Ongoing Anti-Regime Protests in Iran
I am still uncertain on where the people demonstrating this past week in Iran want to take this growing movement.
Have they risen up because their votes in a sham s-election, supervised by a terrorist and corrupt regime, did not give the results they wished for? Or have people used the s-elections as an excuse to advance the freedom-fighting movement of Iran by using one of the Islamic Republic's selected candidates, Seyed Mir-Hossein Mousavi (an Islamic Republic servant, who served as PM during the darkest years of this terrorist regime marked by the genocide of political prisoners), as an excuse through which they can voice their rejection of this system?
If the demonstrators truly believe that they can bring change through within this regime by bringing Mousavi to power they will be very disappointed when they realize that Mousavi endorses the foundations of this terrorist regime and will only bring cosmetic changes rather than uprooting the rotten system which has thrived on the Iranian nation's wealth and keeping them in the dark/isolated for the past 30 years.
What I truly hope for is that the blood of innocent Iranians has not been shed because of this criminal Seyed Mir-Hossein Mousavi, and the infighting occuring between different factions within the terrorist Islamic system. I truly hope that people have reached a level of awareness where they see that there is no space for fundamental change within this regime and that they need to bring this regime down and hold a free and fair referendum on the future political system of Iran. I hope that people are not risking their lives for reform, which is a road already tried with the Islamic Republic's smiling mullah Khatami, but that people are fighting for freedom and democracy - to have their human rights restored and respected by a government elected by the people for the people.
Tens of peaceful demonstrators have been shot point-blank or knifed to death by the Islamic Republic's paramilitary force, the "Basij", consisting of foreign merceneries and brainwashed and illiterate religious zelots people from rural areas. Reports from people on the scene confirm that many of these merceneries are Arabs imported from Iraq, Palestine, & Syria with no emotional ties to Iran/Iranians and who won't hesitate to crackdown on the demonstrations in the most savage of ways that they have been trained in. There are many disturbing videos that have been uploaded on youtube and elsewhere in the past few days showing Basiji's, riot police, and members of the various branches belonging to the Islamic Republic's Revolutionary Guard mercilessly attacking defenseless people in the streets (men, women, elderly) and breaking into peoples' homes and beating them for no reasons whatsoever. Hundreds of people across the country have sustained injuries and hospitals continue to receive a steady flow of casualties and injured people. There were reports that hospitals across the country had been given orders by the government not to treat injured Iranians which the regime refers to as "thugs, troublemakers, and hoodlums".
With orders now having been given to the Islamic Republic's security forces to use maximum force the demonstrators will have no choice but to get armed in order to defend themselves and their compatriots who are fighting for their basic rights - their human rights - which this terrorist and anti-Iranian regime has denied them since its inception 30 years ago.
Despite the bloodshed and violence the demonstrations keep growing larger as people find the courage to fight back against the people who are suppressing them and killing their compatriots.
Two of the notable slogans heard on the streets of Iran today are:
DEATH TO THE DICTATOR!
I WILL KILL WHOEVER KILLED MY BROTHER!
