Brief News Update on Iran

| January 15, 2020 | 15 Comments

Now some Iranian people are calling for the Ayatollah Khameini to step down…. like that will ever happen. Yes, arrests have been made. But it’s still all our fault and Trump’s to blame for everything, when all those clowns had to do was shut down the airport and suspend flights, or stop shooting off missiles.

From the article:  The incident raised questions about why Iran did not shut down its international airport or airspace the day it was on alert for U.S. military retaliation.

The shootdown and the lack of transparency around it has reignited anger in Iran at the country’s leadership. Online videos appeared to show security forces firing live ammunition and tear gas to disperse protests in the streets.

Also Tuesday, Iran’s judiciary said that 30 people had been detained in the protests, and that some were released, without elaborating further. An Iranian film director who’d called for protests in Tehran’s Azadi, or Freedom, Square is among those released. – article

DUBAI (Reuters) – A leader of Iran’s opposition Green Movement, Mehdi Karroubi, called on Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the top authority in the Islamic Republic, to step down over the handling of the shooting down of the Ukrainian airliner.

In a statement posted online, Karroubi asked when Khamenei was told about the shooting down of the plane after it took off from Tehran on Wednesday, and why there had been a delay in informing the public about the real reasons for the crash. – article

    Anybody else think that it seems as if we have some congress critters that are supporting the Iranian gubmint more than some of the citizens of Iran are? Maybe those same congress critters are watching how the mad mullah controls his malcontents…prolly gathering some ideas.

    We can solve all of our problems in that sh^thole part of the world by GTFO. Let them continue to kill one another as they have been doing for centuries. just my repeated humble opinion.

    Trump didn’t kill Sulimani, he just gave him a late term abortion. ~ seen on Twitter

    Thoughts on the Airliner shoot down. I think Iran let the jet take off figuring once they fired the missiles, we would respond. They had an AA Battery all set to go, they fired off the missiles and they shot down the airliner. They figured we would have planes in the air and they would say that we shot down the airliner like we did in 1988.

    Only we did not scramble any fighters and did not fire back. But their plan went forward. With no US Response they could not cover it up. Sucks to be them!

    FUCK Iran and those who support its current regime, especially those in the US Congress who do.

  5. The Other Whitey says:

    For each protestor officially detained, it’s a safe bet the Revolutionary Guards disappeared 10-20 more and shot a least three. That place is the islamic “1984.”

    That everybody vying for the dem ticket would try to play nice with these assholes is quite telling.

  6. I don’t watch cable LSMFT and CNN and am wondering if those fake news peeps are now wearing General Salami tee shirts along with pelousy and the aoc crew like those liberal socialist snowflakes used to wear Mao and Che tee shirts when they were in vogue.
