Okay.... now I am hearing from inside of Iran that Mousavi camp has no intention of crossing the regime's line. I know, I know, as far as Khamenei is concerned Mousavi has crossed many many lines. But I am not sure if Mousavi is the man to lead the anti-regime masses that came out on this past Saturday. And this lack of cohesive leadership inside of Iran means the movement might not succeed immediately. As I said before, the movement will shift to civil disobedience mode very soon. Labor unions, oil workers (oil industry is controlled by IRGC though) and government agencies are the main factors in this deal. The people inside of Iran have been screaming/demanding for a more forceful leadership that can truly lead their movement towards liberty and democracy. That leader has yet to materialize. Where's Mousavi?
The next few days will show if Mousavi is really the man or the people in the streets should look beyond him in their struggle against the thuggish Islamic Republic.
Update: Iranian protesters have started their own "Street" newspaper. Link in persian
Update at 9pm ET: I missed this disgraceful show of support Obama had for the criminal mullahs. He proves to be an arse again:
- "It's not too late for the Iranian government to see there is a peaceful path that leads to legitimacy in the eyes of the Iranian people."
