Iranian Elections

If you're going to fix the electoral results, why not do something more believable, like Bush's victory in 2000. Ahmedinejad, or however its spelled, won with 69% (give more or less 3pts) of the votes, no matter which district. Can you imagine if Obama had won with 69%, even in the red states?? No fucking way.

I guess now it all depends on how pissed the Iranians are gonna be and how willing is the police to beat-up their fellow citizens. Any Iranians reading this blog? Is the Internet still available?

Yeh, I guess that whole "change in the middle east!" upbeat note they were on about in the local news here? Didn't take.

And no one who's side looses, ever likes the electoral system Ariel. Fact of life. :) Kind of like, watching someone else get hit in the face with horse turd = hilarious.
Getting hit in your own face with a horse turd? = Eh not so hilarious.

Most of all it looks like another "color revolution" like in Ukraine or Georgia. Some iranian but western-paid "human right" organisations try to "show the world, that DEMOCRACY IS IN DANGER!!!111oneone". If it works, the government will be overthrown and USA/Europe will get iranian oil. ($_$)

But the last "color revolutions" didn't work (Belarus, Moldau), so I think, it will not work in Iran to. CIA has not enough money right now. (^_^)

The latest "color revolutions" were attempts at liberation from puppet regimes, usually from Russian influence or direct involvement. Which isn't the case of Iran. Doesn't mean it's gonna work, but it's not the same situation. That's the reason why Obama isn't giving any overt support to the Iranian protesters like Reagan and the AFL-CIO did with Poland in the 80s.

Liberation? (o_O) What are you talking about? I always thought, that liberation means: "Someone becomes free". And this is not the case of "color revolution". Can you really say, that Georgia is a free country now? May be you means: "they've got new masters"? (^_^)

About 50 years ago there was something like that in Iran - "Operation Ajax". May be the first "color revolution" ever.
Look here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1953_Iranian_coup_d'état

I trust in democracy as one of the best political system, but I don't trust the politicans that use this word to often. Usually they only want more power/money. (^_^)
