Iran accuses U.S. of interfering in election aftermath

For days, U.S. President Barack Obama has been careful not to say much about the crisis in Iran, lest the United States be accused of meddling. But on Wednesday, Iran leveled that accusation, saying America is guilty of  “intolerable” interference — a charge immediately rejected by the State Department.

The Iranian authorities continue to crack down on the opposition, with reports of new arrests. There were also new warnings from the Revolutionary Guard against Web sites and bloggers spreading word about the dispute.

Suzanne DiMaggio, the director of policy studies at The Asia Society, joins Martin Savidge to discuss Iran’s accusation, the flow of information from Iran and how events may play out.

“Reprehensible”, “beyond ridiculous”.
Because nothing like that has ever happened before, right ??
Except, it has.
Because there’s no motive ??
Except, there is.


“Reprehensible”, “beyond ridiculous”. Because nothing like that has ever happened before, right Roger. Such statements reflect a great job of programming …a credit to the State, its televised propaganda, and its fluoridation program.


Adjustment to the Previous Text:

…Collective Religions/Religious Heads Of Families…


Why does not Persia intellectually interfere with its own History Of Ideas, Words and Actions to see again that they have never done, in their past, anything remotely different from what they are doing now, in the manifestations of its Collective Subterranean Mindset, and never will…and that this Collective Underlying Matter which underlies this Collective Mindset…this Hidden Product…will seem like Change On The Surface Of Things to many but be, in Reality, only a mere slight revision again of Old Garments Of Unchanging Interpretations beneath Older Turbans Of Laws long worn on the Collective Religions Heads of the Families Of Ruling Bodies which are still describing by their Ideas, Words and Actions: ‘That-Which-Has-Always-Been-What-It-Is-By-Its-Own-Implicit-Nature’…in the entire region of literal thought and metaphorical landscape…throughout all the previous centuries, decades, years, days, minutes and seconds?…

Or, in other words:
(from an Old Text)

“Everything flows out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise and fall; the pendulum-swing manifests in everything; the measure of the swing to the right, is the measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates.”


The Iranian government is absurd in its assessment of the United States’ involvement. Perhaps, it is referring to Iranian-Americans living in the United States and elsewhere, as several reports remarked on the whole “Twitter” phenomenon, but to accuse the U.S. government of meddling is beyond ridiculous, and it goes to show that the Ahmadinejad administration is finding everything and anything to shift the spotlight off the violence that it has been involved in over the years. Completely reprehensible.
