Iranian Leaders Slam West Over Election

By Wyatt Earp | June 22, 2009

Iranian RiotsAs the Iranian protests head into their second week, international pressure is increasing on the government there. Of course, they couldn’t care less, but the protests and riots are beginning to take their toll. So much so, in fact, that the Iranian government is blaming the West for the uprising.

I guess the fact that they have been caught performing election shenanigans didn’t sit well with the religious leaders. Now, they are doing their best Scooby Doo villain impersonation:

“We would have gotten away with it if it weren’t for the meddling West.”

TEHRAN, Iran — Iran stepped up allegations Monday against the West of “meddling” in its disputed presidential election even as its election authority reportedly acknowledged that the number of ballots cast in dozens of cities exceeded the number of eligible voters in those areas.

Speaking to reporters, Foreign Ministry spokesman Hasan Qashqavi alleged that foreign media organizations, such as CNN and the BBC, were mouthpieces of their respective governments that were exaggerating reports of police clashes with protesters who have demonstrated daily since the June 12 race.

Yeah, and that real-time video of the Iranian woman shot and killed was just a Hollywood production, right?

He also said that government-run news sites, such as the Iranian Student’s News Agency, had been hacked in recent days and implied foreign outlets were behind it.

“Isn’t it a cyber war of the media with an independent government?” Qashqavi said. “They ask people to use the DOS (denial of service) system to hack our Web sites.” (H/TCNN)

Ya know, President Obama keeps saying that he won’t condemn the Iranian elections because he doesn’t want to seem as “meddling” in their affairs. Well, since he is being accused of it now anyway, maybe he should grow a pair and say what everyone in the world is thinking: The Iranian election was rigged, and the continuing denials of that fact are laughable.

    You sure he shouldn’t just apologize for any problem this country has caused?

    Sorry, OT again

    Well, I’m back. Thanks to anyone who noticed!

    The NHS can do a great job if you are an emergency. And I was. I couldn’t breathe because of fluid in the lungs. I couldn’t sleep because I would feel like I was drowning. I couldn’t walk more than a few yards without having to stop for breath.

    Now I’m back home, drained of fluid by diuretics and with the heart slowed down to its proper pace. On Warfarin now so no rat had better sink their teeth it – they’ll get more than they imagined!

    Best wishes to all. Alan

    Obviously Irans leaders & President Ahmadinejad have removed their masks & are showing their true colors of just how evil they & their so called Peaceful Islam Muslim Religious Government really are by hiring Terrorist Militia to wrongfully slaughter their own people. They probably also even paid all the voters who did vote for Ahmadinejad. For the whole world heard them all Chant Death to America, Brittan & Isreal on Friday which sounds just like true Jihadi Terrorists. Irans Natzi Hitler Leaders & President don’t like it that their people & our news media are exposing their dishonorable deception & evil Government Leadership to the world & their inability to brainwash, supress, control & dictate to the citizens of Iran currently so this is their punishment to them in return. Their egos won’t let them show weakness by backing down, they would rather be Natzi Hitler Terrorist murderers. Injured Iranian people are afraid to go to the hospital there for treatment because their HEALTH CARE IS GOVERNMENT RUN, FEDERAL HEALTH CARE REFORM, and they are afraid of the kind of treatment they would get might harm them more & of being arrested should they seek health care now. Also, how sad these citizens of Iran can only throw rocks in defense at these Government Hired Terrorist Militia because obviously their Government has taken away their 2nd Amendment Rights to bear arms.

    It would appear to Americans that Obama & our Government are trying to force these same policies on us in America & copy & make America like the middle East Governments policies, controls & takeovers by forcing America to adopt a Federal Health Care Reform also & by taking away Americas 2nd Amendment Rights to bear arms, etc. What’s happening in Iran is just one reason we don’t want Obama & his administration policies here in America. Vote No on Federal Health Care Reform & any bans on our rights to bear arms here in America.

    Doghouse – If he did, then the extremists are BOUND to like us!

    Alan B – Glad to hear it. Saw your comment the other day. Welcome back, sir!

    Linda – The sad part is that Mousavi wouldn’t be much better than Ahmadinejad. Like the last American election, it was a battle of the lesser of two evils.

    Those A-holes shot that poor girl right through the heart.

    If you look at the video getting out of Iran, It’s either a head shot or heart…. sometimes they go for the crotch.

    The crackdown has just started…

    Sully – Judging from where the people are putting pressure, it may have been a upper chest/throat shot.

    US says hot dog diplomacy still on with Iran

    8 hours ago

    WASHINGTON (AFP) — The United States said Monday its invitations were still standing for Iranian diplomats to attend July 4 celebrations at US embassies despite the crackdown on opposition supporters.

    What a joke!! How can any human being even consider dealing with these animals? The Obama regime needs to be hammered over the head with this thoughtlessness 24/7
