This just in...

We are hearing that once the people heard President Bush supported their efforts everyone was encouraged and it has helped people to decide to join the protests.

More to come...

Iran's cleric-run government has declared war on satellite television and allegedly begun jamming American-based channels

How do you do that? Sat dishes are line-of-sight to the bird; is off-axis jamming possible? Screwing with the LNA off axis?

Maybe they just kill the power grid, the dumb, bearded weirdo bastards. I wanna seem them hanging from lampposts by Sunday midnight. Time to take the gloves off against the Islammunists.

...The US is undoubtedly involved. ...

I wish it were true, but I doubt it.
---

I am sure we are. If Bush weren't president I wouldn't be so sure, but given his commitment to democratizing the Middle East, and having warned Iran about their nuclear ambitions, which they didn't heed, I think he is pursuing the next step: after judging the Iranian resistance sufficiently strong to almost do it on their own, we probably assured them that if needed we stand ready with our military right next door in Iraq, to help them and not let the Iranian government stop them. There was an official statement from the White House today, supporting the protesters, I think that was probably a signal to go full speed ahead.

This time the US is not going to let down the freedom fighters.

I am glad to have this confirmed. Before I read this post of yours, I just said, that I thought the official statement from the White House in support of the protesters was a signal for GO!

The Iranian government bought satellite jamming equipment from France....

The Iranian people know this... they have the jamming equipment and fear it is making them ill.

There are many here who support them. Perhaps we can only support with prayer for now, but our hearts are there with them.

Find a cave to hide in Iranian President Mohammad Khatami..We're coming!



An injured student from the Hemmat dormitory of Allameh Tabatabai University in Tehran, Iran, Saturday, June 14, 2003 shows a knife wound in the back. Dozens of militants stormed at least two university dormitories, beating up students in their beds and detaining several of them as violence aimed at silencing government critics raged through Iran's capital.

In theory it should be no different than jamming a VHF radio signal. Its the signal from the satellite as it reaches the ground they need to overpower, so the jammers can be much less powerful but closer to the dishes. The effectiveness will vary with power output and proximity, but they should be able to interfere noticibly.

It is right now 10:38am in Tehran, 12:08 am in PDT, 3:08 am EDT.

There is a neat time zones site, which gives you all the times in various places vs. GMT. (they only have standard time re. GMT, don't adjust for daylight savings, take that into account,when looking it up)

Teheran is GMT +3:30; EDT = GMT-4; PDT = GMT -7

"I am sure we don't have enough!"

Sure we do. How many armed forces do you think the Mullahs have? I bet if the chips are down, as they are about to be, the military will join the people, they just need a little incentive, just as the Iraqi Army evaporated.

I'm posting a summary of DoctorZin's posts so that everyone can email it to news outlets. See my next post. You can copy and paste that post to your emails (but please leave my name off).

Most news staffers are home for the weekend (I still can't figure out why they think news only happens Monday through Friday), but it won't hurt to bombard all the news stations with this news.

Also, if you call them on the telephone, there is usually someone there to take "breaking news" reports.

Here are the email addresses of some of the major news outlets:

According to sources in IRAN:

This just in...

We are hearing of a MASSIVE protest against the Iranian regime is being organized for Sunday evening in Iran, June 13, 2003.

We are hearing of entire families, neighborhoods planning on attending. Even those frightened by the regime in the past as planning to join the protest tonight.

It is expected to be HUGE!

We are hearing from people in Tehran who are telling us the story directly.

I have never heard such excitement before.

We are hearing that the people are making crosses to carry with them in the protests...

They want the crosses to symbolize they are being slaughtered as Christ was slaughtered.

Whole families are going to join the protest: babies, mothers, children.... the entire families.

More to come....

I am hearing of people going to church right now... They are the ones who plan on carrying crosses.

This must happen for the regime to callapse. It make take more than this, but is building FAST!

We are hearing that once the people heard President Bush supported their efforts everyone was encouraged and it has helped people to decide to join the protests.

Re #60

Yes, let both mullahs and their opposition know that this time around the opposition really have something to fall back on, even if mullahs try to kill all of them. Mullahs would have a real tough time to crack down on protesters, if American troops are on stand-by next door in Iraq and in possession of all those surplus arms from Saddam's regime.

The situation is completely different from Tienanmen Sqaure uprising. The brutal quelling of protest won't be the end of the story. On the contrary, it will make things much worse for mullahs. That is, Bush could come in and clean their clock, one way or the other.

Thanks, I'll bookmark that site.

The GMT site I found gave things relative to standard time, and I knew about the US DST, but not the Iranian one.

Are Iranians using cell phones and instant messaging to communicate plans rapidly? Can you mention anything you have heard about this?

Instant messaging has been important in arranging "instant" mass demonstrations in the Philippines and elsewhere.

A government may suppress the news accounts, but it no longer critical, because the news (and plans) can be sent via instant message from one person to ten to a thousand to a million in a few minutes.

Have you heard of this happening in Iran?

I wonder if they even have cell phones.

In Iraq they had no infrastructure for cell phones at all. I don't know and wonder if they have it in Iran. I kind of doubt it.

Don't we have enough?

Will the Iranian military kill Iranian students in the streets, if it came to that?

The US military need not become directly involved, at first blood. The fact that we have assets in the area is enough to strengthen the resolve of those who wish regime change. We do not know what the US has in the area, or in-country. This administration has not been one to blab and broadcast any covert support or operational capability. What you don't see is more important than what you do see.
