Massive protests have broken out in Iran, a country of well-educated, once westernized people.
There have been protests in Iran since the inception of the oppressive Iranian regime under Ayatollah Khomenei in 1979. These latest round of protests began North Eastern Iranian city of Mashhad and quickly spread throughout the nation to include: Shahroud, Nousshahr, Birjand, Nishapur, Kermanshah, Yazd, Isfahan, Quchan, Tabriz, Kerman, Sari, Rasht, Ahwaz, Qazvin, Zahedan, Qom, Hamedan, QaemShahr, KhorramAbad.
The last massive movement – the Green movement – was brutally put down by the regime and helped in that by Barack Obama and his policies.
This time it’s different, the State Department and the President have warned Iran about their treatment of the people.
Iranians continually protest for their rights in every area of society but they’ve all come together for this one, according to Iran, Islamic State of Crime.
The Iranian government is very corrupt. Inflation is high, unemployment is at 12.4%, and their money goes to the military and the making of the bomb and ICBMs. Also, the protest leaders of the Green Movement were not released as the radical Rohani promised in two elections.
The Facebook site added:
Also today, Senator Tom Cotton who has been very active and insightful on the Khomeiniist regime’s character, history and behavior struck while the iron was hot and made a concise and thoughtful comment. He called for supporting the Iranian people’s protest against ‘hateful’ Ayatollahs.
Speaker Paul Ryan tweeted as well.Followed by a statement from the State Department’s Heather Nauert, and remarks from Press Secretary Sarah Huckeby[sic] Sanders which read:
U.S. strongly condemns arrest of peaceful protestors in #Iran, urges all nations to publicly support Iranian people. As @POTUS said, longest-suffering victims of Iran’s leaders are Iran’s own people. #Iranprotests pic.twitter.com/mUTObTeHft
