ambassadors in Tehran: "We give our guarantee that we will not produce nuclear weapons because we are against them and do not believe they are a source of power."

But he added: "We will not give up peaceful nuclear technology."

Well it appears that the Iranian leadership has much support, from the populace, of its plans to continue the production of nuclear power plants. This when thought about is obvious as nuclear energy is a desirable commodity. When so much support for a plan can be seen, one does not find it hard to understand that maybe the whole country would unite in the event of an invasion. If the country were to unite in the event of an attack, invasion would be near to impossible. I personally think an invasion would be an immoral and foolish act.

The link has been updated.


New revolution

The counter-demonstration in Berlin went ahead despite originally being banned for alleged links with the exiled People's Mujahideen opposition, which is branded a terrorist group by the United States and the European Union.

A German court overturned the ban.


Alleged links to terrorist group, very interesting. People in Iran showing support for their leaders and people no longer in Iran wanting to get rid of the leaders. I wonder if it is just a minority who want the leadership of Iran removed.

This was a staged demonstration using mainly professional pro-government protesters.



Millions of Iranians inflicted another heavy slap to the face of the shaky and unpopular Islamic regime by boycotting its "26th anniversary revolution celebration" by staying home, or far from the official gatherings.

In Tehran, the regime was unable to muster more than 70 or 80 thousand professional demonstrators and government employees and schools' students that were paid or forced to show their support for the regime. For reference purposes, there are more than 12-million inhabitants in Tehran, the capital of Iran. An unprecedented heavy snowfall deprived the regime's Governmental TV from the possibility of the usual falsification of the real seize of the official rally and forced it to show close shots and just a partial long shot of the Enghelab avenue.

Thousands of homes shut off their lights from 09:00 PM on Wednesday and Thursday evenings, to show their hatred for the regime. At the same time, hundreds of maverick Iranians seized the occasion, on Wednesday, to go into the streets and tear down many of the regime's electrical propaganda tools in southern, western and eastern parts of the capital, and in the cities of Shiraz, Hamedan and Esfahan.

This is exactly the problem. Is Iran a REAL AND PRESENT threat to the US ? If so, then no issue. Go after it. The entire nation will be united in any action against Iran.

But the US administration should stop this crap about what they think other people want and that it can give it to them by bombs and military action. Let other people decide what they want. If they really want a change, let them ask. Not make great big puff statements and lead an entire generation into a quagmire in the middle east.
