Supporting the International Press in Iran
Dear Gold & Energy Advisor Subscribers,
The events taking place in Iran are reminiscent of the events that led to the overthrow of the Shah 30 years ago. In 1979 it was the students that lead the revolution. Back then they and the world press made a great deal about the Shah’s secret police beating, jailing and murdering civilians simply because they were protesting and working for the establishment of an Islamic state as a replacement for the western backed monarchy.
The world chose not to interfere on the behalf of the Shah’s regime and as a result we’ve lived with Iran’s state sponsored terrorism and growing nuclear threat.
I’m not going to sing the praises of the opposition candidate Mir Hossein Mousay, he’s a son of a bitch who supports Iran’s nuclear weapons program and would be every bit as difficult to deal with as the current Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
What I am going to point out is what the United States, President Obama and for that matter... the entire western world should be demanding over and over again...
* The International Press is allowed to cover the events taking place unmolested and without restriction or state editing.
* The safety of those protesting i.e. no arrests, no murders, no jail sentences and no mysterious disappearances.
Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khameni sternly warned earlier today of a crackdown if protesters continue their massive street rallies, escalating the government's showdown with demonstrators demanding a new presidential election.
In reaction to Khamenei's address, hours later, cries of "Death to the dictator!" and "Allahu akbar!"—"God is great!"—resounded from rooftops throughout Tehran after dark—similar to other nights this week following rallies supporting reformist candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi.
Western leaders should not openly interfere in the inner political workings of Iran, but we should not stand by and allow this radical Islamic and sponsor of International terrorism to suppress the reporting of the International press or slaughter its domestic political opposition. The West stood by and let these thugs overthrow the Shah. The West didn’t allow the Shah to stay in power knee deep in blood; we shouldn’t allow the current regime to do so either.
Write the White House and or your Congressional representatives and insist on the freedom of the International press and for the safety of those protesting the election results in Iran. The more emails, faxes and letters the better. A great many lives may hang in the balance.
The regime controlling Iran is a blood thirsty bunch that will kill thousands of its domestic enemies and attribute each one to a “car accident”.
