The Show Down is Just Days Away
For the Iranian people, the coming week will be it's most important in the last 25 years. July 9th is set to be the biggest confrontation ever between the people of Iran and the regime. We can expect martial law to be declared. The people appear prepared to demonstrate and strike, in spite of government warnings. The regime is doing everything possible to discourage the people from any protest on this date. We must do everything possible to encourage them
The people of Iran have shown extraordinary courage in the past 26 days. Daily, the people have protested. Daily the forces of the regime have beaten and arrested those who dare to call for its end.
Out president gave the people an incredible moral support when he spoke of our support for the demonstrators.
Unfortunately, our secretary of state Colin Powell stated yesterday that we should stay out of this Iranian "family fight" and that it was his hope that "the United States had learned its lesson not to interfere in Iran's affairs."
These statements have caused shock, despair and anger within the Iranian community, both inside Iran and the US.
Ruling hard liners welcomed Powells interview, interpreting it as meaning the danger of a possible American military intervention in Iran was over.
Now the US media has been silent on this struggle. I hope it is just that the media has been waiting for this week to ramp up on the story.
But we need to encourage them to cover the story, in depth. Starting tomorrow in the Sunday morning talk show and throughout next week. The people of Iran hear what out media is saying about the situation there and we need to put pressure on the media to follow the story and interview real experts on Iran like, Michael Ledeen, Amir Taheri, and people like Banafsheh.
I want to strongly encourage you to contact the media sources below and ask others to do the same. Let them know that this is a story of great importance to Americans and the war on terror.

The situation in Iranian society is extremely messy.
No one believes the other one; everyone looks at another with doubt and suspicion. All people are scared of a massacre which unable them to join protests, or they are afraid of Economy. It is not the Shah era that all staffs and clerk were off the work but the Shah has paid them.
This is Islamic Republic who jails any one who stops working to show protests and will cut the salaries and wages. So that people are afraid to go and join demonstrations, Many also doubt about a vast and huge protest on 9th of July.
That is sad and universities are closed now. Without a foreign power intervention, we can not get to any result in Iran, That mighty power is just the USA and you, Iranians there. You should press the US Govt; to support these young men. That is all you have to do.
According to a secret poll which has been done by university of Tehran, more than 80% of Iranians want a US strike and more than 74% backed Coalition forces strike on Iraq. Iranians are tired of this system and regime. Moreover, Iran as one of the richest countries of the world has a poor society. Most Iranians say: We welcome the US aggression, let them take our oil and let us have freedom and good economy. That is awful for a country, which is 7000 years old and has never been ruled by any foreign force throughout the history... I am sorry for this country but have to say that I am one of the people of this society who want such an aggression.
People say: If the US could take Iraq in 21 days, they can take here in 21 hours as well.
One of my friends, Mahbanoo, who is a dentist, told me that: I will open my house's door and I will give the US soldiers candy and cold water. They are welcome and greeted. It is a big duty for all of us to get rid of the most dangerous and fundamentalist regimes of this sacred planet.
I have a personal idea on the Iranian TV stations in California and my idea is based on what I have seen or heard among my friends and classmates, It is that some people here are sorry to see that such people are leading or encouraging the new movement, I dont say that they are bad or good. I am saying that the new Iranian atmosphere needs educated, young, acquainted experts to deal with these high level demands from the young generation.
This Iran needs overhaul repairs.
This is my letter which I have sent to some of the medias DoctorZIn quoted in the last reply.
