Iran thinks that america had a large part to play in bringing unrest to the country and trying to change the government.

Why is everyone saying it is fixed. How would the american media know? Its because americans where expecting a different result, and the only way you know that is if your part of the process, which is supposed to be illegal.

Reality is formed only by those who believe it...

there is no reality outside of belief...


Stop blaming the passion of the youth and passing them off as fools... they are humans, and each of us Humans have the right to believe the way we wish...

There is nothing foolish about that unless you believe in some sort of absolute reality...

Why would the Iranian government censor the Media?

They want to censor the media because the result was VALID? That makes complete sense to me.

Why would riot police be on the streets beating people with clubs and sticks?

Because the election was run flawlessly? That makes perfect sense to me.

Why would Mousavi be kept under house arrest?

Not WHY but HOW could all of the votes be counted by HAND two hours after the election?

U.S. Persian Gulf forces cautioned on Iran -

See link - www.liveleak.com...


U.S. military commanders in the Middle East were sent a message reminding American forces to maintain discipline and prudence if they encounter any Iranian military forces during potential unrest surrounding Iran's presidential election, CNN has learned. An incident involving Iranian speed boats and U.S. warships raised maritime tensions in 2008. This so far is the on More..ly acknowledged U.S. military reaction to the unfolding situation in Iran.

85% turnout to vote. People don't come out to vote in record numbers to keep the existing government in power. They come out to vote for change.

Moussavi was initially told by Iran’s Interior Ministry that he was the projected winner. A few hours later, the Ministry reversed itself declaring a massive victory for Ahmadinejad.

The Iranian people voted for change but the real people in power did not want that change so they adjusted the election results to their favor.

Yup, and he looked pretty POed when she brought it up.


Here's another article:

news.yahoo.com...


On Saturday, Mousavi, a 67-year-old former prime minister, released a Web message saying he would not "surrender to this manipulation." Authorities responded with targeted detentions, apparently designed to rattle the leadership of Mousavi's "green" movement — the trademark color of his campaign. The detentions include the brother of former reformist President Mohammad Khatami and two top organizers of Iran's largest reformist party, the Islamic Iran Participation Front: the party's secretary-general and the head of Mousavi's youth cyber campaign. Mohammad Reza Khatami and the two party activists were released Sunday.


Throwing people in jail left and right, clearly the sign of a legitimate election right??

Amadinajhad says to her that the Iranian people "can vote for any candidate they like..."

Yeah right whatever you say Mahmoud....as long as those candidates are all vetted and controlled by the ruling council and grand ayotolah that is...

Hmmm who shall we vote for if they're all working for the same team...?
Screw it lets riot!

Good questions by Christiane Amanpour.

Why is it people in Iran want change and now America gets blamed for rigging the election? Doesn't make any sense.

Unless you know they sent Acorn over to Iran to register people to vote.


Why can't things actually be as they seem? The only vote rigging that happen was the Ayatollah wanted Amahinjad to win and that wasn't the outcome of the election is my guess, so the Supreme leader made it happen.

Why couldn't it be Israel that rigged the vote, or Saudi Arabia, or Russia, why does it have to be America, every country does the same things that America has done in the past.

Yeh, I really like the way she handles herself.

I love how Amadinajhad refuses to mention Moussavi's name. He always tends to mention all opposition canidates as if there were many who got a small percentage of the vote and not one who whooped his azz.

[edit on 14-6-2009 by Silcone Synapse]


That's my worst guess actually. I am not sure what is happening, it's very confused now.
I fear the regime let the riots happen in order to draw the 'real' opponents and catch them. And no one will see them again.
I feel sad for this youth, I am really upset, they are being deceived.

Mousavi inciting riots against Ahmadinejad or the Ayatollahs is impossible ! He is with them, all the way, he's been for decades.

This is what I think too,the regime allows these protests onto the streets in order to identify and deal with the people who disagree with the election result.
The protests/riots have gone too far now to stop,for if these people do not achieve thier objectives they will surely be arrested and tortured.Maybe family members as well.
I just hope the people can win.For thier own sakes.
They are putting thier lives on the line here,and i respect them.

Americans are behind an uprising against a rigged and stolen election?

I don't have much of a problem with that.


You don't have a problem with that eh? Because it seems so ethical right?
You actually think the Government has a heart and is hurt by an unfair game in another country?


.....or maybe the Government was trying to get the other guy in office....

It feels better to believe that the Government wants good health for all, education, wealth and happiness, and above all, they want all the other countries to party it up and do the same thing so we're all happy.

And we'll destroy the "evil" people who try to stop it, because we're a kind and just people....

you shouldn't confuse the People...with the Government....

I just talked with some of my Baha'i' Iranian friends here in Virginia and they are all simutanously riveted by what is happening and deeply worried about their Baha'i' brethern and families there. The state treats Baha'i''s harshly there and have accused them of treason before so they fear that this could be used as an excuse for a pogram there.

TWITTER inside Iran are giving reports that tanks are being brought in. Sounds like Tienanmen Square all over again.

Obama remains silent on the issue.Our Vice President has made a statement. Still waiting on Obama to make a statement.
