Islamic Republic of Iran Publicly Tortures
SaggezardSaggezardSaggezardSaggezardSaggezardSaggezardSaggezardSaggezardSaggezardSaggezardSaggezardSaggezardIranian youth are being paraded and tortured publicly. The above photo was taken by Pars News photographer who was invited to the torture parade in order to photograph and disseminate the images all across Iran and the world. The images at the top show a young man with Marlon Brando looks and his free spirit shown by his Colombia football jersey and long hair, being pushed, thrown on the ground and his forehead getting bloodied in order to force him to put a device in his mouth which is used in toilets to wash excrement. The image below shows a clean cut man with western style shirt and trousers being subject to similar humiliations in front of photojournalists and the public on the streets of Tehran. There are people in the west who still say: "Why do the Iranian people not revolt against the regime?" I want to ask these people: When will western oil companies stop buying oil from the Ayatollahs and when will your governments stop making deals under the table with the Islamic regime? Islamic republic of Iran is the most advanced dictatorship in history. The Ayatollahs have taken their lessons from Niccolo Machiavelli, Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Pol Pot and made violent governance into a science. There are multiple layer security apparatus and intelligence gathering organizations keeping taps on Iranians all across the world by assassination, execution, disappearance, torture, rape, intimidation and use of death squads inside and outside of Iran . Execution and torture is widely used in prison facilities in every corner of the country, many facilities built during Khatami's rein have capacities of 70,000 and more prisoners each, it has been witnessed that the prisons are similar to slaughter houses with corridors wide enough only for one person to pass at a time to and from cells. Now in Iran there are thousands of cameras, monitoring the movement of people in most important cities. I want to ask the people of the west what has happened to moral imperative?

Sultan Qaboos meets Ahmadinejad
Ahmadinejad reportedly on a trip to resolve a dispute over Islands and territories with Persian Gulf Arab Kingdoms. Other words possible fire sale of the Iranian territories to the Arabs. On the margins of the trip it must have been an uncomfortable meeting between Sultan Qaboos and Ahmadinejad. Qaboos suspected of being a homosexual yet an effective ruler and Ahmadinejad an executioner of homosexuals and ineffective president.

Iran tortures women with baseball bat
I do not particularly like the CNN host in the clip below, although I am glad this one western media source has aired this news weeks after it happened. It is very sad that these abuses are going on right now and no one will hear the screams, and no one will do anything about them.
