Iran Daily Revolution Grief, Pt. 2
From Flowersophy, my source in Turkey, comes these depressing news items east of the Eden we've made of Iraq:
People fighting with mullah's security forces in Valiasre square in Tehran now.
Iran state tv says Saudi govt also behind protests.| Seems Iran is the only country NOT behind protests! (First we find out these Sunni Arabs financed the 9/11 terrorist attacks, now they're backing the Shi'ite regime in Iran? Is this really about OPEC's stability?)
MESSAGE TO BASIJI, GUARDS, ARMY What happens to you WHEN the regime falls? We have YOUR photos. THE WORLD saw you KILLING US.
Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Ali, top shia cleric in Iraq, joins worldwide alarm over Khamenei handling of protests. (If true, this is another major crack in the Inner Party.)
Iran TV trying to say no violence yesterday & says the woman on CNN was fake. They are very worried, keep going
MORE DETAIL ON REGIME CHANGE FROM WITHIN IRAN. KEEP UP PROTESTS PLEASEhttp://bit.ly/17X4eP (According to this article, Rafsanjani has enough votes to shit can Khamenei, which may or may not mean regime change.)
Don't read CNN (i add Fox news). They get their news from Iran state TV. Follow BBC, BBC Persian (I concur. Even CNN's anchor, when listening to that frightened woman last night over the phone, looked as if he didn't know whether to shit or wind his watch.)
From other Twitter sources:
Where is the UN on Iran? Claudia Rosett on the thundering silence: http://tr.im/pHO4
What is big difference between our awareness of events of #iranelection vs killings in Darfur? Lack of connectivity there?
RT Iran: Today, at Neda's grave whoever had a green sign got arrested right away.
RT from Iran: Persian Kiwi is safe hiding and far from computer (This is good news. I've been following him closely since he's actually on the streets and has proven to be a reliable eyewitness reporter on Twitter.)
Tehran Mousavi Protests Iran Revolution - Breaking News Protest Timeline http://r.ieves.com/g1.aspx (Updated only 'till yesterday, tho.)
PostWorldNews Possible Runoff Vote in Iran between Mousavi and Ahmadinejad? http://tr.im/pCyi (I don't see that happening unless Khamenei is toppled from power.)
Khamenei faces battle of wills (a late-breaking report by CNN's Christiane Amanpour, who writes, "They are rounding people up and, as it was chillingly put to me, in Iran's prisons 'we have room for all of them.' In addition protestors are being paraded 'confessing and repenting' on Iranian state TV.".)
