Iran Election and the Violence Within
The violence associated with the recent election in Iran.
Apparently Iran needs someone to blame for the recent election and the United States has become one of their scape goats.
The Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki has spoken about our interference in their election. Blaming BBC for one and ordering Jon Leyne a reporter to leave the country within 24 hours. Jon was said to have supported rioters and reporting news that is not true.
Rioters have been in full force since the election results on June 12th. A Mosque was set on fire, gas stations burned, and military posts attacked. People have died and more have been injured. Violence seems to be all the rage in this land of unrest.
The Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad pleaded with the United States and Britain to stop getting in the way of their domestic affairs as the country has come under a lot of violence since the recent election. It was also stated we should change our policies and our reporting methods.
In the eyes of those in power in Iran we are not considered their friends and should stay out of their business. Western countries have also been accused of creating political chaos for them and in their words to us they are retaliating.
The protests that have risen since this election have been the worst since 1979 during the revolution. Accusing those in charge of fraud during the counting of the votes. Too many reason’s to count as long as someone is being blamed.
These riots and protests are not only coming from those who lost the election but also by those who won. Some are peaceful demonstrations while others include violence with people being killed in the process.
It seems in this country it doesn’t seem to matter what is right or what is wrong as long as they are tearing apart their own land they seem to move forward.
Will their cry for westerners to mind our own business fix these problems? No, I do not believe anything will ever stop the fighting and violence that surrounds this unrest land. Will reporters stop writing because they ask us to? No, as long as there is news there it will be reported here and around the world.
This country does remain a part of the planet we live on and we all have the rights to know what is happening in this place of anger against thy neighbor.
