Khamenei's Dead?

Pajamas Media: Iran's supreme leader dead

I just talked to my folks and my mom said TV is showing video clips and music. Nothing extra ordinary out there at 7:30 am of 5th of Jan, 07.

And you know what, if the regime wanted to prepare the masses for khamenei's death, they had to ask people to pray for him just like the way they asked people to do the same for khomeini in 1989 and before he died.

Nothing of this sort is going on inIran right now but I keep my fingers crossed...

سیستم کشور به گونه ای درهم ریخته است که اگر این مورد، درست هم باشد امید به هیچ بهبودی نیست. شاید شاخ و برگهایی از آن کم یا زیاد شود ولی در کل، چندان دگرگونی پیش رو نیست. دیکتاتور زاییده و برآمده از دیکتاتورخواهی و ناآگاهی مردمان است و تا این مردم به یافته ها و داشته هایشان دوباره نگری نکنند، همین است که بوده. چند روزیست که گاز شهری را قطع کرده اند و مردم بجای صف کشیدن مقابل فرمانداری یا اداره گاز، بر سر میادین در صف دراز نفت ایستاده اند تا بیست لیتر از نفتی را که هنوز قرار است پولش را دم در خانه بیاورند، تحویل بگیرند. حال این شایعه درست باشد یا نه آگاه نیستم

I remember in the bad old days of the Soviet Union, some of the old goats in the Politburo would be dead for days before the news of it would be allowed out. Seems to me it was the same when Mao Tse Dong died, too.

You are right .. I was surprised Ledeen will post this lie on his blog.

Frieda, it wasn't lie. Moreover, it is just a story that is not yet confirmed and Khamenei was last seen in December 24th. I keep my fingers crossed for that thing to happen. I hope he goes to hell...

Well, certainly his death will bring a new era in Iran which we need it desperately, but there is not guaranty in terms of which way it may tilt.

If it is true, him and Saddam are having fun with cup of tea now among other things. It will be interesting to see if they both were dead on the same day!!

Stratfor reports that he is not dead yet but will die by next summer.

To make things even more interesting, sources in Beirut, Lebanon, report that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's days in power could also be numbered -- he could depart the political scene within the year. After his radical conservative faction suffered a bruising defeat in the December 2006 municipal and Assembly of Experts elections...The removal of Ahmadinejad, which could take the form of a forced resignation, expulsion by the supreme leader or a deadly accident, is not expected to take place before June. Should Khamenei survive through the summer of 2007, it is quite possible that Rafsanjani would replace Ahmadinejad as president. It might be no coincidence that Rafsanjani, in a recent talk with journalists, described a new highway currently under construction in Tehran, as the "highway of Shahid (martyr) Ahmadinejad."
