The country's highest electoral authority, the Guardian Council, acknowledged on Monday that there were voting irregularities in 50 electoral districts, the most serious official admission so far of problems in the election. But the council insisted the problems do not affect the outcome of the vote.
Earlier Monday, the elite Revolutionary Guard issued its sternest warning so far in the post-election crisis. It warned protesters to "be prepared for a resolution and revolutionary confrontation with the Guards, Basij and other security forces and disciplinary forces" if they continue their near-daily rallies.
The Basij, a plainclothes militia under the command of the Revolutionary Guard, have been used to quell streets protests that erupted after the election result was announced.
The Guard statement ordered demonstrators to "end the sabotage and rioting activities" and said their resistance is a "conspiracy" against Iran. On Sunday, acting joint chief of the armed forces Gen. Gholam Ali Rashid issued a thinly veiled warning to Mousavi, saying "we are determined to confront plots by enemies aimed at creating a rift in the nation.
Mousavi vowed Sunday night to keep up the protests, in defiance of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who holds ultimate power in Iran. In a sermon to tens of thousands on Friday, Khamenei said demonstrators must stop their street protests or face the consequences and he firmly backed Ahmadinejad's victory.
"The country belongs to you," Mousavi's latest statement said. "Protesting lies and fraud is your right."

Obama would be happy. This would clear the way for him to negotiate (i.e., charm) his way to getting the mad mullahs to give up their drive to have nuclear weapons.
Rahm Emmanuel and ACORN are taking notes.
the modern day immortals/praetorian guard and 0bama is NO Miltiades.
Bring on the Mahdi!
Obama is occupied looking for something to apologize for.
This will be America 2012 when Barry loses by one or two percent. Acorn will start riots when democracy does not work in their favor.
If Iran had the 2nd Amendment like we do, the Basij and Revolutionary Guard might not be so bold.
...of course they will...it is in their genes...cats kill squirrels....lunatic islamic mullas kill people...it's just the way they are....they are born ruthless killers.
The only reason that they haven't killed as many protesters as it takes to clear the streets, is that there is still a faint hope that they could be accepted by the "world"...but their natural killer instinct will take over today, all worldly desires gone.
What everybody should all learn from this is that we Americans should never, ever let our government disarm us.
Just think of the blow for freedom which could be struck if only the Iranian protesters were armed.
If he had any decency and common sense, he’d apologize to the people in the streets.
> the modern day immortals/praetorian guard and 0bama is NO Miltiades.
Reminds me more of the SS and the Gestapo.
So, with this news will Obama go out for another ice cream, go golfing, get a burger with Biden, quickly get on a late night comedy show, take his baby’s mama out on an expensive date, apologize to the world for America’s pre-Obama existence or will he just hide?
Will he now be able to wait for his Wednesday night White House orgy or will he celebrate early this week?
I wonder, considering how terribly busy he must be, will those that he bows to understand, if he simply bows to them over the phone?
Those that put that filthy freak into the White House must be having a wonderful day in knowing that whatever he does or doesn’t do... they own.
I guess they would be the same. The SS Leibstandarte AH was the Praetorian Guard of Nazi Germany.
I am so sick of 0zer0 worrying about “meddling” in Iran as pro-democracy demonstrators are being killed.
I grew up in the rural midwest and learned long ago that the only thing you get from straddling a fence is sore crotch. You either have to get on the safe side of the fence and be a bystander, or get on the side where the action is and be a participant.
Everyone can now see who the bystanders are, and who the participants are.
wrongo...obama and his merry group of Nazis want the regime to hold on...they are his type of guys. He must be a little worried but have faith....the rebellion will fail...and be over soon.
The mullahs will still be in power. Islamanzis will keep up their work. Israel will be the new enemy and 78% of American Jewish voters will bow to obama.
He is like Carter, an enabler of benighted bigots, the mad mullahs and their opportunistic supporters.
When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.
“IRAN’S REVOLUTIONARY GUARD”
Sounds very Socialist-like to me. I am sure that the tingle up Chris Mathew’s leg has found it’s way to the Great Zero one when he heard that.
