The US media almost entirely ignores news regarding the Islamic Republic of Iran. As Tony Snow of the Fox News Network has put it, this is probably the most under-reported news story of the year. But most Americans are unaware that the Islamic Republic of Iran is NOT supported by the masses of Iranians today. Modern Iranians are among the most pro-American in the Middle East.
There is a popular revolt against the Iranian regime brewing in Iran today. Starting June 10th of this year, Iranians have begun taking to the streets to express their desire for a regime change. Most want to replace the regime with a secular democracy. Many even want the US to over throw their government.
The regime is working hard to keep the news about the protest movement in Iran from being reported. Unfortunately, the regime has successfully prohibited western news reporters from covering the demonstrations. The voices of discontent within Iran are sometime murdered, more often imprisoned. Still the people continue to take to the streets to demonstrate against the regime.
In support of this revolt, Iranians in America have been broadcasting news stories by satellite into Iran. This 21st century news link has greatly encouraged these protests. The regime has been attempting to jam the signals, and locate the satellite dishes. Still the people violate the law and listen to these broadcasts. Iranians also use the Internet and the regime attempts to block their access to news against the regime. In spite of this, many Iranians inside of Iran read these posts daily to keep informed of the events in their own country.
This daily thread contains nearly all of the English news reports on Iran. It is thorough. If you follow this thread you will witness, I believe, the transformation of a nation. This daily thread provides a central place where those interested in the events in Iran can find the best news and commentary. The news stories and commentary will from time to time include material from the regime itself. But if you read the post you will discover for yourself, the real story of what is occurring in Iran and its effects on the war on terror.
I am not of Iranian heritage. I am an American committed to supporting the efforts of those in Iran seeking to replace their government with a secular democracy. I am in contact with leaders of the Iranian community here in the United States and in Iran itself.
If you read the daily posts you will gain a better understanding of the US war on terrorism, the Middle East and why we need to support a change of regime in Iran. Feel free to ask your questions and post news stories you discover in the weeks to come.
If all goes well Iran will be free soon and I am convinced become a major ally in the war on terrorism. The regime will fall. Iran will be free. It is just a matter of time.
PS I have a daily ping list and a breaking news ping list. If you would like to receive alerts to these stories please let me know which list you would like to join.
As Barry Goldwater might have said it: No, you Islamofascist terrorists, our grandchildren will not live under Islamic terror; your grandchildren will live under freedom.
The russians are totally committed to secureing a warm water port in the Persian Gulf. They have committed themselves to an illegal Nuclear program designed ultimately to deliver fissionable material to make atomic bombs. Plain and simple we shot ourselves squarely in the foot on this one. If we had given the right signals initially we could have successfuly promoted a massive student riot country wide and would have brought down Katami's government right under their noses!
Now we have a burdensome debt and nothing essentially to show for it. Saddam laughs us to derision and continues to direct and harass our troops in the field. If we had gone into iran as we should have in the firsr place they would not have had any opportunity to bury or spirit away illegal WMD's that they surely do have; courtesy of the russians. Now we are forced to fight a rear guard action of massive proportions. The iranians have got to be taken out and their Sunburn Missiles with them that russia supplied. The six Nuclear Reactors need to be neutralized immediately. You don't have to worry guys we will find WMD's in iran even Barney Fife couldn't miss on this one!
Physicist Prather lays on the sarcasm pretty thick for science.
Leaping to the defense of poor little Iran against every liberal's favorite villain du jour Sharon.
Russia has been aiding Iran's ballistic missile program for years.
Despite threats of sanctions, Clinton did squat.
Where was Miss Pithy Prather then?
Bill Gertz, Betrayal: How the Clinton Administration Undermined American Security, Regnery, 1999, Chapter Eight: From Russia with Technology, pp 167-190, relates Russia's aid to Iran and Clinton's words not deeds approach to sanctions.
One and a half years after President Yeltsin told President Clinton that ballistic missile technology transfers to Iran would stop, it still continues. . . .Now time is running out; the stakes are great. . .Unless this problem is solved we see a potential trainwreck in our relations.
White House National Security Adviser Samuel Berger to Russian Security Council Secretary Andrei Kokoshin during a closed-door Kremlin meeting in May 1998.
Of course Clinton did nothing and today Iran's missile force is the major threat to security in the region.
Prather hides behind Vlad, holding his coat, urging the KGB enforcer to show Sharon how the cow ate the cabbage.
Russia has not been particularly effective in Chechnya, nor at submarine maneuvers; as for Afghanistan, look at the record.
What Israel did to Iraq in 1980 was nothing less than prevent a nuclear attack in the region.
Yet Prather incredibly utters such purse-swinging nelly crap as "The Israelis and the neo-crazies were ecstatic."
With half the generator missiles hitting our Baghdad hotel being Russian, it's hardly time for cozying up to Uncle Vlad.
After all, there were two Russian generals aiding Saddam before the war, brazenly stating, "We didn't come to Baghdad to drink coffee."
Who needs World Net Daily and Pinky Prather? Vastly preferable is a freedom-loving physicist who showed true grit:
