June 8, 2005 -Iran following Soccer Victory
Regime Change Iran ^ | 6.8.2005 | DoctorZin

Posted on 06/08/2005 2:55:47 PM PDT by DoctorZIn

BREAKING NEWS! Massive Unrest in Iran following soccer victory - PLEASE SPREAD THE NEWS

DoctorZin’s SPECIAL REPORT!

Iran won an important soccer victory that assures they will play for the World Cup.

This has led to massive celebrations and unrest throughout Iran.

The pro-democracy forces in Iran make good use of such celebrations as it is difficult for security forces to manage the massive crowds.

The inability of the security forces to deal effectively with the anti-regime demonstrations only encourages other Iranians to join them.

This is likely to strengthen pro-democracy forces for the battles of the coming weeks.

The mainstream media is again largely ignoring these events.

I believe international reporters in Iran are ignoring these reports because the fear losing their press credentials.

Please spread the word so Iranian bloggers will know that the world is watching!!!Here is a sampling of our reports.

Reuters reported that, Iran Police were on Alert Before World Cup Qualifier Match.We reported that if the regime cracks down on anti-regime demonstrators it risks angering the Iranian people. If the regime does nothing, it encourages people to demonstrate. Either way, this is great news for the Iranian people.

Following the 1-0 victory people throughout Iran took to the streets.

The first reports were via live radio broadcasts:

Radio Sedaye Iran, Hat Tip to the FREEPER persiandissident.

On the PHONE Live, I am transcribing:

· People are dancing in the streets of Iran and screaming "Down with dictatorship."

· It's like a wedding.

· In Tehran traffic completely stopped.

· People are leaving the cars and dancing.

· Tearing up campaign posters....

Karaj....

· People everywhere....

· Laughing, dancing...

· NO ELECTION POSTERS left anywhere ....

· No police, bassji , so people dancing....

· He wants to walk towards the prison....

Announcer:

· The former Shah’s son, Reza Pahlavi, going on a 3 day hunger strike...

· You can hear people on the phone.....

· Cars completely stopped and are walking...

· Burning posters being found...

· People "guns, tanks, no use" screaming against candidates....

· Karrubi, Rafsanjani pictures ablaze....The next reports came from the Student Movement:

Iranians are shouting nationalistic slogans or destroying the advertisements made by regime's candidates for the upcoming sham Presidential elections.

Then the reports came in that the Soccer celebration turned political.

This has led to clashes with the regimes security forces.

I have many more reports and will continue to post reports as they come in. It will be a long night in Iran. DoctorZin

Wow, this is great news! I had my hair cut by an Iranian immigrant for the first time today. She was really cute, friendly and is so hopeful that the hardline government will change soon. She's worried about her family and misses them terribly.

The kind of men who are currently controlling Iran are the same kind of men who are currently trying to terrorize Iraq. These men won't be defeated by street demonstrations of citizen unhappiness. If the mad mullahs thought they were in trouble, they'd order troops to open fire on the crowds.

That's the unpleasant truth.

In Iran, a PhD means... Pizza Hut Delivery work

5/31/05 ME Times Added to 'Arab Governments and the Causes of Terrorism'. The Islamic republic, home to some of the most qualified young people in the Middle East, has been exporting its brainpower at an alarming rate - with an estimated 150,000 frustrated graduates taking flight every year. Many, over a million, have come to the US, where they become prosperous and free, and a few have setup satellite broadcastings (privately funded by Iranian expatriates), which illegally beam into Iran and which were recently blocked by Iran's buddy Cuba. You see, it isn't just the so-called 'American Culture', which is exported abroad, but the culture of any group that comes here and prospers and then returns or influences their homeland. The reason? As emphasized, the Iranians that come here are free to create wealth and keep the wealth they accumulate with their own labor - free from government intervention and with equal protection under the law. With our burdensome tax rate here (if you add up all the sales, income, SS, Medicaid, phone taxes etc..), it tells you how bad things really are in some of these other countries. So what's government like in Iran? "The government needs to prepare the ground for private sector growth to absorb the workforce, but the problem is that 80 percent of the economy is controlled by the government. The government is the biggest rival of the private sector."

