Theocratic crowd control

Hat tip: Rayeman kojast? (Where is my vote?)

Howrad, keep the news on Iran coming. You're doing a great job.

However, the Iranian people are doing a better job of demanding their voice in their government. God Bless all of them.

Hey, Barry - Achmedinejad called and wants to make sure you don't cook the Hebrew National brats at the Fourth of July picnic.

Oh, and he asked for a spot to park his truck - right in front of the MSG billets.

We are governed by cowards.

Guy Sorman's essay in City Journal entitled "Destroyed By Communism" strikes me as perhaps having instructive parallel lessons that can be applied to the Iranian regime and the plight of its victims:

It looks to me like the international community is increasingly rallying behind Ahmenijad and Khamenei. Indonesia (the world's largest and most important muslim country . . . and a much respected free democracy) has done so: http://www.antaranews.com/en/view/?i=1245035060&c=NAT&s=

So have President Karzai of Afghanistan, President Lula of Brazil (another large important free democracy), President Hu of China, Russia, Turkey (an important free democracy in the middle east.)

So far President Obama, Europe, India, Japan, Australia and a few other countries are holding out, but for how long?

Does anyone know where Thailand, South Korea and Mexico are on the Iranian elections?

Have Khamenei and Ahmenijad already won? So many countries wouldn't endorse Ahmenijad unless they were sure he and Khamenei would prevail.

I think its time to start returning some of those captured weapons and EFPs that Al'Quds has been supplying to Iraqi insurgents and maybe offer them to some of the resistance groups that seem to be getting their asses handed to them right now. The fact is that no one is coming to help them and "peaceful protests" are not going to cut it. If you ask me I would consider it poetic justice the first time a pick up truck full of Basij Militia men had their legs cut out from under them by a molten copper disc stamped "made in Iran". Of course thats a pretty tall order from an administration that can't even muster up some harsh words of critisism against the (to quote his words) Supreme Leader. gimme a break.

Patterns...In his statement today, June 25th, Mousavi used "foreigner(s)" or "foreign" four times, ending with "The foreign enemy, with the collaboration of its ignorant and greedy helpers inside the country, is trying to attribute the demands of this great and spontaneous movement to those from outside the system."

What could be more predictable than anand dropping to his knees to fellate these savages? All it takes for anand's adoration is to have murder in your heart for the Jews.
