Neda in Iran – What’s next?

6/22/2009:

Did you happen to catch this tragic event in Iran over the weekend?

Peaceful protester shot dead by snipers

neda-iranThe woman, known only as “Neda” was apparently just one of thousands of protesters in Iran – but after she was shot and killed, has become a “voice” for those protesting. It’s caused a internet storm – just searching “Neda Iran” in Google News brings up thousand upon thousands of articles.

Additionally, there’s a live Neda Twitter feed, which gets tens of thousands of posts per hour – incredible.

Iran has been called the country with the highest percentage of bloggers in the world. Do you think this can change the course of history?

What will happen next in Iran?

Pure manipulation. The kind of personality that baits and blames. Like one of those assholes at a bar that starts up with you (or your company/girlfried/wife), maybe you get into a fight, but then when the cops arrive acts like a little wussy and claims that you beat him up for no reason. Same kind of person who wins positions in government by blaming others, and then when they’re in charge and half a year passes by, still blames all their own created problems for the ones who were in charge a year before.

But it’s almost a double edged sword. If you take the high road and say nothing do nothing, they still plot and execute their plans. If you do something or say something, they blame you for the ills they create.

What do you do? We’ll see very shortly. Muwah, ha, ha.

So I think I have an image by my name now. Or I could be wrong.

Exactly – it’d backfire because the notion of an external aggressor (especially Israel) would push all of the current unrest right off the stage and might even provide a good cover for really wiping out any/all opposition to the current regime. Ugly situation, getting uglier by the minute.

We have influence, but we do not have control, over what actions the Israelis decide to take. It seems like now would be a good time to take out at least three of the main nuke sites, but it could very well backfire in a very, very bad way.

I get wehat you’re saying. But if Israel takes out those nuke sites, the ruling elite in Iran will just bring out their guy from Isfahan to unite the Iranian people against an external aggressor. This would be exactly what they want, to blame anyone else but themselves for the domestic problems and mismanagement (as well as injustice and lack of individual rights) they’ve continued to take for granted.

Unforuntely, it is my guess that the Iranian ruling elite will not allow the people to continue what they’re doing.

Middle East turmoil is so 2004.

Obama’s bid to win this election, through his mid east tour earlier this month, failed. I guess “talking” does not work when you are dealing with crazy dictator governments such as Iran.

I say we let the Isrealies loose!!!!
