They Killed Neda but Not Her Voice
Michelle Malkin ^ | 06/21/2009 | Michelle Malkin

Posted on 06/21/2009 8:46:25 AM PDT by fiscon1

Her name was Neda, which means “voice” in Farsi. According to numerous online accounts picked up by media outlets worldwide, she was shot in the streets by Iranian state police while protesting today. This is what repression looks (warning: graphic):

This makes you wonder what Obama is thinking when he appears to be throwing Israel under the bus in favor of radical Islamic states. Maybe Michelle and daughters should be wearing Burkas.

I watched that video without knowing that she would die right on the screen.

The blood didn’t bother me (being trained in medicine) but that shot of her looking right at me, will haunt me for a long time.

We dont want to meddle. However, I havent noticed the Iranians concern about meddling in Iraq when they supply high powered explosives that kill American soldiers with IEDs.

Iran is a primitve, savage, half-civilized nation. In primitve, savage, half-civilized nations, people are occasionally slaughtered by regime thugs. If this was the Congo or Haiti, Malkin would not have batted an eyelash. Why is Ms. Full Metal Jacket so shocked over this “Voice” person being killed in Tehran, as opposed to Kinshasa or Port-au-Prince? Somehow, Malkin reminds me of the Claude Rains character in “Casablanca” who is “shocked” that gambling is going on.

If there were Iranian soldiers fighting against a pro-US government in Mexico, I’d imagine we’d be sending the Mexican Army some lethal goodies to kill Iranian soldiers (at the very least).

Porn is fiction . This is the truth. Obama went for an ice cream as this girl was shot.

So what. Maybe he took a piss afterwards, also. If he didn’t go for the ice cream or the piss, would the girl be alive? Like I said, political porn. Gets people worked up for nothing.

Actually, as a whole, Iranian citizens are the most well-educated of all the Middle Eastern countries. I certainly wouldn't call them "primitive." They have a large population of young people, many pro-Western, who have obviously been sitting on ther hands and waiting for their chance for a long time.

I just wish this had happened a year ago when we had a real President in the White House and not a fraudulent interloper.

Oh puhleeze. Mousav's supporters are college students and yuppies--these are a small percentage of Iran's demographic. The vast majority of Iranians are superstitious and primitive-minded. Don't forget, the Shah was overthrown because he wanted to modernize Iran, and the Iranian public was horrified at the very thought of modernity.

Call it what you want. The reality is that Obama is empowering, and friends with, the people who saw her face and then shot her.

The only porn here is people whining that they cannot look at this. She and her people are living it, but your delicate sensiblities are what REALLY matters? Ron Paul types think it’s too much to ask an American to even offer them moral support.

Use your head. If Obama came out with a “tear down this wall” type of speech, it would be the kiss of death for Mousavi. It would make him look like an American tool. Pat Buchanan (a true conservative) said the exact same thing not a half-hour ago on McLaughlin Group.

How is this analogous to the Iranian involvement in Iraq killing our soldiers?

Pat Buchannan is a smart man, but he has the old school chatechism Jew-Hating disease. It leads him to almost every opinion he has. He probably thinks supporting change in Iran would be a secret plot to help the Joooooooos,,

Simple, if you actually took the time to think about. The Iranians don’t like having what they see as an enemy army next door. Why we are there, well, that’s a subject for another thread entirely.

I knew someone would dust off the worn out old canard (and it IS a canard) about Pat B. being an “anti-semite”, just because his lips are not firmly locked around Israel’s jock.

It's not porn. You have eyewitness, real-time video of an innocent civilian dying after being shot in the chest, and you call it porn.

The Shah was overthrown with the connivance of Dhimmi Carter.

Interesting that you appear to be backing Carter's second coming, and the theocracy Carter started, over unarmed civilians being gunned down like dogs.

But let me guess, you oppose Palin because she'd institute religious control of the state...

Proof?
His silence in the face of things like mullahs sanctioning murder in the streets, his statements that he will meet Akmenidjad with no pre-conditions, his embracing the iranian mullahs position on Israel, HIs acceptance of the mullahs building nukes, the photos of his warm greetings towards Akmenidjad’s best ally, Hugo Chavez. Take your pick.

Now, your proof that he is not friendly with the oppressors, and is not empowering them?

I watched that video, and (among many emotions and thoughts it brought up) it made me realize one thing ...it is very important to always ensure your loved ones know how you feel about them, that you always ensure you keep important things important, and that you always ensure your heart is in the right place. You just never really know what will happen in the very next second.

It makes perfect sense. The Mullahs hate Israel and Buchanan hates Israel so it's no surprise that the liberals favorite Jew hating conservative would defend the thugs running Iran.

Those are the same thugs btw, who are supplying weapons to kill American troops in Iraq. But you knew that. That's why you're defending them.

You're a stinking liberal troll.
