Not all quiet on the eastern front

Not all quiet on the eastern front
: Looking at the news here, with no reports of further student demonstrations, you’d think things have quieted down in Iran. Not so, says Iran-va-Jahan:

The Student protests in Iran are entering their third week and it seems the situation is still far from being under control. Over the past two weeks, more than 8,000 students have been arrested during demonstrations against the regime and religious clerics. At an emergency meeting of the High Council of National Security which took place this week, President Khatami condemned proclamations of senior religious clerics to execute the student leaders, according to the London-based daily A-Sharq Al-Awsat.

Participants at the meeting said Khatami gave a direct warning to the Judiciary Authority and an indirect warning to spiritual leader Ayatollah

    Americans didn’t earn their freedom by demonstrating – they had to fight for it.
    Until the Iranians are willing to do the same (and they show no signs of it), they’ll go the same way of the democracy movement in China.
    Protesting only works against governments with a conscience.

    We ain’t need no stinking American style “regime change”. America has never shown honesty towards Iranian people, on the contrary it has always demonstrated genuine interest in our oil.
    Examples: Removing Mossadegh from power, Reagan’s gifts to Akabar and so many others.
