Death to Ahmadinejad

TEHRAN, March 19 (UPI) – Many Iranian youths rallied in streets across the country, shouting “Death to Ahmadinejad,” in celebrations marking the end of the Persian calendar year.

The last Wednesday of the Persian calendar is celebrated as the Fire Festival in Iran, with bonfires and firecrackers marking the occasion.

In the western city of Ahvaz, angry mobs declared “Freedom is our legitimate right” while demonstrators in the western city of Sanandaj shouted “Death to (Iranian President Mahmoud) Ahmadinejad,” Ynetnews reported Wednesday.

The police in Tehran were out in force and, though they were met with a barrage of firecrackers, the situation didn’t escalate beyond what is typical for the Fire Festival, local reports cited in the news report said.

Ahmed Raza-Radan, the police chief in Tehran, warned demonstrators against violating the rule of law in a news conference.

“The police force has resolved to detain any party-goers who break the law. The secret police will have full control, and will not hesitate to photograph citizens for evidence,” he said.

So, apparently the Christian west isn’t the only place where people desire freedom, and feel they can get it via Revolution.

Startling, isn’t it?

I hope they get it sooner rather than later when they get closer to building the bomb.

That’s what they want you to believe. It’s a conspiracy I tell you. Ahmadinejad organized those rallies himself.

Nuke the cockroaches!

That is really interesting.

Let the Iranians have the government they want and deserve and if they don’t want it, have another revolution. If it would work in SA, it would work in Iran, and don’t fault us if we do not get involved.

The article is very light on details.

Were these Shiite muslims or members of a minority group?

What the hell does many mean?

It means more than 2. I’m guessing a few dozens. Conservatives like Mahmoud are very unpopular among the younger crowd.

I blame Bush and the war in Iraq. I also blame America for the problems there.

Hell, America is Satan. Gave the apple to Eve.
