Revolutions are made in a moment. Did the Iranians miss that moment?
When are Moussavi, Hashemi, Khatami and Karroubi going to admit that the very creation of the Islamic Republic was a crime? Until and unless they do - there wont be that critical mass needed to turn this ugly page in the Iranian history.
My heart and prayers go to the young people of Iran - who had nothing to do with the mayhem that their parents created by inviting Khomeini and his criminal gang (which included all the aforementioned so called "green leaders")to rule Iran - under the scheme of a "supreme leader"! What bullshit!
These leaders can not keep defending this so called Islamic constitution and expect people to turn out en-mass.

We have made an appearance today and have made our presence felt. But we did not deliver a blow to the regime and lets be honest they got what they wanted TODAY for propaganda purposes.

The regime fully anticipated what the movement was gonna do and planned carefully to prevent us from achieving our goal.

As the cliché goes we lost the battle but not the war and we need to recognize their tactics and create solutions which counter their measures to suppress the movement.

We can sit here all day and argue if we made our presence felt or not but instead we can use our creativity to find solutions for how to succeed in the long run.

Example of problems we can overcome

1. Inability for the crowds to unit in one common place through block of traffic and roads.
2. Understanding why the basij or militia are so loyal to this criminal regime and countering this loyalty with logic of the masses/ incentives to join the good guys ( remember this regime is nothing without their attack dogs)
3. Protesters being identified and singled out for arrest on the day or later on
4. Obtaining strong support from other demographics who are disenchanted with the regime but are afraid or unsure of joining the greens
5. Countering regime propaganda that they are the majority by asking for a referendum
6. countering regime propaganda that we are the agents of the west
7. And many many more which I’m sure we can think of

I think this movement need to re-strategize and come back stronger than ever, let the regime think they won for now and once we re emerge they will not know what hit them.

Expose Ayatollah Khamenei's Billions....and demand a Global / Wall St. 'Apartheid' Liquidation


The total wealth of Khamenei and his family: $36 billion.

Khamenei's personal wealth: $30 billion.

His family's wealth: $6 billion.


$22 billion of the $36 billion were kept in Iran in the form of currency. During the post-election unrest, it was decided to move a major portion of this money to Syria by way of Turkey. The shipment was exposed and confiscated in Turkey.

The rest of the cash: $3.5 billion, of which $1.5 billion is in diamonds, $1 billion is in gold, and the rest is in dollars.

$10 billion of the $36 billion are in bank accounts:

$1 billion in Russia
$1 billion in Syria
$1 billion in China
$1 billion in Venezuela
$2 billion in South Africa
$2 billion in London
$2 billion in other countries.

Apart from the $22 billion in cash and $10 billion in bank accounts, the rest of the assets are in the form of land and stocks:

$2 billion in stocks in world markets
$1 billion in South Africa
$500 million in Syria
$500 million in Venezuela

Where have Khamenei's $30 billion come from?

$12 billion from commissions on oil sales
$2 billion from land
$6 billion from the arms business
$10 billion from Ahmadinejad in the past 4 years

Some good points Mehrdad. And we must also remember that these kinds of things take time. The revolution itself took a few years to truly take shape and while it can be said that wit the technology that we have today it should speed things up, it's only been 8 months into a determined and united effort.

Does anyone really expect this regime to agree to an honest referendum? You can't invite outside observers, and without supervision, you will hand the regime the most impressive propaganda.

HIM the Dearest Leader will declare the vote before it is over. 99% YES for status quo. 1% NO and go to prison, just for fun.

External sanctions and internal economic boycotts are the only way to break the back of this regime. No foreign government will help us with effective sanctions. Their sanctions have historically only hurt the people.

So, it has to be all done by the people for the people. STRIKE.

The basij can beat up people, but can't run the oil industry.

To so-called Greens: Ok Feb 11 has come and gone. Will you finally admit that you are not a majority?
