Of course I concede you could be correct. But what would that make the opposition? Crazy? A mass hallucination? They are wanting a non dictatorial
government, many people would call that the "correct" one. And when dealing with a tyrannical, violent government, such as in Iran--- the MOST
likely explanation is that those who oppose are threatened and hurt, thus, there are tons of "government supporters". You can make a blanket
statement, but one needs to consider the circumstances.
So from what I'm reading you are implying that the government has caused the reported the approx. 1 mill. to demonstrate by means of intimidation?
This is highly unlikely, and a bad tactic. They are being labelled by dissenters as oppressive, so if they act oppressive towards their supporters, it
would would make them out to be exactly what oppressors are claiming their current administration to be.
For such contradictory policy to work, one would have to assume that Iranians are mentally challenged, and I don't be believe this to be the case.
Furthermore, what means of covert intimidation would be effective enough to cause their supporters to take to the streets? Armed guards ushering
people out of hundreds of thousands of homes, herding them into the fray? Any such action would no doubt add to the anti-establishment's base of
The Iranians elected Mahamoud A. in an election. It was then erroneously reported that the election was a fraud, which is what cnn reported. They did
not report the proceeding realization that it actually was not a fraud.
So basically, whatever government Iranians wish to have is none of our business. One could easily make the case that our western leaders are taking
orders from people behind the curtain, which is of course what people claim to be happening-the theologist elite ruling from behind the curtain. Only
difference is, our elite happens to be international corporate interests.
It seems to me that these same corporate interests have much to gain from instability in Iran. CIA sources have helped bring this "rebelion" to
youtube, this is fact. What isn't exactly known is where their involvement ends and the free will of these protestors begins.
