Sea of Green

Posted on Friday 19 June 2009

My apologies for not posting in over a week.  The aftermath of the Iranian election has caught me up fully, and I’ve been unwilling (unable) to take my eyes from it.  And what, really, could I add to the general cacophony online?  When things are so very fluid, there’s little to do but watch.

Today’s address by Khamenei, though, has brought the situation to a head.   He totally affirmed his support of the election and Ahmadinejad, essentially telling the protesting millions to take their objections and stuff them.   They’ve now been told, in no uncertain terms, that if protests continue, they will get hurt.

This is where the rubber will hit the road.  Either the people will react to 30 years of obedient conditioning and accept the status quo, or they will reject Khamenei’s authority and join together in the streets tomorrow.

Mousavi has already responded that tomorrow’s march is on.

And when they do — if they do — then the Sea of Green, supported virtually by people all around the world, will either break upon this dictator’s beach, or wash him away.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
