Mainstream media reports riot in the streets of Iran because of a crumbling economy. Hundreds of police disbursed groups that formed, firing tear gas into the crowds.
This is the first instance of public unrest over the declining Iranian currency and has the hallmarks of being a synthetic revolt.
The pressure placed on Iran by the US and Zionist interests is causing massive suffering on the part of Iranian citizens. This has limited Iran’s ability to sell oil. The Iranian rial has lost 18% of its worth and still plummeting . Trading has nearly completely been halted, according to trading houses.
Anoush Ehteshami, professor of international relations at Durham University in the U.K, states that: “The fact that there are street protests was in many ways inevitable given that the Iranians are essentially living in a pressure cooker. The protest also reflects the lack of confidence in the elite’s ability to sort things out. People are also aware of tensions at the highest level of the state and you put these things together and they want at the very least to show their anger.”
Concerning Iran, AIPAC coerced the US Congress to impose stricter sanctions on Iran with HR 1905 and the desire to inspire the revolution of Iranian citizens against their government.
Rumors of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad being unfit to guide the Islamic nation are beginning to circulate. Meanwhile protesters are beginning to surface in a curious way – nearly just as the US-sponsored Free Syrian Army (FSA) suddenly developed.
