4 MORE YEARS!!!

Recommended Posts

Rafsanjani has not quit his post, Majlis speaker Larijani has publicly congratulated A-Nejad on his win and Mousawi has not been seen since Friday. The protests are meaningless, A-nejad won the election no matter how much fraud (the figure of 10 million votes being rigged is being thrown around) and that's how it will stay. The supreme leader told Rafsanjani to stop complaining about A-Nejad a short few months ago because "you will be working with him for another 4 years). So in essence there really was no election.

 

PRepare for the progressives in positions of power to be arrested on corruption, adultery or something serious and A-Nejads people to move in to positions of power, positions that were previously staffed by anti-A-Nejad people.

 

Also expect long term ripple effects of the modern and social elite to lose even more faith and support for the clerical system of power in Iran.

Yes, the president of Iran's own election monitoring commission has declared the result invalid and called for a do-over. That is huge news: when a regime's own electoral monitors beak ranks, what chance does the regime have of persuading anyone in the world or Iran that it has democratic legitimacy? Second:

Stratfor is reporting that Ayatollah Ali Akbar Hashemi-Rafsanjani, head of the Expediency Council, has resigned. Though unconfirmed, the report is saying that Rafsanjani is resigning from his position as head of the Expediencey Council, NOT his position as the leader of the Assembly of Experts, which has oversight responsibility over the office of the Supreme Leader and would be responsible for naming Ayatollah Khamenei’s successor.

Where did you get that from? As far as I'm aware the head of the GC hasn't annulled the result at all. Mousavi spoke with the SL, he and Karroubi have lodged complaints with the GC and Rezaie has also claimed voting irregularities (however he has also congratulated A-nejad on his win). This has then resulted in Kamenei to ask the GC to investigate. This also happened with Khatami in 2004 where so man reformists were excluded from running. Khatami complained, the SL stepped in, a few more were allowed to run again but the situation remained much the same. As it also will this time. The result won't change and it will further legitimise A-Snake's win.

 

Rafsanjani did not quit his position in the EC. Raf is a big anti-A-Nejad player and is worried that A-Nejad will now come after him. So he is right now busying himself behind the scenes shoring up his position before A-Snake can get to him.

 

A-Nejad postponed his trip to the SCO meeting in Russia today, though. That is an indication on how seriously he is taking the challenge to his election victory.

 

Does this increase the chance of a strike on Iran by Israel or/and US? Yes, but not in any significant way, it just means nothing improved so the chance is still there where the field would have re-adjusted had Mousavi got in. All the constraints on the US (who really are the final arbiter of a strike on Iran) still remain after the election as they did before. Pakistan is a much more immediate concern for the US, then Afghanistan, then Iraq, then maybe Iran as long as the Russians aren't making life too difficult.

 

The game for Mousavi is not over yet, but even if I was a millionaire I still wouldn't put a cent on him to come out on top.

 

 

PS, STRATFOR never said Raf had definitely quit his post. The only ting that was said was that there were unconfirmed reports that he had and that the matter will have close attention paid to it to confirm the reports. IT was confirmed not long after that initial sitrep that he had not quit either post.

Current: up to 100 000 defying protest ban, sniper has just opened fire on crowd, 1 confirmed dead by foreign journalist.

 

That will add motivation to the movement, that was a slip up by the establishment. If you don't crush them they will keep coming, if you agitate them, they will gain supporters. Will be interesting to see if A-Dog still goes to Russia tomorrow, Moscow really wants him there and the whole SCO and observers are there as well. If he doesn't go it won't look good for him as the new leader. He needs to show strength by not being concerned by the reaction otherwise he won't look legitimate.

have you guys seen that 7-point alleged manifesto of the revolution?

 

A copy was sent from Tehran to filmmaker and activist Ardeshir Arian, who has translated it for Pajamas Media:

 

The Seven-Point Manifesto calls for:

 

1. Stripping Ayatollah Khamenei of his supreme leadership position because of his unfairness. Fairness is a requirement of a supreme leader.

 

2. Stripping Ahmadinejad of the presidency, due to his unlawful act of maintaining the position illegally.

 

3. Transferring temporary supreme leadership position to Ayatollah Hussein-Ali Montazery until the formation of a committee to reevaluate and adjust Iran’s constitution.

 

4. Recognizing Mir Hossein Mousavi as the rightfully elected president of the people.

 

5. Formation of a new government by President Mousavi and preparation for the implementation of new constitutional amendments.

 

6. Unconditional release of all political prisoners regardless of ideology or party platform.

 

7. Dissolution of all organizations — both secret and public — designed for the oppression of the Iranian people, such as the Gasht Ershad (Iranian morality police).

 

kinda doubt #6 will ever happen.

 

The cover of the NY Post today said "Turban Warfare." The Post continues to be my favorite newspaper to read while taking a shit.

Mohammad Asgari, who was responsible for the security of the IT network in Iran's interior ministry, was killed yesterday in Tehran.

 

Asgari had reportedly leaked results that showed the elections were rigged by government use of new software to alter the votes from the provinces.

 

Asgari was said to have leaked information that showed Mousavi had won almost 19 million votes, and should therefore be president.
