“Iran has executed its Tiananmen Square. Baharestan Square has become synonymous with barbarity, cruelty, massacre and inhumanity.
An Iranian blogger (whose URL I will not publish) live blogging from Baharestan Square in central Tehran today captures but brief glimpses of the unimaginable horror that took place today. Bus loads of protesters were stopped and unloaded from their buses by “black-clad police” and literally herded. When the massing was sufficient, as the barely controllably distraught Tehran caller to CNN described first hand, hundreds of the regime’s Basij thugs poured out of an adjoining mosque and commenced a massacre with axes, clubs, guns and gas.
From the live blogger’s eyewitness account:
>More than 10.000 Bassij Milittias get position in Central Tehran, including Baharestan Sq.
>Army Helycopters flying over Baharestan and Vali Asr Sq.
>The streets, squares and around BAHARESTAN (Approx. South-eastern of Tehran) is swarming with military forces, civilian forces, the security motorists
>The croud have moved to the south of baharestan, the situation is bad, the shooting has started
>In Baharestan Sq. in the Police shooting, A girl is shot and the police is not allowing to let them help
>In Baharestan we saw militia with axe choping people like meat – blood everywhere – like butcher
This is the Iranian regime, wading into its own unarmed people and axing them to death, bludgeoning women (seen as the greatest threat to the regime) and throwing them to their deaths from pedestrian bridges. The same Iranian regime whose embassy officials are invited to American embassies around the world to celebrate on July 4th, of all things, a successful revolution.”
You should read the whole enchilada, but be warned: There is a particularly gruesome image of a dead man with an ax wound in his chest.
Also, the Iranians have been uninvited from the July 4th celebrations. I’m still pissed that these pieces of shit were invited in the first place.
I posted in a blog comment a few days ago that unless the Iranian protestors overran police and military positions and armed themselves, they would eventually be slaughtered. Sometimes I really hate being right all the time.
So, the masque is off the mosque vis-a-vis the Iranian thugocracy now, so what will happen next? I’m not sure yet, but my outlook is not sanguine. The Mullahs obviously read the Chi-com text book, and what worked for the communist thugs may very well work for the Islamist thugs too.
Unarmed populations seldom succeed at revolution, which is why being armed is a fundamental human right. As Aristotle said, “The true measure of a people’s freedom is whether they are armed or not.”
