Iran Protest Videos

Posted on Dec 29, 2009

It’s difficult to confirm the origin of all of these news and Internet videos of protests in Iran, but it’s clear that something major is again happening there.

Analysis from NewsHour, Dec. 29:

Sirjan Execution Foiled?, Dec. 27
We cannot confirm the authenticity of this video, which is popping up on pro-reform sites and YouTube channels, which describe it as footage of this event, reported by Reuters.

A young civil rights movement is rising up against Amedinajad’s free market fundamentalism and the oppressive morality police in Iran; good for them, a genuine movement of the people who live there.

Free in Tahiti, Oreobama…I love that one! I’m using that!

Kahoona, indeed your Kahoona is impressive, for full-colour-fakery is exactly what’s happening. The footage of that beautiful woman who was shot during the elections was a case in point. Far from the front lines, where the government security was (in front of her) she was struck from behind by a round from a HP rifle. It’s all a bunch of BS as near as I can tell. If it’s real, and the US Intel agencies want us to believe in it’s reality, then I say “Well you shouldn’t have ****ing lied to us the last 900 times consecutively”.

But the evidence really is that the people are firmly behind ImaDinnerJacket. He’s gone after the visible corruption with some success, and that’s what the people want. These green-colour *ssholes with their “Death to Russia, Death to China” and their placards written in English (!!!!!) are sooooooooo not the real thing. They are about as much a grass-roots movement as Goldman Sachs.

P.S. Wow, I’m using the IESpell spellchecker for Internet Explorer plugin and when it came to the word “ImaDinnerJacket” it suggested “Ahmadinejad”. I sh*t you not!

Would not surprise me if hired hit men from Mossad or the CIA are picking off innocent people and blaming it on the Iranian Gov.
I am sure these ‘pros’ can get Iranian police uniforms and blend in with the chaos. Only Israel and the US benefit from this.

What about Honduras?

Iran, Iran, Iran…

you know this omnipresent fixation on Iran….

as a preamble to illegal and unprovoked war on Iran…


you know, yet another CIA colored revolution to effect regime change…  for israel’s benefit, another one of its paranoid schemes…

“amerika’s got to do it, we can’t let israel do it, lest their reputation suffer” - dixit NYT on Xmas eve, no less, you know peace on earth and stuff… I kid you not…  (

and yet, not a word on Political assassinations by the US puppet in Honduras by the truckload to this day, after an oreobama orchestrated coup in june,  I mean wake up and call a spade a spade. Total radio silence on all msm and western media.  and yet…

So you’ll excuse me if I don’t get too worked up on the next zionist-R-US we need to overturn Iran plot.

To be perfectly honnest I hope the Iranians soon have a credible nuke and intercontinental delivery system, do you think US and israel might just cool it a bit then?

could we then have…  peace? even if M.A.D

how many countries has Iran invaded, occupied and ramsacked lately…  how many civilians has it slaughtered with white phosphorous?

whatever this Iraninan thing has evolved into, nobody can deny that, at the onset, it had dirty western intellingence agencies’ fingerprints all over it.

but in our msm universe we get caught up in the swirl of it all…

What?  msm don’t lie?

it doesn’t do anything but!

i.e.  latest 1984 “war is peace” example:

“Copenhagen was a great success” (oreobama, sarkonazi , brown, etc.. dixit and repeated all msm, US, Europe)  when it is clear it was a total disaster! (ask third world!)  proof enough for you or have you given up on paying attention?