They're not the same...the mullahs in Iran only care about staying in power, they're not fanatics.

If there are huge, nationwide, demonstrations the choices will be to wait them out, step down, or take violent action. The thinking is that they won't take violent action because they do have good relations with Europe and Russia and that would ruin them. If they try to wait them out they can, if they keep control of the oil.

I'm imagining a scenario whereby we manipulate the World Cup through bribes, intimidation, "accidents", etc... and engineer a victory for Iran. This would send the pro-democracy forces in Iran into orbit and lead to an overthrow of the current regime.

If I ran the CIA I would do this, for sure.

I heard that the CIA has developed a remote control soccer ball. It is linked to a geosynchronous orbiting satellite and little Billy Smith, age 6, will use his next generation Xbox to make sure that Iran wins the world cup.

True, but their form of government is most similar to those found throughout the middle east. All Middle Eastern (better term then arab) governments (excluding Israel) share similar qualities:

1. They are socialistic
2. They have no freedom of religion
3. They have no separation of church and state
4. They oppress women
5. They create external enemies in order to justify internal tyrannies
6. They are non representative governments
7. They sponsor, directly or indirectly, terrorism
8. No freedom of speech or press

I think the socialistic nature of these countries is one of the most underreported facts the MSM ommits. IMO, the socialist tyranny is what is causing nearly all the problems there.

Can't agree with you on that. They're fanatics by most definitions of the word.

And I'm fairly certain that they'd order crowds fired upon if they thought they were in danger of being overthrown. I hope, though, that it doesn't come to that. The Iranian people have suffered enough.

Is it me or what? I see pictures of what appears to be happy soccer fans. I see no clenched fists or any indication that there is a political riot. As I stated in an earlier post; "Sounds like normal behavior after a soccer win. The same thing goes on in England and Germany. (Not Political) (Barricades, armed rebellion, now thats political.)" Every time I bring up these posts to my Iranian friend he thinks I'm crazy. He's no fan of the present regime. He wants those "arab" mullahs out too.

They show celebrations, less often unrest.

The regime bans celebrations after matches. The entire idea of a celebration after a soccer match is against the policies of the regime.

In england and germany they don't shout 'down with blair' and burn his pictures nor do they do that with schroeder in germany.

Just because your friend hasn't heard of them doesn't mean they aren't going on.

Awesome.........and you're dead right; this HAS happened several times in the past and the mainstream media in the West totally ignored it. Unbelievable.

I've said it here before, and I'll say it again to the "Iran Bashers". Iran is a wonderful country with wonderful people. They are NOT Arabs; they are Persian. They are also overWHELMingly pro-Western. They have a young population (huge percentage under the age of 25) and they despise the ruling theocracy.

After 9/11.......there were two countries where sympathetic, pro-US demonstrations were held: 1) Israel, 2) Iran...believe it or not.

God bless these people, and I pray they succeed in bloodlessly overthrowing this despicable, 12th century theocracy.

"I think we will never forgive 'Carter' for his dirty deeds, he is one of the main reasons for all miseries of Iran and the USA in the past 27 years!!!"

Thank you, Xerxes, for the photos of the demonstrations in your country. And what a really great 'home page' you have here on FR! I read every word, and I agree with what you say about Carter. It is true, Carter was primarily responsible for the 'regime change' allowed the mullah's to gain political control in Iran. The stupid peanut farmer from Plains, GA couldn't even pronounce the name of your country correctly - he always said 'I-ran (eye-ran)'.

I know only a little of the history of your proud country, some of it from the Bible. Daniel was a 'captive' in Persia, and it was Darius who was tricked by his ministers into having to throw Daniel into the Lions Den. Daniel was given authority after that, under Darius. Darius ruled the Medes and Persians. Was Darius a Mede or a Persian? And what is the difference? Who were the Medes?

I and many others of us here in the United States wish you and your people well in your zeal to eventually overthrow/depose the mullahs. Some 230 years ago we threw the British out, and my great, great, great, great grandfather was one of those who helped dump tea in Boston harbor, an act that told the British they were no longer welcome. Perhaps the actions today in Iran will be like that Boston Tea Party was then - the basis for a battle cry to freedom!
