The Iranian regime has been so brutal and so inept in dealing with its opponents that even a pro-regime mouthpiece such as (ayatollah) Shirin Ebadi is calling for sanctions against the regime. She warns that Iran might become like 'Zimbabwe'. What has the free world done about Zimbabwe? Nothing...
Many of you may wonder about yesterday's pro-regime rally and the real size of their crowd. Of course, it was not as large as the regime wanted us to believe. These photos show the real number of pro-government idiots who attended the rally on Feb. 11th and that's no big feat for a regime that claims to have 50 million or so supporters. In fact, it shows how miserable the mullahs and their IRGC thugs must be feeling these days as their regime is dying fast. All they could muster was probably 20 or 30 thousands from other towns and suburbs. The regime fears its own people more than any thing else.
Here's my fellow blogger Potkin from UK (his piece on real number of pro-regime crowd is interesting) on Aljazeera English:
The next anti-regime protest country-wide will take place on Charshanbe Soori fire festival (last Tuesday of the Persian year) and that'll be too much for regime to control. I'll expect casualties on that day on both sides. Moreover, I suspect nothing will happen until May Day (Labor day on 1st of May) where labor movement will be up in arms. Hopefully, things will be better for the opponents of the regime. It takes more than street protests to defeat the mullahs.
