Iran opposition defies ayatollah, schedules protests on Saturday


www.miamiherald.com

Iran's opposition Friday called for a major new protest over the disputed presidential election, defying a demand by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and setting the stage for a potentially violent showdown in the streets with security forces and militias.

I goes on to say how Iranians are shouting death to the dictator from the roof tops!

Man... This is just getting started...



Messages urging the public to converge Saturday for the march through the capital also flooded Twitter, and after dark on Friday, Tehranis took to the rooftops to cry "God is great" and "Death to the dictator" in what Iranian bloggers said were numbers exceeding previous nights.

The sermon by the unelected Khamenei, who wields nearly absolutely power under Iran's constitution, ended any doubt about his alignment with hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. And it made clear he wasn't open to finding a compromise on Mousavi's demand to annul the election based on claims that it was marred by massive rigging.


Khamenei has a very short life ahead of him....

Mark my words... he's on his way down....

Any ideas on what will replace him?

Starred and flagged.

I have no real comments at the moment (i'm quite tired) but i will say that we are indeed living in possibly the maddest moment in human history.

Iran is divided. The youth are defying the clerics dictatorship. Some of the clerics are branded the UK as the source of all evil.

No longer is the USA the axis of evil from a certain point of view. Maybe Obama is softening the blow from the east or even redirecting it as the UK.

The Uk itself is suffocating under strikes, unemployment, heavy poliicing and treacherous government... The recession has hit hard.

Europe is swinging to the right wing extremists (slowly and surely)... Huge proetsts are becoming the norm,

Iraq and Afghan are almost yesterdays news.

We have epidemics and plagues and pirates and mysterious ships. The USA is currently tracking a mysterious North Korean ship. North Korea are sabre rattling (but with drawn blades).

Some say a missile is soon to be pointed at Hawaii, Japan are warning the US.

Meanwhile China and Russia are very quiet.

Have i missed anything out here?

I'm sure they were saying death to America, UK and Israel. Aren't they described as dictators by Iranians?

This is embarassingly embarassing how some people would want a country to divide and kill each other in order to prove that one system is better than another. This just shows how desperate the western world is to proving to their people that the system which has been implemented in their borders are very good and reliable.

It is obviouse that America is interfering in Iranian internal matters and trying hard to create violence because violence creates hate and hate is the medium America needs for its successful foreign policy.

America doesn't realize that another corrupt Shah won't be installed in Iran, it is not possible anymore, get over it, go home, stay in your borders and leave others alone, that is the only means for peace with America, and Americans should be more wise because their empire is about to collapse, when that happens I'll be the first one to laugh.

Being a father, I know that when the children (Russia & China) are quite...they are up to something, and it usually is not good!

If all the protestors do is walk around, chanting..

they will not get anywhere.

The Ayatollah will remain, and Ahmadinejad will stay.

The Ayatollah doesnt care about protests. He knows the people will eveantaully lose there steam.

And they will.

Action must be taken, you have to take a risk, lives will be lost and blood will flow but thats how revolutions occur.

Revolutions dont occur through peaceful marches.

You know, Im glad that the people are defying their govt. The way I see it, the govt doesnt rule the people, the people rule the govt(or it should be that way).
I comend the people of Iran for not putting up with this crap, and to take what is rightfully theirs, not their governments.

I won't be surprised if they kill the protestors with all cameras rolling, it will get the government's point across. It's not like anyone is in a position to go storming in and stop them, the surrounding countries won't want the Iranian population to set any examples for overthrowing a dictatorship.

Why are you blaming America? Jesus! We're damned if we do, and damned if we don't...don't go placing blame on America for this one. Yes, America could have intervened and backed the Iranian protesters, and been blamed for interfering. But instead, America backs off and waits with everyone else to see what happens and Pow! Its America's fault for not playing. This Blame America crap needs to stop...

How is it obvious? You have proof?

America doesn't realize? Said who? You?

You need to provide proof before spouting off and telling Americans what they should and should not be doing.

So true. I'm amazed that people can even blame America anymore now that the black, muslim, socialist, underdog everyman messiah has been elected president. Before America was evil because we had a cowboy running the show, now that we have joined our socialist friends why can't they cut us a little slack?

Yeah right!

As if the US and UK forced people into the street and burn stuff. Give me a break. This only shows how delusional these people are. I mean they pretty much shut down all forms of communications so how exactly did the US and UK ferment this? What they really need to do is grow up and look at themselves and stop blaming everybody else for their own issues.

Exactly, The Iranians shout "Down with the Dictator!" and the Dictator is automatically America? Gimme a break. If it was up to me, America would bring all its troops home, cancel all foreign aid, then sit back and watch. When these other countries start crying because they can't protect themselves, I tell 'em to go ask the Russians or the Chinese for help, see if they will bail you out...

Should we add yesterday's missile launch to the moon? TOO THE MOON???



That just seems like one heck of an out-of-place-event. It's like seeing weather news with around-the-clock, non-stop Tornados, Hurricanes, fires breaking out. Then, all in the midst of mother nature's destruction....Oh look, what a beautiful sunset!

Is that missile really going to the moon?

Is it possible the missile may have something to do with NK's missile launch? Is it possible to launch a missile to orbit, for a preemptive anti-missile attack? Or, launch it into orbit for stand-by, in case it's needed in the next few days?

Does anyone know enough about this? I'm probably way off base here, so go easy on me.

Back on topic, Good Luck to the protesters, the Great Controlling Mullah promised bloodshed. I won't be surprised if America gets blamed for that too. The Iranian protesters have a lot of guts to demonstrate anyway in a "Theocratic Democracy." Americans respect guts.

Revolutions begin with blood being spilled. Iranians chanting death to the dictator are talking about the ayatolla.

USA should not get invovled and as much as i dislike Obamas Socialist ways I am thrilled that he is president and not that retard McCain(would like him for domestic matters ) with his get involved in everyone's business foreign policy.

The US should stay out of it unless the iranian regime starts a killing spree then the UN should go in nad make itself not worthless.

The surrounding countries are Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq! Throw in a little bit of Turkey, Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan and Armenia and that's it.

they weren't...for days Moussavi's supporters have been chanting that, referring to the ayatollah and Achmadinejad. There will be blood and loss of life on both sides, who knows what our reaction will be to it and don't forget how Russia and China will react to it.

Good luck,to the protesters up in Teran I have a feeling that the Mullahs and Amadejad are going to be in the fight of their lives.Don't expect Iran's neighbors to be happy if they overthrow the government especially our good "friends" the Saudis.
