Mainstream media reports
riot in the streets of Iran because of a crumbling economy. Hundreds of
police disbursed groups that formed, firing tear gas into the crowds.
This is the first instance of public unrest over the declining
Iranian currency and has the hallmarks of being a synthetic revolt.
The pressure placed on Iran by the US and Zionist interests is
causing massive suffering on the part of Iranian citizens. This has
limited Iran’s ability to sell oil. The Iranian rial has lost 18% of its
worth and still plummeting . Trading has nearly completely been halted, according to trading houses.
Anoush Ehteshami, professor of international relations at Durham University
in the U.K, states that: “The fact that there are street protests was
in many ways inevitable given that the Iranians are essentially living
in a pressure cooker. The protest also reflects the lack of confidence
in the elite’s ability to sort things out. People are also aware of
tensions at the highest level of the state and you put these things
together and they want at the very least to show their anger.”
Concerning Iran, AIPAC coerced the US Congress to impose stricter sanctions on Iran with HR 1905 and the desire to inspire the revolution of Iranian citizens against their government.
Rumors of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad being unfit to guide
the Islamic nation are beginning to circulate. Meanwhile protesters are
beginning to surface in a curious way – nearly just as the US-sponsored
Free Syrian Army (FSA) suddenly developed.
Victoria Nuland, US State Department spokesperson states that the
protests are expanding and this means “the Iranian people are demanding
better from their government and speaking out against the gross
mismanagement of the economy and the situation in the country.” Nuland
remarked that the US government is “watching the situation very closely.”
