Thanks for the rant - if you have any links, evidence, or intelligent arguments to put forward that would be great.
Facebook and twitter have both been compromised that many times by countries ranging from Russia, Ukraine, Pakistan to Georgia that the should be
called Tea strainer and Flitter - on top of that facebook was created by the CIA - soooooo.
The CIA has already been acknowledged as compromising the Iranian mobile network with spam sms messages, while Israel was the source of the Twitter
Further, stating that the presidents of countries are the ones who acknowledge or address things for them to be legitimate simply wreaks of
Overall - not sure why I responded to this - should have let it die the death that all ridiculous threads deserve.
I think your response typifies the blatent arrogance, rudeness and dysfunctional reaction that many show on here towards the Iranian election and
I'm also aware that the regime operates a large number of spies on the Internet.
Your ignorant post warrants little in reponse, but I will say this:
The newspaper headline are actual physical newspapers so I cannot post a weblink. The media will probably report on these in the coming days.
I've spoken to Iranian's directly who were in the protests and they tell me that around 3 million people were protesting on particular days, and
even the mayor of Tehran who is part of the regime gave the same figure. My direct contacts have first-hand experience of the protests, and they've
witnessed police/basij brutality, a lot of gunfire, basij smashing people's windows and cars.
Much has been happening underground in Iran and even organising a protest and not turning up wears down the Basij, as the basij are ordered to turn up
I suppose the Iranian's and all of their family I've spoken to directly are all part of the Israeli and CIA spy network!!
The government of a country represents that particular country. The president of the US represents the US. It really is that simple. Is this
concept too difficult for you to understand?!
The CIA and Israel have not admitted to what you claim.
Arguably anybody with authority from one of these countries (US, France) admitting to interference would constitute admittance from one of those
country's. But the proper chain of command has the president at the top I'm afraid.
Can you explain why the youtube videos showing the streets where protests are held and people are being shot by basij are recognised by Iranian's
That makes it irrelevant if somebody else or israeli's posted links to these videos. The Internet is a free system of information, and anybody
posting there does not constitute as valid interference. In fact if Israeli's did post directions to embassy's then good for them.
You may believe nutjobs claiming CIA doing this and that with Israeli help, but I do not. Especially when I have trusted contacts.
So you can see your twitter arguments are pointless. It may leave those without knowledge guessing and unsure, but those with knowledge are not.
