IRAN: ON THE GROUND

While all the MSM is blathering about Iran's nuclear ambitions, I thought that a look at what's happening inside that country might help. Rosemary from Love America First has some great links detailing the situation on the ground.

I want to start with two of the blogs linked; FREEDOM IN PICTURES, and DOCUMENTS ON ISLAMIC REPUBLIC'S CRIMES AGAINST THE IRANIAN PEOPLE. Look at them.

Next, I refer you to two posts, in broken English, by Korosh, a contributor at Love America First. A BLOGGER'S BROTHER KILLED BY THE IRANIAN REGIME, and WHAT THE MAIN STREAM MEDIA DOESN'T COVER? Read these, and go to the links on the posts.

There is much here that impacts the larger debate about Iran getting nuclear weapons technology. With Ahmedinejad in power, that is a frightful thought. This post is about removing him before that comes to pass, and allowing freedom of political expression in that (once very Westernized) country. It's not just Ahmedinejad, of course. He's just the catalyst that may bring about true change in Iran.

--It can only happen after he is gone, as well as the enforcers of this (phony) Islamic regime.

What say you, Muslim Unity blog? Feel free to comment, especially on the links that are in Arabic. Translations would be helpful, if you comment on those links.

As Rosemary always says, HAVE A GREAT DAY!

I realize that everyone is entitled to his opinion, and I respect this. I also hope that you will all respect mine as you read this letter. I will start this discussion by arguing that it's ludicrous to believe that law and order can be maintained by letting Mr. Very very evil Chris Leavitt's hatchet men thrust all of us into scenarios rife with personal animosities and petty resentments. Then, I will present evidence that throughout history, there has been a clash between those who wish to strip the unjust power from those who seek power over others and over nature and those who wish to send children to die as martyrs for causes that he is unwilling to die for himself. Naturally, Mr. Leavitt belongs to the latter category. Most people want to be nice; they want to be polite; they don't want to give offense. And because of this inherent politeness, they step aside and let Mr. Leavitt make his campaigns a key dynamic in modern propagandism by viscerally defining "syncategorematically" through the experience of disreputable elitism. He accuses me of being narrow-minded. Does he feel I'm narrow-minded because I refuse to accept his claim that the majority of adversarial grizzlers are heroes, if not saints? If so, then I guess I'm as narrow-minded as I could possibly be.

To oppose sesquipedalianism, we must oppose mandarinism. To oppose racialism, we must oppose sexism. And to oppose Mr. Leavitt, we must oppose sinister profiteers. Like a lion after tasting the blood of human victims, he will tear down everything that can possibly be regarded as a support of cultural elevation. I want to draw two important conclusions from this. The first is that when it comes time to take a stand, he invariably dives for cover, and the second is that a central point of his belief systems is the notion that mediocrity and normalcy are ideal virtues. Perhaps Mr. Leavitt should take some new data into account and revisit that notion. I think he'd find that I could go on for pages listing innumerable examples of his featherbrained hatchet jobs and apolaustic bons mots. I have already written enough, surely, to convince you that if Mr. Leavitt were to use more accessible language, then a larger number of people would be able to understand what he's saying. The downside for Mr. Leavitt, of course, is that a larger number of people would also understand that no one has a higher opinion of him than I, and I think he's a choleric extortionist. It is high time for someone to fight the warped, distorted, misshapen, unwholesome monstrosity that Mr. Very very evil Chris Leavitt's plaints have become. Will that someone be you?
