WEB Notes: Before we could even publish our 2017 in Review article, Iran is already shaking… Now into the fifth day of protests they are calling this “the largest public display of discontent in Iran since the 2009 Green Movement, when people took to the streets to dispute the election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.“…
Every media outlet I have seen is calling this a “spontaneous uprising“. There are no “spontaneous uprisings“.
If the people did this all on their own, then it was planned out. If this has been performed by another nation (entity, CIA) as it was suspected during the “Green Movement” then it was planned out as well.
At this point I highly doubt the people did this on their own. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani acknowledged the nation has a very bad economy which is hurting the people.
Why do you think Iran has a bad economy?
How many years now has the United States and other Global Powers placed sanctions on Iran? For years and years is the answer and it has and is taking its toll on the nation and its people.
When we saw an “uprising” in Syria they called it a grassroots movement and they will probably call this a grassroots movement as well. You should also be aware of a terrorist attack that just took place in one of the cities where the so called “protesters” are. A pipeline was blown up by Sunni jihadists. On many levels we are seeing Iran infiltrated at this point in time.
In other articles they are saying the Iranian protesters are armed and trying to take over military bases. Does that perk your ears up a bit? It should. According to Iran Economics, “It is close to impossible to own a firearm in Iran”. So where are these “protestors” acquiring these firearms and ammunition?
Regardless of who is doing what, the fact of the matter is Global Powers want the regime changed in Iran and one way or another that will happen. We could very well be witnessing the setup for the next global stage…
At least 12 people have been killed in four days of demonstrations in Iran, state media reported, in the biggest challenge to the authority of the Tehran regime since mass protests in 2009.
The violence continued despite an appeal for calm by Iranian president Hassan Rouhani on Sunday. He played down the significance of the protests on Monday, as the country’s leadership struggled to respond to the largely spontaneous uprisings.
“Our great nation has witnessed a number of similar incidents in the past and has comfortably dealt with them. This is nothing,” Rouhani said in a meeting with Iranian MPs on Monday. But he acknowledged that Iranians had legitimate concerns and had the right to make legal protests.
At the meeting with MPs on Monday, Rouhani acknowleged that Iranians had the right to protest legally. “The space needs to open up for legal protest and criticism,” he said.
In a nod to the concerns fueling the protests, he added: “We have no bigger challenge than unemployment. Our economy requires major corrective surgery.”
