These news items are just incredible.

A reliable source who wished to remain anonymous told the organization of Young Freedom Fighters of Iran: “The plan for this nefarious action was organized and put into action two weeks ago by a few of the authorities from the Exigency and Punishment sector who have empowered members of the Basij to round up these unfortunate women.

It is quite possible that the regime would have mass executed them. The regime is intent on ‘purging’ Iranian society during The Year of Mohammad, stirring national morality standards toward the principles of the 12th Imam’s country. As such in recent days runaway girls and deserted woman have been harassed, threatened and intimidated by the regime’s plainclothes agents; the women have been warned that they should either leave Iran by the end mid-June or be executed.

Talk about the MOTHER OF ALL NUTJOB'S!!! What kind of idiot excutes "runaway girls & deserted women"? Man oh man, how my heart just BREAKS for the average Iranian.

Basketcase economies for so much of the world; like Mexico, etc.

What is going to help these countries in the future and how will they not be threat to us? Some of these countries want the bomb for 'might makes right.' This is the progress of man??

And any regime that treats its' own like this; how will they treat the west?


"According to received reports, on Thursday, April 13th, the Islamic regime’s Basiji forces apprehended a large number of runaway girls and deserted women and took them to an unknown location.

....

Sahar and Ashraf are two women of a group of women who live together in an apartment after their husbands either died or abandoned them, who have no other family and who have no employment opportunities other than prostitution to support themselves. Sahar and Ashraf were revealed to the Basiji forces, which in turned threatened, them. Ashraf said that the agents who threatened her have also told her that special services are being provided for their passage out of Iran. Sahar, confirmed Ashraf’s comments and added: “These characters who threatened us fall silent when we ask them to help us get respectable jobs; they tell us, leave the country or stay and die.”

We don't need to do anything except keep the pressure on. Iran will completely isolate itself due to it's own actions.

Maybe this will push the Iranian people past the threshold. If so, then hopefully Ahmedinejad's fate would be the same as Ceaucescu, and maybe the United States and/or Israel will not have to take military action. Of course when I say that, I also say "keep your powder dry".
